I have been to the consultant today to book my section. After waiting for 1 hour and 10 minutes after my appointment I finally got to see one of the doctors attached to my consultant (who I have never met!). I told him I had decided to go with the section and he made me go into indepth reasons why! He worked out that I should have the section on xmas eve and was it alright to spend xmas there in the hospital, I looked at him with obvious disbelief in my eyes! The midwife also stared at him as if he was insane. they then got the diary out to discover that (surprise, surprise) they don't do sections on xmas eve! The next available date is 28th December at which point I will be 29 weeks and 4 days. What is the betting I go into labour on Xmas eve and end up in hospital any way. Ithought they did sections at 38 weeks but apparently it's now not before 39 weeks in Warrington. I am really fed up as it means the time my mum and dad arranged to have off after xmas will be before I have the baby and they won't be here to help me after I get out of hospital. Bloody pissed off!!
