Re: C-section at almost 38 weeks....is it safe?
With my first I was a failed induction at exactly 38 weeks and ended up with a c-section. Baby was measuring big... turned out she was just going to be tall. She was 7 lbs 1 oz, but is in the 90 percentile for height since birth.
I switched doctors/hospitals this time around and was told that they wouldn't do a c-section before 39 weeks.
If your amnio comes back ok, and your doc is comfortable with it, and the baby is measuring ok, then yes, the decision is yours. I'd wait until at least 38 weeks, personally... but everyone is different. Is the impending holiday playing into your decisionmaking? If so, then I would definitely rethink it. Make sure you're doing what's best for the baby overall.
