    Yep private. Thanks, I will do that for my own peace of mind. My DD was fine apart from needing a boost with her oxygen, but it was really tough not having her with me and visitors not being able to see her and I really would like to avoid that again.

    Thanks for your help!

    DD was born by c-section at 36/37 weeks (I went into labour when I was still 36 weeks but by the time she was born she had JUST hit 37 weeks). Had some minor issues but nothing major. I know you were hoping to hear from people who had elective c-sections which I didn't, but wanted to let you know my ob said if I had another baby he would do the c-section at 39 weeks. I was surprised because I risk complications (for myself) by going into labour first (unless they can get me into theatre quickly), plus I went into labour last time at 36 weeks, but he still said it was not advisable to schedule the c-section before 39 weeks.

    I believe medical guidelines now strongly discourage csections before 39 weeks unless medically necessary

    I personally wouldn't take the risk of having a bub in special care

    My DD was born at 37 w and 5days.

    She had an APGAR score of 9.

    She didn't need any special care time and she thrived.

    One thing I did notice is that for the first year of her life, her lungs almost always sounded a bit gurgly. She didn't wheeze or have issues with energy or oxygenating but until she could really cough properly at a 1 year old, she always sounded fluidy on her lungs.

    She is fine now and she didn't get sick from it but I do think this was leftover fluid on her lungs caused by having a c/s.

    I didn't have a c-section but Dd was induced at 38 weeks. She didn't need special care but was very sleepy which made breastfeeding harder than I think it would have been had she been full term. I 'd definitely push for 39 weeks as there are plenty of studies showing increased risks at 38 weeks

    wrena thanks so much for those links, was very informative. I think following this thread I will definitely be pushing for the 39 week mark. Thanks again to everyone who shared their experiences
