    Kristy I'm sorry you're feeling a bit scared. I didn't have a c-section but bub was posterior and I had him naturally. I'm not sure whether he was engaged or not because I had him at 35 + 2. Everything is so unknown but in the moment all you'll really care about is that bubs and you are safe and healthy. It won't matter how bub got here. It's not clutching at straws to have hope either but maybe try researching positive c-sections so you can work up to it. Do you have any reason to believe your OB would want you to have a c-section if you and bub didn't need one?

    Default IVF Babies Due August/Sept/Oct'16#3

    Thanks for the replies ladies x

    No @Peedypie all we have ever discussed is a vaginal delivery so I am confident she is advising me what is best for us both.
    It is just so not what I had planned or hoped for and am scared about not really being present in the moment, no skin to skin immediately afterwards, delay in breast feeding, recovery etc...
    @ttc1981 that gives me hope x

    Kristy the best thing about a planned section is that you will get all these things you're wanting. You will have a spinal so you will feel and hear everything that happens. You will get skin to skin and as long as Bub is healthy they will go straight on the boob. Exactly as if you had him naturally. If, however, you attempt to labour and Bub goes into distress and you end up having an emergency section then your likelihood of getting all of these things decreases.
    I was up and walking the next day, and felt basically normal within a week. I'm now 7w pp and feel fantastic (and have done for weeks now). My scar has been healed for weeks and it's clean, neat and discreet.

    Any questions speak up we are here to help!!

    @Kristyj I was in a very similar position to you. I really wanted a natural birth, but with my big baby, who went posterior at the last minute, hadn't engaged by 41 weeks, no change in the cervix, my symphysitis etc, my OB told me the same thing, natural childbirth was unlikely to be successful. But I can assure you, my c-s was a beautiful, peaceful experience. Everyone in the theatre was calm and gentle, I spoke to my husband and held his hand while it was happening, and then we heard this little baby gurgle from the other side of the sheet and our lives changed forever! I got her immediately, lots of skin to skin and then up to the post-natal ward. Honestly, the most unpleasant part was when they washed my bits before putting a catheter in - now that was a weird sensation! But I was so scared going in, and had a really lovely experience. I would recommend it to anyone whose been having medical issues that cause anxiety in pregnancy. I'm two weeks post-partum now and almost back to myself . So don't worry - you'll have your baby soon!

    Kristy i had an emergency c for my first pregnancy it was fine i didnt go into labour due to pre eclampsia they called it a cat 2 c and took me straight in. I was awake and coherent and knew exactly what was going on. Baby was given straight to me in recovery and was put straight on boob. As i didnt labour first my recovery was great 3 years on you cant even see my scar to thw point when i get scans and they check my scar it takes them forever to try locate as its practically non existent. I had him at 7pm the following morning about 6am i had my catheter removed and i was up walking around i was in hospital 3 days.

    I hear a scheduled csect is much better than labouring first and ending up with a csect. Im sure you will be fine x

    Labour rarely goes how we would like it to anyways. I had a vaginal delivery but couldn't do skin to skin until the next day. I was disappointed initially but 4 weeks in I don't even think about it. I have my baby boy and he is healthy and getting chubby.

    You'll do great!

    I was thinking today that at some point I'm going to have to wear actual pants instead of my maternity leggings. None of my pre-baby clothes fit. They're all too big although the way I've been eating since I had bub, maybe not for long! Haha! My jelly belly is even smaller than my pre-baby belly.

    @hermia: yes! Being prepared for the catheter felt so weird for me too! I could not feel the catheter of course, just being washed down for it
    I was up the same day and would go for a scheduled C section again any day. @Peedypie: you are lucky! I'm back to pre baby weight but not shape and breast feeding is making me crave sugary junk...
