    Lol, I booked mine in at 24 weeks at my first Ob app, I wanted to ensure I was first on the list and didn't have to starve.

    I'm having mine first up. That way I can spend the morning recovering and getting to know my baby, then DF will bring DS in so we can have some family time. I'll probably be ok with my mum and MIL coming to visit that night, but no more visitors till the following night!

    thanks for all the great opinions. visitors won't be a problem cause not going to allow any until the next day. if i go early i want to be up and moving with the catheter and everything out by the end of the day. ob says that its routine for this stuff to be removed in the morning so will have to push the nurses to do it in the afternoon.

    Tigerz, as soon as you have full movement in your legs insist on being taken out of bed. It's better for your recovery. I had to wait for a mean/lazy nurse to go off shift before I got a nurse who was happy to get me up. I don't think I would've slept with the canula, catheter and hospital gown all on, I was too awake and uncomfortable from sitting.

    I had first of the day because my OB said that was the best time because unless there's lots of emergencies over night then you won't have to wait long.
    My DH was with me the whole time and slept at the hosp with me as well so made sure I didn't have any visitors till that night which was only our parents. We didn't have bubs with us any way so told ppl no point visiting till we got him back the next day.
    My OB won't let the catheter be taken out for 24 hours no matter what time of day you have your op.
    I had no trouble sleeping with it I didn't feel it at all. Was auctually really nice not to have to get up and pee during the night like I normally have to lol.
    Good luck with what ever you choose. Just make sure you book in as soon as you can so you get the time of day you want

    Mine was kept in 24 hours too on policy. I didn't get legs back until overnight so was happy to have in until the morning. Midwifes got me up ASAP in the shower, walking catheter out

    With my first I had an emergency c-section so ended up having him at 10.57pm. I was exhausted after a 38 hour labour so don't really remember much. So can't say much about late night c-sections.

    With my 2nd DS I was booked in first thing. DH and I had lots of time just the 3 of us then mum and dad brought up DS1 to see me and my sister came and saw me after 3pm. It was nice and will be aiming for that again. I didn't get a choice on when to have my c-section though and guess I won't this time, but since I am going to a small hospital I am guessing it will be early again.

    Eek! Yeah no thanks. Making pregnant women fast is as mean as making pregnant women drink heaps of water & not pee! Who comes up with these ideas!!!

    ATM I have two breakfasts and two lunches!!!! I'd be chewing off my own arm by early afternoon without anything to eat!
