So I'm having a scheduled c/s like some others. The problem I'm having is this..... Although this will be my third c/s , its the first one that I have to plan. I don't like the idea of picking my child's bday . We are supposed to talk about a date at the next appt. My DH and I have tried to talk about it but keep drawing blanks. Aren't bdays God's job??
Did anyone else have this problem ?? Do you have any advice?

I never got to ask for a certain date, my doctor induced me with my 1st daughter 2 wks over my due date and I had an emergency c-section. With my 2nd daughter my doc decided we would schedule a c/s at 38 wks and he just choose the day he would be on at the hospital.

I am not sure how to respond, other than you might want to check with your pastor if you are having religious reservations about possibly choosing the date of your child's birth. Some people might look at it as predetermined and whatever choice you make will be one that your god has already destined you to make, thus your god did make that decision.

Honestly... I'm not sure as to what advice I can give, other than just pray about it hun. Whatever is meant to happen will happen.

I think it would be really strange to pick a birthday for my baby. My doctor schedules during the 39th week so it would limit me to 7 different days but I think it would still be hard.

mmm, Does having a date help you arrange/plan childcare for your older 2?

Is it normal to schedule them so far out? January seems like years away to me right now! That's the part that would make it hard for me, I'd want to know what my personal calendar looks like and knowing of other scheduling conflicts before scheduling DD.

As far as it being God's job....well, He *already* knows exactly what day it will be. IMHO it's irrelevant if you or a doctor pick a day, it's been predetermined.

Aiden 1/9/12 !
DS 9/9/04
DD 2/3/01
Happily married for 16 years!

You are scheduling because of the two previous c-sections, right? You don't *have* to schedule, even if you fully intend to have a surgical birth. There is the option of waiting for labor to begin and then going in for the surgery. I know many women that have no choice about the method of delivery, but still like to have their child choose the birth day.

There are many benefits to waiting for baby to decide when to be born for both the baby and yourself.

When they persisted in questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let the person among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." John 8:7

I never liked the idea of "picking" a birthday either. I had a planned c/s last time, but my daughter decided she didn't like that date and came earlier!! Will be having a planned again this time.

Thank you RaspberryBeret for my gorgeous siggy!

The way I see it, the day, no matter which day you pick, is already predetermined. My DS2 came 4 days before my scheduled c/s, so sometimes, they still get to pick the bday!
