Will they let me have a c-section at or past my due date? The Inconspicuous Raccoon 2 kids; Cincinnati, Ohio 1723 posts

Or will I have to have it a week early?



I had a c-section less than a year ago (at 39 weeks) so I pretty much have no chance as far as VBACs go.



But anywho...



Since it will be a planned c-section, are they going to make me have it done at 39 weeks or will they let me schedule it for my due date? I'm not due 'til February but this question has been on my mind.

I had my first at 41w1d, then my second at 39w4d. After 39 weeks, they let me pick the day.

When I had a scheduled c-section my doctor said he didn't want me going to 40 weeks. I had mine done at 39w 4d.

My OB scheduled my second and third for 39 weeks. I went before for both my repeats though.

Okay, I'd rather have it at my due date, but I can deal with 39 weeks & however many days lol.



Thank you :)

They won't let you go 40+weeks. Chances of going into labor on your own is too high. I tried this option with my last c-sec ( I wanted to go into labor on my own). With the dr's schedules, it has to be planned.
