Lori- I think it's definitely PTSD.
Your hubby is verbalizing "his memories" of feeling completely helpless. He probably WAS in the corner of the room away from you. Either bc of shock or bc the medical team was not letting him get close as they rushed to save both of your lives.
As for your body image, it WILL improve. You're in shock. Youve seen your body change with your other pregnancies and births. You KNOW you'll be a smokin' hot momma very soon!
As for the c/s scar- you'd do it over again one million times if it means you get the same healthy baby.remind your mind that! your body was brutally handeled save two lives. It's gonna feel (and look) different. But it WILLget better. You WILL get back to yourself.
In the meantime, anyone who has gone through something this traumatic should find a professional (preferably that specializes in these issues) to speak to. I recommend calling your local level 3 nicu- and asking if they have a psychologist they work with. These professionals hear stories like this every day.
Keep posting. My thoughts are with you.
