Pilbara. I've been kinda terrified these past few days at the prospect that my baby will be here soon! But today I've woken up excited! As far as the c section goes. ... more at peace with the whole thing now after much research and also hearing friends who have sometimes had as much recovery time after a natural birth due to 4 th degree tears and surgery anyway. You just never know how it's gonna go and what your birth story will be at the end of the day, we want a healthy Bub and healthy mumma.
