My first baby was a very medicated vaginal delivery. I waited 6 years for my second pregnancy. Very healthy pregnancy, only gained 27 lbs (daddy gained 40!!) and no major concerns. An old lady told…Continue

Did you have a difficult recovery from your C-section? Here are 10 tips for healing both mind and body from the trauma of this major surgery!
DHessRN, I would feel the same way. Don't beat yourself up over something that was completely out of your control! Soon you'll be back on your feet being active and caring for your children 24/7. You need to take this time to heal and take care of yourself so you are ready physically and emotionally to care for yourself and your family. I know it seems like a long time but just keep it in perspective, six to eight weeks is not a long time in the grand scheme of your life as a parent and soon you'll be up and yourself again. Just try to rest and focus on yourself, and be thankful that you have such a great support system to lean on. We're here for you if you need us!
hey xoxo.. my daughter was born dec 3 and I had a csection that got infected 2 weeks later. I had sever ppd with my 3 yr old son. this time my partner is much more supportive and im handling this time better but im def still struggling to stay happy and positive again. mostly bc I am pretty much on bedrest 6-8 wks until my huge wound heals. im usually very buissy, like to keep house perfect, go to gym, get dolled up ect.. I feel useless, bored, and afraid ill have massive ugly scar tissue. I feel lonely. I feel guilty my acive toddler has to go to my moms all day bc I cant keep up with him. I feel sad my hubby works, cooks, cleans, pick up n drop off son and wake up all night to get me the baby, diapers n bottles I want to help..
I went in and out of labor for 4 days. Dr told me that if it started again to get to the hospital, but she wouldnt be able to get there that exact night. I went between regular and back labor that night 2-3 minutes apart so we headed to the hospital. The Dr that night never came to see me until the morning after it had stopped again. I had made no progress so he sent me home with a healthy dose of basically calling me dumb. He was positive it was just Braxton Hicks. No one told my Dr that I had been in so when I saw her and let her know almost a week later she was appalled. A few minutes of feeling around and she determined that my sons head was sitting on top of my pubic bone therefore he wasn't dropping or able to help me dilate more. I hadn't had any contractions since that night, almost like he gave up. We went through non-stress testing and had a sizing ultrasound. Dr deemed him Hulk Baby because from his last ultrasound 3 weeks earlier he had gained 4lbs! Scheduled a c-section for the next day at noon and everything went smoothly even though I had been in labor all night! At least for the next baby I know that my pain tolerance for labor is very high. Anyone else get the low bikini incision? Supposedly you can have a vaginal delivery after this kind?
Would you tweet your C-section live? One mom did: http://www.mom365.com/PREGNANCY/Posts/2013/Feb/CsectionTweetedLiveC...
My water broke at 8:30 am without contractions. I went to the hospital and they induced me. I was told I had 24 hours to deliver or I would have to have a c-section because of increased risk of infection. Thanks to 3 emergency c-sections going on, I labored for 28 hours...my contractions just stopped. I begged my doctor to let me push anyways. I pushed for an hour (he used the vacuum twice) with no luck. I was rolled into the ER bawling because this wasn't how it was supposed to be. I hate my c-section...I hated the birth (if you can call it that)....I hate that it feels like someone just gave me a child instead of it feeling like he was mine. I hate that I had to deal with not only healing from a C-Section but also the normal healing from a vaginal delivery as well (we could get him to crown but with no contractions to keep him down he got stuck).
So my neighbor is going to try for a VBAC! She's a brave one to change her plan so last minute. I will let you know how it goes for her!
