I had twins by c-section in 2007 and I am pregnant again and is going to have another one. How does it exactly work? I had them at 39 weeks and I am due on Christmas Eve and really dont want to spend the holidays in the hospital. When do they usually schedule it?

Scheduled sections are usually done around 38-39 weeks.

Hi & Congrats on your new pregnancy!! My experience is that doctors like schedule C sections for singletons around 39 weeks. My last baby was due early January and was born on 12/29. Because it was around Christmas my doctor was willing to work with me... we actually scheduled her a little early. (38/5, I think!)


If you are due on 12/24, I think they'll actually schedule you about a week before then!


G/L and keep us posted!
