... did you give birth? How far along were you when you had your c-section?

C-Sections Are Now More Often Done Closer to Mom's Due Date-

Not only has the nation's high level of C-sections finally stopped rising, but more of the operations are taking place closer to the mother's due date, a new government report found.

Figures released Thursday show what appears to be a significant shift in when pregnant women have cesarean sections. Experts called the change great news – apparent evidence that doctors and women have absorbed warnings about the risks of C-sections and the importance of waiting to deliver until the baby is full-term.

39 weeks.  I was scheduled to deliver on the Friday of that week, but ended up going into labor and had to deliver a day earlier than planned.
