    Default Today is the day!!!!!!

    Today is the day I give birth to our first born via c-sect!!!

    I'm tripping out. I was so calm yesterday, even had a good night sleep.... Now I'm getting nervous ... I don't really know why...?

    Any tips on staying calm?!

    Wow - congratulations!!

    I don't think I have any great tips, as I was terrified on the day of my C/S, but it was very quick and easy, and afterwards I thought "I won't be scared if I have another one" - but now I probably still would be!

    I think the best thing is just to focus on meeting your new baby, and 'choose' to interpret any butterflies as excitement rather than fear.

    Good luck What a magical day!

    I just tried to pretend it was another day for as long as possible...

    Good luck today, the worst part of the whole thing was taking the medicine before it. Think like an aspro clear and then about 10ml of something else. I am a massive sook in that department, so really, its really not bad...

    Oh and the other sucky thing was repeating my story to about 40 people. I was like seriously, just get this baby out of me already

    Its pretty exciting! Good luck with it all!

    Thanks.... I go up to the hospital at one, and the surgery is booked for 4... (unless they are running early or late or what ever)

    I think it is excitement.. Or.. I really don't know how to word it...!

    I have been so "meh" with it up until now.. I really thought it would be fine lol.

    Maybe it's more nerves like... Omg in a few hours I'm going to have a child!!!!!!!!! Like, I am as prepared as I will ever be, but.. At the same time I feel so unprepared!!!! Wahhh it's a spin out!
