Big news: The baby is coming early!

My baby is due Feb.12th, but after my Dr.
appointment this morning discussing the birth,I
am having a c-section now scheduled Feb.
4th due to my Dr. And I's concern due to some
Previous surgery I had and how that can affect a
Normal vaginal birth. So looks like the baby is coming
Earlier than expected, the day of the c-section is
On my brother's b-day so I don't know how he is going
To feel sharing his b-day now with the new baby, lol. My Dr.
told me I will be hospitalized 1 or 2 days, but that is normal
(even for a normal birth). The only thing I am worried about is
That nasty needle (not an epidural but very similar) that will be
inserted into my back and the fact I will be awake when they
Are digging the baby out! EW!

I'm just ready to get it over with, but I am nervous as can be!

It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

I though you were in labor now when I saw the title! I always thought it would be nice to have it schedualed so that you would know exactly when baby was coming!!

All WILL go well, and it will be alot less painful that way, or so I hear.

Good luck!

You will do just fine. The epidural are not bad at all. I had 2 done with my reconstructive surgeries and they were both just fine.
Congrats on the baby

Thank you for the reassurance, the epidural is what I'm most worried
About- I have a needle phobia!

Congrats!

My mom has given a birth both me and my older sister with c-section. I don't know about my sister but my mom has told that she was awake when I bornt. And she's still here and doing well . I'm sure that everything will go well with you too!

Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
