Posted this in two spots as wasnt sure where gets read more, so if you see it twice sorry :s
Hope this isn't a tmi type question, but I am having our first baby by Caesarian in 4 weeks, I asked lots of questions with my OB but still have some more.
How much vaginal bleeding can I expect after my caesar? I will be having a spinal block and urinary catheter, so I am wondering what happens post surgery as I will still be numb, do they put a big pad under you for the bleeding (as I am guessing no underwear on while the catheter is in), until you are mobile and can look after it yourself? Anyone's insight would be great, I am a type who likes to know what to expect, as I have quite some anxiety over the Caesarian but know its the safest option for me and bub, but want to be prepared for what's to come! Any advice would be great, thanks xx
