I'm having my c-section Thursday 26th at 38 weeks for Placenta Previa. We did think I would have to have it at 36 weeks due to bleeding. Don't worry (and I know that's hard) a doctor wouldn't schedule a c-section unless they were sure. Good luck
My first csection was at 37 weeks but it wasn't scheduled that early. I went into labor early and wanted to still have my csection.
I had an emergency c-section with my first. Planning for a vbac this time. Good luck! Healing was a process, but the c-section went well as did recovery. And I was fully able to care for my daughter after.
