I need advice on when I should schedule my c-section. The standard for my dr.'s office is to deliver at 39wks, though they will let me wait until I hit 40wks if I want. 39wks would be Aug 18, but my husband's birthday is Aug 20, so we're debating if we should shoot for the 20th so they can share a birthday. My husband is indifferent about whether or not to share his birthday and says it's up to me. Any advice? Do you think it's a good idea for a father and son to share a birthday or should we purposely avoid it? I'm also a little tempted to wait to see if I go into labor on my own (they'll only let me attempt a VBAC if I'm at or past 4cm when I go in), but since my first child was so big, (9lb 3oz and a c-section after 3hrs of pushing in vain) it would probably end in a c-section anyway. Any and all advice welcome. Thanks!!
