Evening!

I thought I'd post a quick update on how I'm getting on. I'm 36+3 today - can't quite believe it!

Saw my consultant today who said that I'm 'going off the boil' (direct quote) as I'm starting to puff up and my BP is rising. So, I'm booked in for a caesarean on Friday - this Friday! I'll be 37 weeks exactly!

In the meantime I've got to go in for monitoring tomorrow, Weds and Thursday just to be sure that things stay ok.

I'm nervous and excited. I'm trying really hard not to dwell on the negative emergency experience I had previously and tell myself that this caesarean will be much calmer etc. But its still quite scary!

Hi Jodie,

Congratulations on reacing such a great gestation and your forthcoming new arrival!

I think Laurie has posted somewhere here about how different second section was for her. She described feeling more in control and an altogether more positive experience. I hope, that as you say, because its a planned section not an emergency one - your experience will too be a more positive / calmer one for all of you.

Warmest wishes, I will be thinking of you on Friday!
Liz

Hi Jodie,

Good luck for Friday. I had a c-section with Tilly at 37 weeks exactly after having an emergency one with Max at 28 weeks. I don't remember anything about the first one but the midwives and doctors did everything to re-assure me that what they were doing this time was totally standard procedure and no different from the several c-sections they carry out every day.

We had a CD on (Kings of Leon - Steve's choice not mine - I wanted Take That! Obviously not to the consultant's taste either as he asked for it to be changed half way through Laughing ) and as I was being wheeled back into recovery one of the anaethetists was busy texting someone!! That helped put my mind at rest that they weren't worried!!

I really hope you have a similar positive experience as I did. I will be thinking about you on Friday and look forward to reading your news.
Love Caroline xxx
