cesarean section !
Well I'm now 37wk 3days and my little guy is BREECH sadly. My last appointment I was 3.5cm dilated si my doc scheduled my csection for next week and im terrified since this is my first surgery ever. Any tips or advice on recovery, breastfeeding afterwards, and anything that is helpful? Thanks
I kept our son in his pack and play right next to our bed so I could reach him or because it was so much easier I kept him on the bed with me. I watched a lot of TV since I couldn't go anywhere or do anything.
enjoy your baby take lots of pictures cause in a single week they will change so fast.
Always ask for help. Dont stress about anything. Sleep when baby sleeps, Love your baby. Pictures, Let daddy hold the baby ;)
Also when you can keep up posted on how your doing let us know if you need more tips or to vent or cry. you will be on a emotional roller coaster Its okay to cry for no reason.
Good luck Momma. Dont worry and remember to ask questions :)
Here's a little foresight into what you may experience: They will strap your arms down and numb you from your neck down. They will most likely give you an oxygen mask as well. They will also put up a curtain so you cannot see what they are doing. You will feel pressure, but no pain. They may push really hard on your stomach to push him closer to the incision, if necessary. When they did it to me, it knocked the air out of me! When they pull the baby out, you will probably get to see him briefly before they take him away to be cleaned up and weighed and measured. While your baby is gone, they will close up your incision, unstrap you, and move you onto a bed. They will record more information and you will get to rest for a bit before they bring your son in to you to bond and nurse. And then they will let you have visitors, if you permit it. They will probably keep you hospitalized for a couple of days before releasing you.
If you get over whelmed with visiters ask the nurses if they have a code word and they will indirectly let everyone know that you are going to rest now or you are going to feed the baby and need some privacy. My code words were "Can I have some juice please" and the nurse would go get me some juice and come back and then ask everyone to leave. I was in the hopsital for 5 days and we have visitors everyday almost all day even when I was in labor I had visitors. That's when I didnt want visitors.
