    Both mine were elective c sections... dd 38 ds 39 weeks. Reason... because I wanted c sections. Current babies are c sections too and will be delivered at 36 weeks... unless they come earlier of course.

    I just had mine and I don't have GD.

    With my DD1 I had no complications and went 10 days over but I'm high risk now after loosing DD2, so maybe that might sway things for a 38 week csection too.

    @French Pear my OB was only ever going to let me go to 38 weeks before elective c-section or induction. I chose the c-section, and was booked in for 38+1 day. It's just that bub needed to come out a bit earlier than that. With your previous experience I'd be surprised if your OB would let you go too far past that.

    BTW my scans were wrong about size. Bubba was much smaller than predicted.

    Our ob aimed for 38 and said that was her norm and would stretch me out a bit longer if possible

    I hope that things go well and I can deliver at 38 weeks it would be nice to gave the constant anxiety gone and a healthy babe in my arms @Cat74 I'll definitely be discussing with my OB and locking in a date at my next appointment.
