your very first c-section?
I think for me it was truely the fear of the unknown.

Hugs to all!
To be honest, I can't say I was afraid at all. I didn't find any of it scarey. I trusted that the right decision was being made, and it was being done in the best interest of my child. Then with dh in the room talking about how cool it all was, lol .....
I just tend not to allow fear to rule my thoughts. I truely believe fear is 99.99% of the time a choice - weird, I know ;o)

yeah and it was so much more messy with a vaginal birth.(TMI-be forewarned) i bled steadily for almost a month. here i am 2 weeks after my c section with a tiny bit of spotting. i definitely like this. i think i may opt for another c section if/when i have another child...(right now thats the furthest thing from my mind, but maybe in a few years...)all in all, the staples werent that bad-and theyve been gone for a week. this numb feeling on the incision is a new thing too, but not entirely unpleasant...like i said maybe i would go for another one when the time comes...
For me, it cam after 32 hours of labor and 3+ hours of pushing. When I heard
Best of luck to everyone! It's scary but I figure it can't be any scarier than pushing the baby out yourself! LOL
