    Default c-section tomorrow, feeling physically sick just thinking about it...

    so I'm scheduled for a c-section tomorrow, I have to be at the hospital at 11.30am, I've had two vaginal births and this will be my first c-section, I'm so scared and nervous and feel physically sick just thinking about it

    Oh yay !! A huge congrats

    You'll be fine

    I've had an elective c section and it was fine. I was worried too but I think it was just a fear of the unknown.

    it can be a little overwhelming. I've had 2. An emergency with DS and elective with DD. DS's was a little scary, but DD's was calm. I recovered well both times.

    Just take it easy and don't overdo it and you should be fine. And on the bright side, you will get to meet your bubba.

    Good luck!! Make sure you take your camera- the theatre staff are usually pretty at good at taking photos. If your into birth photos that is.

    I've had 3 CS. Loved everyone of them. Don't be scared to ask anything.

    Best wishes

    Oh don't be scared! Mine was FABULOUS! Can't speak highly of it enough.

    Yes you will be sore the next day, but just say yes to pain killers and a week later you will be much better.

    Soon you will be cuddling your bubba!!

    Good luck for tomorrow.
    I have had 2. Emergency with dd1 and elective with dd2.
    It's only my experience, but I felt really weird having the elective. It felt like ordering a baby or something. I was just sitting in the bed thinking ok is it my turn. Sorry its hard to describe. Once baby was born and we were back in our room then it just felt 'normal'.
    I hope it all goes well for you and try to enjoy your last night of pregnancy.

    I cant imagine how scared you would be and I havent been in your position but my sister had her elective caeserian just last week and she was absolutley terrified. She worried herself sick and turns out she had a beautiful delivery and there was nothing scary about it Just think you will be definitley holding your beautiful little girl by tomorrow afternoon! Whenever you are feeling scared just picture your little girl and what she might look like and what she will be like and all the beautiful little newborn cuddles. I also agree with pp in using tonight as a great excuse to relax with a nice bath and then movie with your piggiest snack! Good luck!
