    I had a nasty cough ( coughs and cs do not mix) and a cold when i had my last son.. My DH also had a nasty throat infection which luckily he went to the Drs about cus he was anti biotics for it. Apparently he wouldn't have been allowed in otherwise

    anyways.. The only adivce I can give is rest rest rest and if you have a cough hold a pillow to your tummy after the c/s... each time you cough

    Good luck

    I asked the surgeon about this prior to my CS as I too was coming down with something. Basically you would have to be terribly unwell with a bacterial infection before they would think about postponing. I too was worried about coughing - however I have since found out that codeine is an effective cough suppressant so if you are coughing afterwards ask about adding codeine to your pain relief options. As it turns out I was worried for nothing and actually felt quite well on the day.

    Good luck, enjoy meeting your new little one - every blessing for your birthing time.
