It doesn't make any sense to me. Why does my OB think 40 weeks and beyond is potentially deadly?
I'm not sure, I haven't heard that. I know my ob schedules the rcs at 39 weeks to avoid going into labor but that's if you're not attempting a vbac.

Any update? Have you talked with dh?

The hospital that I plan on giving birth in has one of the lowest cesarian rates in town, and has history of successful VBAmC's. He has not scheduled a cesarean date yet, but if he tries to, I'll probably throw a fit. I plan on throwing a lot of fits once I go into labor to get out of the interventions too. I'm due around late March/Early I figure I'll start having to fight for my VBA2C as the time gets closer.
Good luck! I hope you have a mostly intervention free vbac!
