    Depends on what day your OB does c/s. My OB did c/s on Fridays so my first was at 38+3 as he didn't like doing after 39 weeks being so close to going into labour. My other 2 electives were medical related so they were between 35-37 weeks.

    DD1 39 on the dot.
    DD2 39+1.

    It's preferable now to wait to 39 weeks. I had planned on 39+5 but my ob got worried the week before and made it a few days earlier.

    Thanks for the replies Hoping they'll wait until at least 39 weeks, or ideally until I go into labour so I know bub is ready.

    39 weeks on the dot for mine. Was scheduled on a Tuesday as that was obviously the day my Ob does planned CS.
