Hey Martha... I have never been pregnant or have had a C-section (duh) but my mom told me something I always remembered, she had two of them. She said the biggest difference for her from the first on to the second, was with the first one she was in pain after and didn't move a lot... She said with the second one she was up and moving very shortly after, which made the healing easier... good luck with everything!!!

Hey Martha!

Noah is going to born on Maddie's Due date! Yay! I always thought Dr predictions about weight/size were usually unreliable this late in your pregnancy. Was he always measuring a big baby? Well regardless, you're going to be just fine. I too would much rather be scheduled than labor forever and have to have an unscheduled one (my biggest fear).

 

I can't wait to hear about little Noah's big debut into the world. I'm very excited for you and Jay... and your little miracle baby.

 

All the girls are right.. move around as soon as they let you and when they offer you drugs for recovery, inform them you'll be breast feeding (if you are) so they make sure they're safe, but take them!

Martha I had a scheduled c-section too, it is painful but it;s great being scheduled and not having to worry about when he's going to come out.. I don't have any advise because I didn't follow the advise they gave me (basically the secret is moving but I was in a lot of pain and didn't want to stand).. but you may know that the pain lasts 1 or 2 days and you have the rest of your life to hold your little Noah! keep that in mind and you'll feel better,.

I have to agree on dr predictions, was your dr always measuring a big baby? My doctor said ours would be around 7 lbs and probably 19-20 inches, and she was 8lbs 11oz and 22.5 inches....

Maddie is still on the inside. No predictions from my Dr.. and I'm glad because it would just be one more thing keeping me up at night! :) I always thought a good indicator is if big babies run in the family. I was small and so was my husband (we still are, height-wise anyhow!)

Hey Martha,

 

I personally dont have any children but, a very close friend of mine had her little girl via a semi-emergency C-Section. She was in labor most of the day and just couldn't push her out so her doctor decided on a C-Section last minute. She says it was great because (and these are her words) her cooch stayed in tact! :) LOL

 

She's a tropper and was "running" around by the time she got home 5 days later and said that she loved the morphine drip while at the hospital. When I asked her if she would have her second naturally, given the choice, she said: NO Way. She said that a scheduled C-Section would be the only way the would deliver again. You dont have to wake up in the middle of the night with contractions or worry that you will go into labor at work or worse and your chooch stays in tact! :) LOL

 

I hope this brings your mind at ease at least a little bit and we all can't wait to meet Noah!!! smile02.gif
