Planned c section question

With my son I had a horrible 41 hour labor with a failed induction where he got stuck with a failed attempt to manually turn him (ow) and I had a c section at 9 cm. The epidural failed so I had to go under general. This time around I’m almost 30 weeks with gestational diabetes and a couple other probs so I’ll have to do another c section and I’m terrified. What week do you usually have a planned c??? Pic of new baby for reference

They usually like to do them at 39 weeks if there are no pregnancy complications that would make them want to schedule earlier. I had mine at 37+5 due to pre eclampsia but my doctor would’ve liked to make it an extra week if I would’ve been fine.

39+4 - also had GD and couple of other problems/risk after my first child that was a traumatic delivery too via ventouse luckily no emergency csection that time :) this one was a planned section and was great :) would do it again if i had another child :)

Both of my c sections were scheduled for 39 weeks. My daughter was born on her scheduled date but my son was a week early due to my water breaking but we got to the hospital pretty quickly and were able to still do my c section
