Hi, as the title suggests, I have to have a scheduled c-section at 39 weeks (39+4). My first was an emergency c-section after DD became very stuck. I have a low lying placenta and a rather large baby on board, so not much choice unfortunately. I trust my ob 110% so this isn't a question of that decision.
Anyway, I thought I was ok with this, but after I broke down at the ob appointment the other day when it was confirmed, obviously I am not. So - I have to become ok with it.
For those that had a scheduled c-section, how did you make it 'ok' in your mind? All I can think about is all the bad things that happened with my emergency c-section, and I know it won't be like that this time, and I am very greatful that my baby is healthy and gorgous, but I just need 'something else' to get my head around this.
Thanks in advance
