Okay so I have polyhydramnios (high fluid) and gestational diabetes and supposedly a 9+ pound baby. They have a C-section scheduled on Wednesday (the day I hit 37 weeks) and I've had to VB's before but never a c sec. I was thinking "no big deal I've had 3 abdominal surgeries before how bad could it be" and now my friend (who's had a c sec) is telling me that it's nothing like a laproscopic procedure and it's the worst thing ever! Now I'm terrified and my mind is racing. I had just always assumed that the pain from a larger incision was comparable to the pain from having your abdomen inflated with CO2 and bruising your diaphram. Is a c section really that bad? I'm afraid to throw up because when I do it all comes out my nose and my friend is saying everyone throws up from them tugging around. Idk what to believe but now I'm due to have one in less than 2 days and I'm really scared. I heard the recovery is absolutely horrible too. Please if you've had a c section can you tell me how it went? Did you throw up? Did it hurt like hell afterwards? How long was your recovery?
