      Good luck Cheyenne!!

      Sheila had great advice!

      I would like to add that sometimes the schedule might change, if an emergency comes up your c-section might be an hour or two later. It will be cold in the operating room, make sure you are wearing socks and don't be afraid to ask for a warm blanket. You will feel tugging, pressure and might feel short of breath. You will have a catheter in place for urination. Keep taking your pain meds, even if you don't feel much pain.
