I am so excited for my babe to finally be here but I am scared of surgery...Last time was an emergency so I was just rushed right into it but I feel weird knowing that I am going in for it this time...<br><br>
Just wanted to share and ask for thoughts and prayers....<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Do you live in my town? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I will be thinking of you tomorrow morning. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> My first was a planned c/s due to breech presentation. It is odd to know ahead of time, but it does allow you to be somewhat calm and relaxed going in. I would think you'll feel a little more in control. (something you may desperately need if you have had your birth choices taken away from you as I did) Mine is Wednesday at 7:30am and I was actually a touch scared to post about it.

I'll join in with you and nitareality. Mine is scheduled for Wednesday at 9 AM. I feel the same way that you do *andflipping*. I'm okay with the c/s, but I'm scared knowing what I'm going in for. Just about everyone I know that has had a scheduled second plus c/s says it is SO much easier than having labored for many hours before hand. My main thing is that I hate the hospital and don't want to be away from home for as long as I will be (doc says probably 3 nights! UGH!)<br><br>
Just think, at least we're in this boat together and can share our stories after/while we're holding our little bundles. I'm excited and totally freaked out at the same time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Oh mama, good luck to you. It really doesn't matter how baby gets here as long as he/she is healthy. You'll both come through the surgery fine I'm sure, and look what you'll have to look forward to when you do!<br><br>
Love,<br>
Cindy

Hugs and prayers to all the CS mamas!<br><br>
In getting ready for what is essentially my first labor, I've read a ton of birth stories and there are some really nice CS ones, if you want something to put you at ease.<br><br>
For me, a VBAC is an option, but now that the "post EDD" clock is ticking, I thought to myself..."I definitely can see the benefit of KNOWING when the babe will come <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Take good care
