When do you get c-section date?


Hey all

Im having a planned section this time as had problems last time which ended in an emergency section. Im just wondering, at how many weeks do they generally do these and how in advance do they let you know?

My other half is a teacher so will need as much notice as possible so they can arrange cover for his lessons?

We live in the UK.

I'm in Canada, but received my c-section date when I got the results of my 20 week growth ultrasound.

I am scheduled to have the c-section a week before my original due date.

My doctor booked mine for 38+4, so only 3 weeks and 5 days left!

But some ObGyns here do it earlier, my friend had hers at 37 weeks! A bit early I think but bubz was healthy and big! I think it just depends.

My doctor gave me the option of 7-10 days before (said that's as far as he'll go); so cheeky git that I am I booked it for the 10th day before my due date! Sue me for being impatient to meet my little man

My very first visit at 10wks doc put me down for my C-section. Standard planned C-sections occur 1wk before due date. So I'm scheduled for 39 wks. I suppose it's more tentatively scheduled at this point since I don't actually have a time and directions on when/where to show up. Doc doesn't think I'll make it to 39wks anyways - we'll see.

Generally around 32 weeks you will see consultant in the uk, then get booked in for 39 weeks. My c sec was 39+2 first time then 39+5 this time but I soon changed that!!

My doctor told me he would tell me at my next appointment. I will be 34 weeks by then and it should be around 7-10 days before my due date.

I have had mine scheduled for 39 weeks for a couple of weeks now. My obgyn wouldn't do it before 39 weeks since they say new research shows that isn't a good idea. I wish they would do it at 38 weeks like they did with my first two! There were no problems with them. My daughter weighed 6 lbs 12 oz and my son weighed 7 lbs 13 oz. at 38 weeks.

My third child was an attempted VBAC that wound up a c-section. She went 41 weeks yet weighed only 6 lbs 8 oz!

for info: NICE guidlines say for UK elective C-Sections should be done no earlier than 39 weeks.

BUt I dont know when people find out their date. I'm now hoping to not VBAC afterall but go for an elective section, so far the midwives say this is no prob, but I need to get on and book it..thats all I know.
