My Dr. is using the due date of 2/27/10 (Sat.) and my ultrasound puts me at 2/25/10 (Thur). This is my 3rd child and I am 34 yrs old. When they called to schedule my c-section, they only offered me the date 2/22/10 (Mon). So according to when I think I conceived (goes with ultasounds timing) my c-section will only be a few days before that. I am worried about going into labor early and having to find someone to watch my 3 kids at the last minute. Plus since this is my 3rd c-section, I worry about complications due to scar tissue and things. I just don't want any on call Dr to do it.
I know c-section are usually done 38-39 weeks. I think I should push to move this date up to 38 1/2 weeks. What are your thoughts?
My 10 yr old also has a dance competition 2/20-2/21 so I would have to be stuck there and go into labor! Yikes.
4th little mokey!
First of all, I am pushing for 2/27/10 b/c that's my daughter's first birthday. That being said, I would think that the doctor would be able to accommodate your wishes. Have you discussed it with the Doc?
