Is anyone else having major anxiety at the thought of another C-section?! I have had four surgeries (including my first C-section) by this doctor and I've never had problems-- but I get super anxious when I think about this upcoming procedure! I keep thinking about things that could go wrong. I don't know what my problem is- I've never gone through this before.

I hae never ha a csection but it is one of my greatest fears. I have an online friend who has had 5 csecs and several other abdominal surgeries. She is having her 6th csection last week of august and is very anxious about it. She has begged the docs to just knock her completely out this time but they will not. her fear isn't of the what what ifs but the what she knows. I am sorry you are feeling anxious. Is there anything we can do to help? maybe some good calming music for YOU in the or? Or like a calming oil to rub under your nose?

Aww I am so sorry you are feeling nervous/anxious. This will be a repeat c section for me as well. For me.. I am really calm with this one. I feel like I've been through it before and I know what to expect. I'm not sure why I'm so calm lol

I think I'm more nervous about being a mom to a toddler and a newborn.

I hope that you start feeling better about the delivery! I know it's hard to not think about all the things that could go wrong, just think that right after you can hold your baby!

I am, but I think mines more of my last went to the nicu with fluid on his lungs and it was the longest two days ever, he cam home with me thankfully though. I guess I'm more anxious of that happening again.

I am more anxious about the epdidural/spinal. I am not anxious about the actual c-section or recovery.

I am super anxious about all of it! I am trying for a vbac, but pretty freaked out about how that will go and really hate the idea of having another c-section. I don't even really know why, last time I healed fine.
