I'll most likely be having a repeat c/s in late July, but I am already getting nervous.
With the birth of my fist child I had an unplanned c/s after three hours of trying to push my posterior facing daughter out. I am pretty sure after all the work and back labor they could have yanked her out thru my bellybutton and I wouldn't have cared. I felt no discomfort during the surgery and don't remember what getting an epidural was like. Only thing I didn't like during surgery was the uncontrollable shivering.
So now that I know that this one will be planned I am anticipating the surgery being horribly uncomfortable, epidural being painful and getting really freaked out, will recovery be a little easier. This isn't my first scheduled surgery either. I had abdominal laproscopic surgery in 2003 and wasn't nervous at all.
I guess I am just looking for some reassurance that it won't be as bad as I am (ALREADY) thinking it will be.
And Hi Heide! You were on the May 2007 Miracle Board with me! I'm definitely going to be picking your brain about your experiences.
