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?
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!!
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.
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.
Thanks to Bokkechick for the lovely siggie!

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.
JaxonJocelyn Gabriel Grayson and due in September!
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.
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
