    I'll be having my 3rd c section with this bub. My friends and family know that so I can't imagine keeping the date a secret.

    When they ask when I am booked in I'm not going to be dishonest about the date.

    I wouldn't appreciate it if one of my close friends or a family member such as my sister, lied about the date or was deliberately evasive.

    Each to their own.

    Thanks for the tip about constipation i would really like to avoid that!

    I think I will tell everyone from now on that the date is a surprise and they will have to wait and see.
    Buzz them in everytime you would have asked your DH to get up and tend to baby, easy
    I know in my private hospital I leaned a lot on midwives for post birth support. They're here for that :-)

    Constipation wise, extra fiber is a great advise for anyone just having a baby (vag or CS birth).
    My hospital would offer fiber in the form of gelly, works a treat!

    I only told those who it was necessary for them to know. I told a fake date to one family member because I knew they'd be there the second bub was born and I didn't want that due to knowing I would have a complicated delivery.

    Day 2 night pain was far worse for me. What the nurses fail to tell you before hand is you need to fart. Charming I know, my pain was because I wasn't passing gas. After all that work inside your tummy, apparently you need to fart it out??! Pain was much less afterwards.

    If I'm blessed with a second bub, I'd do the same again, only tell those that need to know, and when asked tell them a rough estimate of the week. I just told people bub would arrive sometime in a two week period, depending on the doctors schedule. They seemed to believe me, certainly no one questioned me on it.
