C-section date finally finalized!

So the date is now scheduled- and we ended up having to stick with the 22nd of December. The fetal assessment where I have to go for the pre-op appt the day before is closed on the 26 and 27th.
She called the sx department for me instead of having to wait for my OB office to call and wait for an answer- they are not booking surgeries for those days they are closed too. only emergencies.

So 21st is the pre-op appointment and the 22nd I have to be there at 8:15 am. The kids last day of school, so they will go to school and my mom will pick them up at noon and bring them to the hospital. With the last two the surgery was done about noon.

So fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly and they will let me go home at least on Christmas day!!
My ds was so sweet- he told me they could videotape Christmas morning, take lots of pictures for me and will wait for me to come home to open the rest of the presents.

Oh good!! (And I'm totally jealous that you know when the baby is coming!) Your son is so cute, I just love his videotape offer.

Yay! I'm sure it feels great to have that settled and not have to worry about it anymore.

YAY! A Christmas baby! It must be nice to "know" when your baby is coming!

I'm glad you have some clarity on dates now - it will help you plan out your Christmas celebrations. I wonder if they would let you go home on the 24th? My ob had told me at one point that if I delivered on the 26th he would let me go home on the 28th - I said no thanks - I want to be taken care of as long as insurance allows.

I forgot about pre-op appts! My hospital is "closed" for scheduled sections on the 26th too and they have me scheduled for the 27th - wonder if I can still do pre-op on the 26th?

The lady in pre-op told me you have to have everything done max of 3 days before the c-section- so maybe the department will be open on the 24th for limited hrs for you to go in. Because the holiday is on the weekend- certain gov places/hospital take the two days following off. I was surprised that they were not scheduling for the 27th. I would give them a call if they havn't called you yet.

Just wanted to add- that I am finally relieved that everything is set and we can now plan accordingly.

Glad that you have a date even if it wasn't the ideal date you initially wanted. Hopefully you get home Christmas Day and how sweet of your son.
