    :hugs: f&c! I hope your little one comes soon with out any problems! FYI - I only spent 2 days in the hospital after my c-section. My doc said that they've seen better recovery with c-sections when women get home and get moving. I was able to get up off the couch without help (which is a trick, right?!) within just a day or two of coming home. So hopefully *if* it does end in another c-section for you, the recovery will be better than what you experienced the first time. But hopefully you'll have a natural birth just as you wanted!

    Good luck to all those still waiting for their babies! I can't believe November is just about over! crazy!!

    Hope your lo is here soon f&c!
    I also had a good c section experience, and it was an emergency one ending in me having a very large incision due to his big head!
    I had heard getting up and moving helps with healing so as soon as I was cleared to I was up and walking! Oh and I don't know about other people but the fluids they give you after, as soon as you're eating/drinking on your own tell them to scrap them! I didn't know better and I was eating/drinking right away (I like food heehee) and I started to retain water like crazy! I was just being pumped full of to much fluid. After I asked them to get rid of I'v I started to feel way better and swelling started to go down.
    If lo wasn't in NICU I easily could have gone home after day and a half and been ok.

    Apparently your body goes into shock after a c section so water retention is very common. I had it bad last time and expected it to disappear as soon as my son was born but it got worse.

    My ds also had a big head at 38.5cm. This one they're predicting 37.5 so still pretty big. Hopefully if he's in the right position though I can do it vaginally. Fingers crossed.

    Good luck f&c!
    I didn't have my emcs because of his big head so you deff may be able to do it vaginally!

    Ya they say to expect water retention but this was insane! I'm a tiny person and I got huge! When I was transferred to the hospital my son had to get transferred to they were the ones to take my iv down and they even said it was cranked too high and no need for how much they were pumping in me. Silly other hospital!

    Haha ya. They kept telling me all along about his big head (bound to happen his dad has a big head and his brother, my stepson) not going to lie I was terrified about vaginal birth with his head haha.
    When he was born at 35weeks exactly his head was a full term size I'm told. The actually had to use forceps to get him outa my stomach! Partly cause he's a stubborn like man and I guess was burrying it away from her haha. I don't know the measurement off hand I have it written dowbm

    Are you using raspberry leaf tea? I hear that helps.

    Good luck! :)

    Yay F&C!! I'm so glad your little guy came on his own and you got your vbac!!

    Congrats to all the other new moms! Come join us in the baby club forum!!

    And speaking of water retention after a c-section! Holy!!! I was hugely swollen during pregnancy and I didn't think it could get any worse... but oh yes it did!! I left the hospital weighing more than when I went in! I lost a couple pounds, but it wasn't until about 2 weeks pp that it started pouring out. I lost 6 pounds over night one night and 5 pounds over night 2 nights later (was up all night peeing). Oh so fun!! I'm still not down completely - my socks still leave a nice band around my ankle - but my feet almost look normal again!!

    It's crazy how much water the body expels after delivery. Unlike last time when it got worse after my c section, this time just hours after delivery I did 2 litres of pee due to my body getting rid of the stuff.

    I'll write up a birth story asap xx
