I had a c section with my second child and I know I will be having another one in July or August. The first time, I was just excited to have my baby and I was a little nervous about the whole thing, but it wasn't bad. During the delivery, I was very calm and the recovery was not bad at all. It went very well and I would much rather have another c section then to have a vaginal birth again. Just my preference. But, even though it was not bad, I'm so nervous about going through it again. I think more nervous this time then the first time around. The only thing I can think of is because I know what's going to happen this time. I just keep thinking of the O.R. and them sticking me in the back to numb me and then the waiting while I know they are cutting me and stitching me back up. I'm not really nervous about the recovery or even those first couple of hours after the birth. Just the actual delivery. Does this make any sense? I had no pain and nothing bad happen the first time. Even the sticking in the back wasn't that bad. Has anyone else gone through this? Does it get better as time goes on. Like maybe when you're 30 or 35 weeks pregnant and you're miserable?!
