Quoting MZJ:" <blockquote><b>Quoting snugglemama:</b>" you pushed and pushed to make them deliver ... [snip!] ... My thoughts exactly. Babies come when they are ready. An early baby isn't worth the trip to the NICU."
due dates can be off by 2 weeks either way. I pushed and pushed to hold off my section as long as possible. Because I live an hour from the hospital, and he only had one date available anyway... he did my section at 39 weeks anyway.
when my baby was born.. I was told by the nursery nurses that she was almost definitely 37 weeks not 39. If he'd done the section earlier.. she'd have been preterm.
