Hi Everyone!

I'm from the October EC but am having a c-section so I thought I would check this out! My original c-section date was the 17th, but I found out yesterday that due to my high blood pressure we were moving it up to Monday! I have to get my lab work done today (just blood I guess?!?)... they didn't really tell me. Also, the doctor just said to be at the hospital by 9, wash with dial soap before hand and don't eat after midnight. Uhm, that's all? He briefly explained the surgery (incision down low - baby out fast... that was it, literally). I'm just wondering if there is anything else that I need to know that he didn't mention... surely there's SOMETHING!

Any help would be great bc at this point in time I'm nervous that they've forgotten something crucial!

Thanks!

The one thing I wish I had known was to bring some granny knickers.

welcome to the board and congrats on your very quickly approaching delivery.

The best thing I can suggest to you is read over the birth plan on this board. Write down anything that you want answered and have a list for the doctor/nursing staff when you are admitted.

here is the link to the boards birth plan and suggestions from members....

Good luck to you and keep us posted, let us know if there is anything specific you have questions about. I'm sure there will be ladies on and off of the board all weekend long.

Actually, that's more than what I was told. I was never told to wash with Dial soap before hand. lol
