It's official! I go in at 8;30 am on Friday May 15th for my c/s, first baby! It feels so good to have an end in sight!


Anyone have any advice? things I should expect, ask for, beware of?


Hooray!

Congratulations on your upcoming birth. Isn't it exciting to pretty much know when you baby is going to arrive!? I loved that about my last C section which was scheduled.


A couple thoughts for you

Thanks!


I'm definateley gonna ask for at least one hand free, and will ask about the temperature and lighting in the OR.


I don't want to be too out of it, but I'm wondering if I should ask for a valium or something like that to start with? I don't want to suddenly get panicky.....WDYT?

It's hard for me to say because I don't know your anxiety level! If you're worried about the C section, then it might make sense... but I've never done that because I'm not that anxious and I would be worried about being too doped to "enjoy" everything... KWIM?
