Re: C-section scheduling by due date??
I know I have heard that c-sections are usually scheduled a week before your due date. And since you said he wasn't really interested in why you want a c-section, then I would agree that maybe he is intentionally doing it later in hopes you may just go into labor on your own. I don't know exactly what kind of heart problems you are dealing with, but it sounds to me that you have made the best decision by requesting a c-section. You know your body, and only you know what you can and can't handle. I would ask him why he is encouraging natural labor so much. Obviously, natural labor is the best option for most, but if you have this heart problem, then why would he not agree more for a c-section? And I'm sure you didn't just make this decision willy nilly without even giving it a thought, since you obviously know that c-sections are major surgery. No one would want to put themselves through that without a good reason, which I think you have a good reason. I would again very openly and honestly talk to him Monday at your appt and tell him your concerns and ask hime all your "what if" questions, like you had mentioned "what if I pass out" and see what he says. Good luck, and hang in there!!! Let us know what he says.
