After those first hours, I started feeling better. The only scary thing was sleeping on my back - I kept waking up unable to breathe because my tongue was sliding back into my throat. ???!!! My husband was sleeping in my hospital room with me and says I kept making weird sounds... I was choking on my tongue!!!
Anyway, the rest of recovery was fine. I was eating, using the bathroom, walking around only 24 hours after the c/s. I was a big wuss about having the bandage tape pulled off my sensitive skin - OUCH - but saturating it with oil helped.
Sooo, here we are again, with a *planned* c/s this time, and I'm a little nervous. I have a new ObGyn now, but haven't talked with him yet about my concerns. He is nice, but tends to think I worry too much as it is. So I try not to tell him ALL my worries!
This time might be a lot better - that's what I'm telling myself. No induction meds, no labor, no epidural - Spinal this time.
What do you all think? Can you relate to any of my last experience? Do you think it will go better this time?
(I have several health complications, including type 1 diabetes, which means birth must be induced or c/s'd at 38 weeks... the placenta starts to deteriorate, our dd was only 5#12oz.)
