Did anyone get there 'date' during 28 week check up?
Asking because I have my consultant apt coming up on Tuesday and I know they see me for the last time at the next apt at 36 weeks which is when they will probably give me my date but has anyone requested it around this time (I'm nearly 28 weeks).
The reason I would like to know sooner than later is because OH and some family members need to give 2-3 months notice to book holidays/time off work!!
So many things can change between 28 weeks and delivery. We thought Joshua might come at 26 weeks, and at every appoitment (3 times a week) they wouldn't give me a date. They eventually told me on a Friday, to be there on Monday. If you were having a normal birth, your oh wouldn't know the date. As long as he has told his boss and formally asked for his paternity leave, they have to give him the time off. Even when you do get a date, until you're in the theatre it can still change dependent on emergencies that come in. x
My OB's office called to discuss the date when I was around 24 weeks (I'm 32 weeks now)....it's been booked for May 9 @ 12:30pm. I'll be 39 and 6...I wish it was right on the 39 mark but my doctor is out of town and I really want him to deliver this baby as his surgical skills are second to none apparently plus I trust him implicitly. Obviously, if I go ino labour early I won't have a choice unless he is on call but no point in agonizing about it now!!
and it's the 6th June, exactly 39 weeks and when I thought it would be. The appointment with the consultant went OK but he did scare me a bit with the risks of havin a section :s but.. he could see I was adament I was having one and I did recover very well last time so I'm sure all will be fine. So excited!!! Seems after this 2nd section I won't be able to have a vaginal delivery anyway.. good!!!! haha
