    Could a friend come to hospy and play with DS while u r in surgery with DH?

    If there was absolutely no one else to watch DS then i would have DH & DS up at the hospital and with me prior to and straight after surgery.

    I can understand the concern of your new born getting sick as it could be potentially life threatening to a new bub and if I was in that position my decision would be to go it alone for the health of my baby. It would be scary though so maybe look into some childcare agencies or maybe your mum has a friend who can do it.

    If i thought that what my mum had was seriously going to be a high potential to catch, i'd personally either get Dh to look after DS at home and come up pretty much straight away Or I'd look at getting a paid babysitter to look after him for a few hours. I would have no problems having a c-sect by myself. I had one with DS and DH didn't come into theatre with me.

    Can someone else go in with you? My cousin was my support but nearly missed it anyway.

    Hey just thought u would up date as tomorrow is the big day!

    My mum saw her doc today and was advised to stay away from DS as she has a bad chest infection and is still really sick and contagious.
    I have friends who could look after DS but they have young kids of their own and DS has never stayed with them so would cry the whole time and I'd be stressing.

    We have decided to get DHs parents to stay at our house tonight and take DS to work with them tomorrow morning. As soon as I have had the caesar and am back in my room with DD my DH will go get DS. I'm first on the list for surgery and have to be there at 6am so DS shouldn't have to be at the inlaws work for more then 2 hours.

    It's not an ideal situation but at least I'm not having major surgery without DH for support.

    Thanks so much for all your replies they all really helped

    Glad you've sorted it out and that DH will be with you. My DH has been such an important part of all my caesars, I don't know what I would have done without him!

    Best wishes tomorrow

    Yeh I don't think he realized how important it was to me to have him there. I'm freaking out about the spinal and couldn't do it without him, no one else could replace him.
    Thanks again
