    Default Elective c-section

    Hi ladies,

    I'm attending sunshine hospital and this will be my 3rd c-section. Just trying to work out dates etc for time off work and support etc. Does anyone know roughly when they will schedule it in for? Is it much earlier than my due date etc?

    Not sure about your hospital, but at mine they do scheduled cesars on Thursdays at 39weeks. They are very specific! Unless there's a medical reason to do it earlier.

    My date is 38+2.
    I was given the date in my first trimester, this is via a private OB.
