what would you do??

my daughter will be 3 just 2 weeks before my scheduled csection at 39 weeks. I want her to have a birthday party so she can be the center of attention once more before her little brother comes along. I went into labor and had my daughter at only 33 weeks and I am worried I will plan her a bday party and have baby before the party or that I will go into labor at her party lol. I really want to hold this baby in until im 39 weeks so their birthdays are atleast 2 weeks apart so they each get their special day all to themselves, im just so worried that this year my daughter will be robbed of her birthday cause I will be huge and pregnant or having a baby. should I have her party the week before her bday to lessen the chance of the baby coming before her party?? or just have the party on her bday and hope for the best?

Like the previous poster said, I'd plan a big early birthday party.. then on her actual birthday have a smaller celebration && focus all your attention on her..  that's what we do every year for my son bc he was born on the 4th of July && everyone usually already has plans.. but bottom line, he gets 2 days to celebrate his birthday instead of 1 so he enjoys it (:

My daughter turns 3 the day after my due date. I'm just going to plan an early birthday party and whatever happens, happens. It sounds bad but you can't really stress about it too much.

I would say plan a big party early and if you're still pregnant on her birthday have a smaller celebration
