planned cs

For those of you who had planned csections, were you able to go to your due date? Or was it earlier?

Re: planned cs

They let me! However, I my history is that I have very healthy pregnancies, but simply do not go into labor! My cervix refuses to admit a baby is in there!!! So, they also know I'm not going to go into labor. So I don't know if those thing play into it all. But anyway, I had no problem with it!

I asked my doc to let me go to my due date with my second c-section. The day he schedules was 3 days after my due date, but he said if I went into labor, to just come in and he'd do the c-section. I went into labor on my due date and we went in and had the c-section eventually. That is a very long, frustrating story short and I will never do that again.

With my 3rd c-section, I just scheduled the c-section at 39 weeks pregnant.

Ashersmomoo,

I was just wondering, since you said your body never goes into labor, how long were you allowed to go past your due dates? Did you try for a VBAC with any of your subsequent pregnancies? Just curious, because I had an unnecessary c-section with my first at about 39 weeks and had not dilated or effaced at that point and with DD#2 I went to 41 and 6 days and until I actually was in active labor I thought my body would never go into labor on its own...just curious.

I went into labor with DS at 38w 5 d and ended up with an emergency section due to not being able to deliver naturally. They scheduled me for a repeat section with dd at 38w 6 d and this time I am going in at 38 w 4d

No, my drs have never wanted me to get that close. My first 2 children I labored and tried but they wouldn't come out. #3,5 & 5 were planned

Re: planned cs

My ob will do a scheduled repeat C-section anytime after 39 weeks (not before unless there is a medical reason) and prefers to do them on Monday or Tuesday. I had my dd at 39 weeks exactly, ds at 37 weeks 6 days (low amniotic fluid), and I am tentatively scheduled for this baby at 39 weeks again.
