I'm pregnant with my first baby, and was wanting to have a vaginal delivery since day 1. Unfortunately, my placenta is way to close to my cervix, so my doctor told me I have to have a c-section in which i'm scheduled for on August 1st. I'm so scared!! If there is any advice any of you ladies can give me, I feel that would help so much. Everyone I know has had a vaginal birth so they can't really relate. Also what should I pack in my hospital bag?
Thank you :)

I had to have a c-section. It wasn't too bad. For me I had to sleep in the recliner that way I could get up easily. You won't be able to drink soda for a few weeks or drive a car. Healing time is longer for a c-section that vaginal birth, but nothing too bad.

Both of my kids were c -section births. I thought it was fine. I was up and walking by the next day. They give you pain meds, so there is no need to suffer. You also have a good excuse for your DH to wait on you hand and foot.

My 20 yr old daughter acts pissed off all the time.
