Well at my appt on thursday we started to discuss a date. First appt she had said between Christmas and New Years. She changed my date 1 day back to the 30th- so she likes to do the section 7 days before. That gives us the 23rd. Here they keep you in 4-5 days after a section. With my ds i tried getting out on the 3rd day as I was feeling good and no go. She said that we could try to make sure I get out sooner so that I can be home for christmas- but lol not sure dh can do the santa thing by himself or other option is wait till the 27th as the 26 is a holiday and no booked surgeries only emergencies.
So do I wait till 3 days before my due date or go in right before christmas?? I want to avoid an emergency situation so thinking that before christmas might be better- but being so close to christmas I don't think I will feel like going to parents and in laws for christmas 2 -3 days after a c-section.
Sorry so long- just trying to think out loud and see what may be the best - it might be nice to be able to relax for christmas with just my dh, ds, dd for christmas and family can come visit us instead of us driving around every where.
OB said we will discuss further as she will book a date late October early Nov.
