Scheduled c section! [Wyatts]-Mommy-(: Due July 11; 1 child; Bucyrus, Ohio 941 posts

I am having a scheduled c section and was wondering something.
Do you mommas consider the day your scheduled as your due date or the due date the doctor gave you at first?



Just something I was thinking about

Neither. They normally schedule it around 39weeks.

I consider the original due date the due date, for things like, googling info on what week of pregnancy i'm in- the answer to "how far along are you?" etc etc.
but as far as "counting down"/being prepared, i go by the scheduled date, if not earlier.



But yeah- the due date as the due date.

That's what I was going by, but my friend who had c sections also said it was the date you were scheduled. So it had me thinking.



I have my c section when I'm 38 weeks and 3 days... Because it would be the forth and my doctor has that holiday off and I told him I did NOT want the on call doctor to do it.

EDD stays the same.



My EDD with #2 was November 4. C/S was scheduled for October 28 (39 weeks exactly). She decided to arrive October 17 (37+3)

I had a c/s on July 1st because the 4th was a holiday :) I was 38w 6d



With all of mine though, I kept the DD and then when I knew the date of the c/s I used that as my "count down" date.

This. A dd isn't necessarily the day you'll have your baby. And even a scheded csection doesn't mean anything cause baby might have its own plans haha. I had my csection scheduled jan 25 and was due feb 25. I wouldn't say my dd was jan 25th that's ridiculous haha
