I didn't exactly have the best experience bringing my boy into the world, early on I had a bit of morning sickness, but I could handle that, it was at 32 week's I found out I had gestational diabetes, which was quite a shock! I managed to deal with that through diet, and it was decided that I would be taken in to be induced at 39 week's!
Being induced didn't work for me, and it didn't help that when I was on the hormone drip, the midwife thought she broke my waters, which she hadn't, no wonder I wasn't dialating. So after the Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday staying in hospital, I was finally given a c section, in the early hours of the Monday morning! The actual operation was fascinating! Everyone was so efficient and this was reassuring for me! I was quite calm anyways, you sort of prepare yourself for these sort of situations when pregnant! I think you need to! I still got skin to skin asap, and will never forget his face when he was first born! And that cry! A tear rolled down my cheek along with a huge grin! I remember saying to my mum that his cry was the best sound ever!
Anyways, I'm waffling! My point is, even after going through quite a bit bringing my beautiful boy into the world, I would do it all again! I love my c section scar, it tells a story! I look at it, then look at my boy, and wonder how he ever fitted through that little slit! I was lucky, I healed relatively quickly, with no complications! He's 18-19 weeks, and is doing brilliantly! Such a happy boy! I wouldn't get pregnant now anyways, my body needs a rest, but I do want another! I need to also let the other half come round to the idea lol anyone have any experience in conceiving after a c section? How long after giving birth did you fall pregnant? How long were you trying for before conceiving after c section? And what was the birth like?
See, I'm not thinking about it too much lol! My boy needs to start preschool before I go through that again! Anyways, sorry about the stupidly long waffling post
