They might postpone it for a day or two, especially if your chest has been affected by the virus. Good plan just to rest and hopefully you'll be well enough.

Just got awful cough and had headaches for over 1o days and sore throat, stuffy etc ;(
Really dont want to postpone it!

I know you don't want to postpone it, but having a newborn and a virus is not going to be fun. And if you have a cough then surely a section is not a good idea?!

I hope they do postpone as (whilst I understand your late pg desire to get it over with) I think they'd be irresponsible to continue.

Good luck - I hope you feel better soon.

I would have a C-section but my child is the Holy Messiah so I must be above such earthly temptations.

I do have strep b so i want a c section as this is the best way to try and prevent it in a newborn rather than go into labour. I guess i will have to just rest and hope it goes in time ;(
