We have a date

Last Thursday at my last check my nurse told me that I have been put on my MFMs operating schedule! :D He will do it rather than a doc I don't know. I was a bit surprised about that (in a good way), but I am very happy, as I trust him very much and am happy with my care I am receiving during this pregnancy! If all goes well (and so far it seems it will - another yay), we will meet our sweet baby on 11/12/12. It will be a repeat c-section at 36.6 weeks gestation due to my classical one I had last time around.

Let's hope that the next two months will go by without any major bumps or worries!

Yay! And what a perfect birthday! So they aren't making you do an amnio for lung maturity? (I did one at 36+1 with Luke, but my water broke and I went into labor that evening, so they don't want to risk that happening again, this time we are delivering at 37 wks exactly, no amnio, but I talked my MFM into giving me steroids at 32-33 wks just in case.)

Our babies will be just a few days apart, my delivery date is 10/26 .

I did not see my doctor at my last appointment, only the nurse (and she was not my regular one either), but I will ask my MFM about amnio, but my guess is that I won't need one, as they would not let me go past 37 weeks anyways. I will definitely ask about the steroid shots though. Will let you know what they say
