    Thanks, I have one booked for 39 weeks, but am considering 38 weeks. I haven't spoken to my OB, but my paediatrician has said it would be fine and many have them at 38 weeks - I'm just a little unsure as my reasons for moving it relate to my emotional health rather than physical - but I suppose emotional health is just as important

    Mine was booked for 39 weeks exactly. If i was to have more kids in the future I wouldn't go for one until 40 weeks. My daughter had so many issues and i was told that even a week early can be the cause for most of those things i definitely wouldn't go at 38 weeks

    I have an elective c-section booked for tomorrow, and I will be 40 + 1. I was hoping for a VBAC so will have an exam tomorrow and if bub has engaged and cervix is dilated, then the c-section will be cancelled and I will have my waters broken instead.

    I did have an emergency c-section last time at 37 + 5.

    38+1 bubs was just fine This time I'm going public and they said 40 weeks, but I'm asking for it to be booked earlier for mental health reasons.

    Mines booked for 37+3. A bit early but with two on board I'm not sure I'd cope if it were any longer!
