C-section this Wed! I'm terrified!

Hello All

Well baby girl decided that she was too happy in my belly to come out early. I want her out!!! She's pushing 8 lbs now and I am feeling every inch of her. The C is on for Wednesday AM. Fear has started to set in. I'm terrified. I've had surgery before, but never awake. Anything I should know?

I love my OB and I know that the baby is doing well. I am just so scared. I guess it's natural.

Any advise???

Carrie

Yay Carrie! Wednesday! Just think that it won't be long before you get to meet your little girl and to hold her in your arms!! I think it's natural to be scared before a scheduled C - I anticipate that I will be very nervous almost to the point of not being able to sleep the night before my section. HOWEVER, let me also tell you that it's completely normal to be freaked out as a FTM anticipating labor and you don't know when it's going to start or what to expect.


It sounds like you have a great doctor and are in good hands so there isn't anything to worry about!!


I can't wait to hear your birth story - please come back and upadate us!
