Would a BTDT mom answer some questions for me? I'm still hoping my baby flips, but I'm trying to mentally prepare for a c-section in case he stays breech. I'm a worrier, lol, things are easier for me to handle when I know what to expect.
Does the epidural hurt?
Do you have a catheder? And it is it while you are not numb, or just during surgery?
Am I supposed to shave down there before surgery?
How long until you could drive again?
What were your weight lifting restrictions? (Can I get my 20 pound stroller out of the trunk? A 10-15 pound playpen? Groceries, laundry, all of that...)
Will I be able to wear my full-panel maternity pants after birth, or do I need something low cut that will go below the incision line?
Thanks in advance for any input! My midwife is one of those that just says, "Don't worry, everything will be fine, and it's different for every person." But I'm intimidated about the unknown, it's easier if I have a general idea of what to expect.
