    Good Luck for tomorrrow

    I have had 2 c/s and the biggest advice I can offer is remember to breathe when they stand you up for the first time.. I wish I had known first time round just how much that first time standing hurts. I coped alot better 2nd time round knowing what I was in for and I swear it hurt less mainly cis I knew what was coming

    Hey Girls,
    havent posted my announcement yet but just wanted to let you know that it went really really well and I now have a beautiful girl, Sari Anne. Due to the breech positioning she did have one foot and knee at a funny angle but it seems to have corrected itself and we are getting it double checked at the childrens hospital this week. The peadatrician (sp?) said he was 99% sure all was ok now though.

    As for the c-sect, they left the epidual line in and connected pethadine that I could self administer every fifteen minutes if I wanted and I can tell you that I felt next to now discomfort for the first few days and was out of bed by the next morning and showered and feeling great. The midwives couldnt believe how quick I was recovering. So I must say, if you are going to or must have a c/s, go in with the most positive attitude you can and you will be fine!! After I got them to take out the epidural as it was starting to hit a nerve, I was just on panadene for a 1.5 days and then panadol every four hours with on antiinflamitory with lunch. The only sore thing I have now is my nipples ooooowwww LOL will get used to that though I am sure.

    Thanks again for all your advice ladies. I must say the pad across the top of the undies to protect your wound...great idea!!

    Love Nets xxx
    PS must change my signature bit!
