Have had a fair bit of struggle this pregnancy with my hips and excruciating pain (plus the prolapse I got from my last fast labour), paired with being on strict bedrest now...the possibility of me getting a c-sect is high.
I have my 36 week hospital appointment on the 26th and will be requesting to have an elective c-section due to my prolapse and bladder issues from my last labour, my pelvis and hip pain that have been causing me vomiting, the runs and anxiety and panic attacks.I've had a scan and bub is measuring at least 1.5 weeks ahead.
I'm a bit scared about the prospect of having a c-section and have not taken this decision lightly as I really wanted all natural no drug approach...but my body is really not coping at all (hence the strict bed rest).
Since c-sections haven't been big in my family I was wondering if anyone would be able to provide me ANY information about what I can expect on the day, during the c-section, after the c-section, recovery, will I still be able to do the immediate skin to skin contact/feed once bub is out....or will I have to wait...who can be in the room...what the needle feels like :-S ANYTHING really.
Thank you so much for your help...I would like to make this experience pleasurable for myself and my partner...and our 3 year old daughter.
