Nervous about upcoming C-section :-(
I found out today that I'm having a C-section due to medical necessity. I won't go into the medical necessity portion because it'll take away from this post...BUT I'm bummed, a little anxious, and relieved at the same time. I'm bummed because I was looking forward to hypnobirthing and feeling somewhat robbed of the experience. I'm anxious because I have a fear about being cut open and having surgical instruments left inside of me AND possibly feeling being cut open. I'm relieved that I didn't spend the money to learn about breathing techniques, etc because it would've upset me that I spent money that I didn't really have on something I can't use (at this time).
Trying to feel positive about the C-section. Can you please help me make a list so I can meditate on this. So far I have: baby's head won't be cone shaped and she'll look absolutely beautiful, bypassing long labor hours, not having to deal with the unknown of how long labor will be, my vagina won't hurt.
Which of you have had a C-section? What was your experience like? Were you nervous, scared?
It was not bad that you won't need to deal to push baby out of your vagina. It is faster to get baby out of your womb. It takes doctor around 10 mins to get her/him out, but it MAY cause you feel nauseous due to move a lot (the doctor may try to get baby out from your womb even though you won't feel pain at all). After the c section is done and you'll feel sore and it takes longer to heal than women who had natural birth.
Hope I help you a bit to make you feel little better a bit!
