Terrified

I am 11 weeks pregnant. This will be my 4th csection. And I am terrified something is going happen to me during the birth. I had complications during my last csection. It was my drs fault.

I think about something happening to me and I just want to cry. I don't want my babies to go through that. I lost both my parents young and that's something I never want them to have to go through. It's horrible. I just can't stop thinking about it.

Part of me wishes I never got pregnant (this pregnancy wasn't planned )

I am just terrified and I don't know what to do to ease my fears.

Is a vaginal birth out of the question for you?

I have had 3 csections already. I don't think they would allow me to give birth vaginally

(((hugs))

May I ask what happened to you during your C section that scared you so much?

It'snormal to worry, but I'm sure you'll be just fine. Enjoy your pregnancy!

How long have you been having these feelings?  Could it just be hormonal and pass or is it constant.  Maybe you need to talk to someone about it.  Even talking to your dh or a close friend would ease your fears.  Sorry your feeling that way though.  I felt the same towards the end of my pregnancy when I was having issues.  I'm very happy to say everything turned out well.

It is still possible. In recent years the belief that a woman who has had csections in the past  can't deliver vaginally has changed.  I would talk to your doctor about it.  Why did you have the other ones?

My first csection was because baby was brow down and I wasn't dilating. I was 18 and didn't really think everything through. The other two were just repeats. I was encouraged by my Dr with my second to do a vbac because he said I was a good candidate. But at the time I was in a controlling relationship and I listened to ex and switched drs. (Dumb on my part)

I had that same fear too. I just had my 5th c-section one year ago and everything was fine. Good luck! :)

I have them on and off. Last time was before I was pregnant and I talked to my sister about it. But tonight I just can't stop thinking about it.
