I am scheduled to have a c-section 12/15 and have a 2-1/2 and 13 year-old already. How to cope/enjoy it? Also, my husband wants to know what I want for Christmas. I can't imagine since I will still be recovering from surgery and sleep deprived. Any experience is appreciated.Answer Question

I've never had a c-section myself. But I can tell you that any kind of help that family and friends can provide for the first week would be great. Even if they took turns every other day dealing with the kids. Maybe dropping a covered dish would help with dinner. Don't be afraid to ask for the help or accept it if someone volunteers to do something for you.
And you can also plan ahead too. Make enough meals for the family for a week and freeze them in individual portions. That way you teen can reheat them after school. Find out from the doc about a bodysuit for more abdominal support to aide in healing (so I've been told).

To anon "easy - stop celebrating that holiday," Are you serious?? She has every right to celebrate whatever she chooses.
Her question was concerning enjoying and coping with surgery. If someone can help you out for a few hours during the day that would at least buy you a quick nap. Even if they can mind the 2 year old for you, it will help. But don't stress over it. Everything always has a way of working out.
