    That's exciting KJ! I too feel anxious about the csection. More recovery then the actual process.
    I love the movements too, even when they get a bit painful. DH said to me last night that he can't believe we will be parents in 18 days. It just hit me and I cried! I get moments when everything just dawns on me that a human being is almost ready to join the world.

    I've been the same Riss, we've been on countdown for so long now and we both have this surreal moments of we are going to be finally parents of this little human being we've made...it's so emotional and to think with everything us IVF ladies have been through it's been years or months of lots of emotional ups and downs and finally we have our miracles I don't think I'll stop crying tomorrow, I'm tearing up now

    Arr! KJ!!! Tomorrow!!! That is so exciting!! Mine is booked for 13th unless bubby sorts himself out and turns. It's only just starting to hit me what it means in terms of recovery etc. I am scared of surgery generally (like I'm sure most people are) but had a weird moment the other night when I actually thought about it and having a wound and scar etc. I have since been looking up tips for a good recovery. Best things I've seen are tube grip for the tummy or alternatively src recovery shorts (support to minimize pressure to overuse abs while muscles knit), high cut knickers (got me some cottontails), and wearing a sanitary pad over the incision area as padding from clothing etc. ooh, and being as active as possible... Ill be thinking of you and looking out for your news!!! Then it's me and Riss- anyone else booked for Caesarian?

    Berra my c-section recovery was basically as good as anyone could hope for and I didn't need any of the things you mentioned. It's good to be prepared, but please don't worry too much about having a wound and scar - you'll be so wrapped up in that gorgeous baby you'll probably hardly think about it

    Congratulations Catlover, can't wait to see a picture! Love the name! Hope you have a quick recovery.
    AFM I've been reading but found it hard to write. My little one has been going through an unsettled phase at the moment. I'm spending a lot of time feeding, settling, walking the streets with the pram... I'm pretty tired!

    I agree with Arlais, Berra. I was fine the next morning, got up and showered myself. It's only now that I'm having a problem

    Hi ladies, my routine appt with the anaesthetist yesterday ended up with me being admitted then & there with high blood pressure, possible pre-eclampsia... It's been touch & go right up til about an hour ago, but my ob has decided to leave it for tomorrow morning. Baby is still breech so my body is being completely unreliable.

    Good luck tomorrow KJ, tomorrow we become mumma's!!!

    Oh no STC - at least you are in the best place and they got onto it early.

    Ngaiz - what is wrong with your C section? I tried to look at previous posts but couldn't see anything.

    Catlover congrats ! What a beautiful name your little one has. Good you are recovering well !

    Ngaiz - have you had your tummy looked at? Hope it was just a small passing tender moment.

    KJ really excited for you! I know how impatient you have been ! Send you a pm.

    STc - hope you are doing fine and looking forward to reading your good news here soon!

    Berra my OB suggested to use a light pad over the incision after he took the dressing out but in my case I have been bleeding and having pus weeping. Also I guess the supportive shorts or girdle wld be helpful but I can't imagine pulling it past my incision in the early days.

    I know we are told to be active and while I cldnt do much in the beginning I have been active with domestics again light but iam not sure if it is actually back firing in my case. So I was stinging and hurting in my incision on the other side yest so dh looked guess what little bit of blood n pus and seems like an open stitch too! So both sides now! And also very tender just above the incision. I have a friend who just had surgery cause she had big painful red lumps on her scar. This is one year after her csection - yep her bub just turned 1 mummy needed keyhole surgery !

    Ok now I feel bad writing the above! So ladies who are yet to go just remember iam only one out of several ladies here whose had it hard for the csection. Fortunately most ladies fared quite well. In the end the grand prize is worth it though ! No pain no gain! Incision will heal over time and soon I will forget the pain but I now have my little miracle ! Also I have a friend whose had 3 csection and she said she hardly had any pain ! So there you go! ( although I did give her a are you for real look! )
