I just got a call from my doctor. I was surprised that she called me personally. I don't think I have ever gotten a call from her. It has always been a nurse or someone else.
Anyway, the hospital only allows c-sections to be scheduled 3 times a day. They have openings on Wed April 2 and Friday April 4th. She told me she thought it better to schedule the c-section on the 4th because it is the 2nd section of the day and the one on the 2nd is the third. She said she is doing the first c-section of the day on the 4th and so knows that she will be done in a timely manner so I won't have to wait all day. The one on the 2nd is iffy at best and she worries I will be waiting around all day with nothing to eat.
So I agreed to schedule the c-section on April 4th. I arrive at 8am and she said the section will likely happen around 9:30am. If I go into labor earlier, she said to just go to L&D and they will call her and they will do the c-section then.
