I know Caryn its great! My BP is ok but they told me they were not taking me past 39. The only thing to change it would be PE. All else seems ok! I can hardly believe it!

Su, I am just so thrilled that the only thing you're really worried about right now is that your little stinker is breech. :-)

I'm glad he could offer you some calming information! That's funny about Macbeth - "not of woman born" LOL. I've actually thought about that plot line several times having two section kids myself. You'll do perfectly - and so will your stubborn little boy! :)

oh, i missed your post! Congrats on a date!!! That is so just around the corner! Before you know it you will be bringing baby home! You will be fine on the section, i know its scary, but seriously 5 mins into it you will hear him cry and your heart will be so filled with emotion, that the surgery part will not be on your mind anymore. The longest part of the surgery is the part after the baby is out, so you will be preoccupied for that part!

i cant wait for you!

C-sections aren't fun when you compare them to vaginal recoveries but anything to get that baby here!!!

I am so excited for you!!

April 22nd is a great day IMHO, it is my birthday and it is EARTH DAY! How cool is that! The anticipation of the c-section and recovery from it are far worse than the reality, you will do great!

How exciting that you have a date!! And 36 weeks this week? Wow.

I don't know anything about c-sects, but I hope your recovery is quick and easy. From what I've read from other c-sect moms, the most important thing is to "stay ahead of the pain"-- don't be afraid to take the pain meds the docs prescribe you.

Just a few more weeks and we'll be reading about Samar's birth and seeing photos-- I can't wait!
