    HUGE congrats Salgan on the arrival of Poppy Eden!!! I love the name - very cute - and I'm sure it suits her!!! Enjoy your fantastic rack too!!!

    Gemini and Mum2Angus - it sounds like both of you aren't far away now..lots of pre-labour signs there in your posts....I wouldn't worry about the baby being quiet - it's very very typical of late stage pregnancy - usually in the period directly before giving birth. But it's a bit worrying, I know. If I wake up in the morning and there's no movement in the first 10-15 minutes, I start getting worried...!!

    - LOVE LOVE those photos!! they are gorgeous :-)

    angenrod - wish I could help more specifically - but if this helps at all: I had vg delivery first time around, so I don't know if it's any different with a c-section at all....from what I remember the bleeding afterwards was similar to a mid-to-heavy period flow, and just for a bit longer......(I definitely remember saying to a friend at the time - "Wow, it's like nature's way of giving you back the last 9 periods I missed....." I think it took about 3-4 weeks to disappear completely.

    In any case, the nurses/midwives usually help with stuff like that, especially if you are unable to get out of bed. And after the process of childbirth etc, it's definitely less embarrassing than you would think. Plus if you keep in mind "that's what they do" and they've probably done it a thousand times. Doesn't seem so bad then.

    TMI, I know, but it's all part of the process, I guess!!! We all go through it!

    AFM - cruising along. Totally stalking BH for all the babies popping up now...!! Last week of work starts today, and I'm totally excited!! I've got so many plans for my Mat Leave (shopping, reading and movie dates with DH for the most part!).

    Also looking forward to watching lots of Olympics. I love that stuff - always have. So I'm completely stoked that Mat leave timing worked out the way it did!!!

    Angenrod - thought I could offer you some info as I just had a c section a week ago! For the first day I was stuck in bed - I have no idea what my loss was like as the midwives checked the pad and changed it when necessary.
    The next morning when I first got up I could feel some loss - some clots.
    I am still having some loss, 1 week later, but it's fairly light now.

    Hi to everyone else :-)

    Missbloggsy- thanks for that info! How was your pain afterwards as well? Are u home now? Is it hard at home after the surgery? Sorry for the bombardment of questions, just trying to prepare myself! Eeek!

    I can't go back an check previous posts as I'm on my phone, but thank you to the other poster who gave me info on "the blood loss"!! All info is good.

    Salgan - congratulations - hope everyone is well!

    Angenrod - glad you could get your answers from some of the other members. I'd be a bit scared about a Caesarian too - just the recovery after. Although I am really scared about giving birth - especially because last time I had an epidural and forceps, so this feels like the first time. I read in your other post about your step kids. I hope it all works out. I remember at Easter we were supposed to have DSS15 for half of the holidays but DH couldn't get any extra time off work. I told DH that I didn't want to have him on my own + a toddler + being 6 months pregnant. It sounds like you and DH have primary care though, so that would make it challenging. I hope they help out lots as you get closer and closer and once the baby is born.

    AFM - my two sisters and Mum are coming to stay on Saturday!! Mum will be staying here for 6 months which is great, but my sisters will be here for 2 weeks!!! They are a bit in your face and when DS was born, it felt like the paparazzi were there... They are both in their 40's with no children and not married, so won't be having any children of there own (even if they did meet someone soon, I hardly think a baby would fit into there lifestyle. So, I feel this puts a lot of pressure on me, as I am the only one in the family to have created my own family and created grandchildren etc..

    Anyway, really hoping to have this baby out before Saturday when everyone arrives, otherwise he/she needs to stay put for another 2 weeks!!

    Salgan - congratulations on the arrival of Poppy, such a beautiful name, hope you are all well.

    Angenrod - I had a C-section and its a pain, I bled quite alot with heaps of clotting. After the section in recovery they change your pad about every 5 mins!! then on the ward they keep changing it until you get back the use of your legs. I found it was really heavy for the first few days and lasted about 10-14 days, really yucky when your trying to have a shower and your bleeding quite badly, seems like a never ending clean sorry probably TMI!!

    The worst part for me was not being able to drive (although I got back in the car after 4 weeks - needed my wheels back) and the pain for the first few weeks is horrible. What no-one told me was that you wont get full feeling back on your tummy for about 6 months and its a weird sensation when you touch it.

    Hope this has helped and not put you off too much!!

    Hi Angenrod - yep, home now! Had bub on Monday and home on Friday. It is a bit sore but not as bad as I thought. Sometimes it's worse than others but I think I've only had 2 panadol since coming home. The hardest thing is the thought of not driving for 6 weeks!!!

    Mum2angus, miss bloggsy and womble- thank you all for your replies. I guess every woman has a different experience with c sections so I'm hoping and praying that mine is good and positive. Do they give you pain killers to take home or is it just Panadol?

    Mum2angus- yes we do have my step kids full time so the break I get in the holidays (when their bio mum decides to have them) is very welcomed by me. Although I get along with the step kids on the most part, one has ADD and drives me stir crazy so having a break is essential for me. Just hard that DH can't see this from my perspective. He only sees "his kids" without faults... This drives me mad. I'm the one who has to spend most time with them, he is out working all day and quite often all night too...

    I'm hoping to get a delivery date next Monday from my Ob. He was going to give me on last Monday but couldn't access his computer, but assured me he'll deliver between 2nd-9th August! So that 2-3 weeks away for me!! Yay

    Not sure if it was miss bloggsy or womble (sorry on phone and can't go back to look) but it sounds like the pressure really is on you with having babies seeming as though it looks like your sisters won't be having any! That's a huge responsibility. Hope you enjoy the 6 months with your mum though. She must be delighted to be able to spend 6 months with your new baby! How lovely

    What?!? Seriously you can't drive for that long? Do you know why that is?

    Oh man, I'll be screwed if that happens to me as hubby flies back to his work (abroad) after 3 weeks.
