  • I will most likely have to have another c sec. I am not really scared cause my first one went well. Are you afraid because your first one didn't go too well?

  • It will be a little harder and take a little longer for the docs to reach the baby because of scar tissue.

  • Yeah, I went into labor at 33 weeks and the whole thing was just scary

  • I've had 5. I was nervous with each one but not really scared.
    And my 5th was the quickest and easiest of them all. They were in and out and did a tubal in less than 30 minutes with stapling up and everything. It took the longest just to get the baby out (with a vacuum and the nurse jumping on me).

  • I had 3 c-sections. Yeah, of course one gets a little nervous. It is major surgery. But, it's the only major surgery you get something AWESOME from! No other one can you leave with a beautiful new baby. Best wishes to you, hope all goes well for you and your little one!

  • It's normal to be nervous.
    I had 2, & there was only a length of time diff coz my first was moved up so he could do me on his lunch hour from the ofc, or I would have had to wait til what turned out to be 10 hrs later! (I was sched coz I had a breech, but the doc was covering the laboring moms at another hosp as well.)
    So, if you had the 1st one after hrs of laboring & then a mad rush to get the babe out, be assured it's not so nerve-wracking w/ a repeat. They will go thru things w/ you about what they are doing to reassure you, & your DH can be w/ you most likely for nearly the entire thing.
    The recovery after a sched instead of emerg C/S is much easier too!

  • I've had three. The second was easier than the first becuase the first was an emergency. The second, I also knew what to expect. For me the third was the easiest recovery, but the second wasn't too bad. Good luck. Try not to worry. It will be okay!
