@hopefullys - You are worried about fainting, I almost did..twice! The anesthesiologist told me to let him know if I was feeling light headed so he could get me the meds to prevent it. He was monitoring my blood pressure and could see it dropping. I got the meds twice and they worked like a charm! If you really think you will faint let them know before you go in, I am sure you will have an anesthesiologist there.
Oh sorry to hear that lile that must of been just horrendous n defo makes having a section sound much safer for baby. I keep telling myself that n glad I wont have gone through 36 hrs in labour beforehand aswell as baby getting stuck. I be so relieved when its done! Not looking forward to the soreness after but I'm already sore now with my hips n everything anyway! X
I've heard planned sections r so much easier to recover than emergency
Cos u haven't had any labour
So u shouldn't be exhausted as well as physical recovery.
Nearly there now hon
U will hve ur little bub very soon xxx
I've had both a ceserean and then a vaginal birth with number 2. If I had a 3rd I'd have an elective ceserean.
• No going overdue
• No swollen vagina
• No tearing
• No feeling like you've got weights hanging from it.
• No agonising stinging when you wee.
For me the recovery from my first ceserean was 100% easier than a vaginal birth. 5 weeks on and I still can't stand up for more than a few minutes without feeling like all of my organs are going to fall out of it!
U will do great.
Try sleep tonight.
Then focus on each step by step tomorrow
Step one get to hosp
Step two check in.
Don't let ur mind go too far ahead
Except for thinking about baby cuddles
That's how I do things I'm nervous about
If I let myself race ahead.
I work myself up.
