I still haven't convinced my doctor to give me a c section yet ( I have an appointment with a specialist on wed ) but here they dont organize the c section date until pretty much around 35 - 36 weeks or so I think.

I think I've had my date since about...24 weeks or so! And I wasn't even the first booked in with my ob for that day! He said (this is private health) that some women when they know they'll be having a c/s, come to their first appt and say 'this is the day I want'!!

I know a lady going public due on the same day as me, and she was very frustrated as they wouldn't give her a date til about 35 weeks.

Thanks to Meganpixel for my beautiful siggie!

With DD we scheduled it the same day we decided to have one.
With DS I scheduled it at my 8 week appointment. DH is military and we needed all the planning we could get.

That's a good question. I was told they are doing an amnio in August and if the lungs are developed they will take her out the next day. I will ask them at my next appt when the date for that will be set. Thanks. I didn't even think of that!
