Hi All,


I am almost 34 weeks pregnant after lots of struggles with infertility.

I don't have any first hand experience but I can answer your 2nd question about scheduling last minute. If your doctor is willing and feels its best he/she can always schedule your c-section for as close to your due date as possible. My 1st one was about a week before my due date, but we had issues so he had to come out. My second c was scheduled for my due date and we did the section at that time since there was no sign of labour. Your best bet is to definitely talk to your doctor it never does hurt to get a 2nd opinion if you feel you want another opinion. And most important listen to your head, it's amazing what intuition women have.

Read over the birth plan section if you haven't already and be sure to keep us posted, we're always here if you have questions.

I totally think it's possible to schedule a last minute section - of course it depends on your doctor's comfort level and any medical issues that you might have. If you do go into labor before your scheduled section - depending on your provider's practice - you may have a different doctor deliver your baby but everything should be okay and your baby will actually benefit from a few contractions and some "squeezing" of those little lungs.


I was sick during my first C section and they gave me some IV medication that almost immediately relieved the vomiting. I didn't get sick with my 2nd C section, but with this last one once the procedure was over and the nurse was putting hard pressure on my uterus, I threw up. At that point, there wasn't much that they could do b/c the procedure was pretty much over... and the vomiting feeling diappeared pretty quickly once the pressure was relieved.


Good luck with your upcoming birth! And congratulations again -- you must be especially excited if you've waited awhile to have your little one! I wish you all the best...
