What the heck?
So I'm suppose to have a repeat c-section. I just switched OBs, and at both places they said they won't set a date until I'm 36 weeks! I'm about 32 weeks now, feeling like I would feel better if I knew a date now! Anyone know why they won't scheduel until 36 weeks? Or is this just in my state?

Re: What the heck?
Ugh! I am sitting in the office of the surgeon who will do my c-section right now! This is the first time I will meet him. Was REALLLLLY hoping to schedule today at 34+1. I hope it's just your state but I'll let you know what happens!!

Re: What the heck?
Thanks I appreciate that. I feel like there are some moms on here that already know their date, the thought of waiting another four weeks to know is crazy. I mean I know going into labor and having a baby naturally is unpredictable, but a surgery requires more help and I'd like my partner to be able to plan his paternity leave sooner than later.

Re: What the heck?
Ya that sucks! I have to wait on my surgeon's office to call me to schedule- I would assume based on our conversation that they'd call in the next few days but we'll see!!

Re: What the heck?
I've heard of that, and it always seemed a little silly to me. It isn't like you are asking to be sectioned early, just to set a date. It isn't like your due date is likely to change this far in, nor is it impossible to reschedule if you go into labor early.

Re: What the heck?
This is my 3rd delivery with my OB. We have always scheduled my c-section on my 36 week visit. He always has had availability on the day I want to schedule it (even if its a weekend), so I never thought much on it. That is just the standard for his office.

Re: What the heck?
With reese i scheduled at 32 weeks, and now we have been talking about the schedule date for about a month.Reid should be here on the 12th.

Re: What the heck?
Mine wouldn't let me until they had their schedule available. I guess the hospital only let them schedule 3 mo out.

#1 was scheduled 2 days before birth (Florida).

#2 was scheduled at 36 weeks (Massachusetts).

#3 was scheduled around 32-34 weeks (Alabama).

#4 (same OB/hospital as #3) was scheduled at 28 weeks and I got the time for it today (32 weeks). I was really surprised to have it scheduled so early since I'm not used to that.

Re: What the heck?
Mines been scheduled for quite some time now, since around 24 weeks or so.

Re: What the heck?
Mine has been scheduled for about 3 or 4 weeks now, for 39 weeks and 6 days. My OB only schedules surgeries on Wednesdays and according to our state law, it has to be in the 39th week.
I don't see what's wrong with them just giving you a date to put on your calendar.. it would really help you plan.

Re: What the heck?
I scheduled mine for Sept 8th the last appoint which was last week (Thursday). They said they would call - but havent heard from them yet.

However, like Jelwz I am going to try for a VBAC if I go into labor before the 8th (39 weeks). *pending OB approval
