You'll be fine. My first was a c section because I had placenta previa and was hemorrhaging.  It feels really strange, but not painful.  Get up and walk around as soon as they let you, even though you won't want to.  You'll be surprised how fast you heal

You will be just fine! It's scary at first but they have the baby out in like 5 min and by then you are so distracted by your baby it will be over in no time! Just try to relax! I had one with my first and have to have one again with this one! Good luck

I'm going to be having my 5th csection August 15th. I'm always nervous lol. The longest part is the anesthesia spinal block. But everything will be fine. The best part is that you get to hear your baby cry for the first time and the baby will have a perfectly round head :). Lol that's what I'm looking forward to.

I just had one on monday the 13th. My second one first one was emergency so it was very scary this one was already scheduled so it was pretty smooth. I was nervous too very! Buy once i was there i prayed for baby and i next thing i know im laying there getting it done i walked in at 10:30 was preped by 12:32 we hear little one cry her lungs out lol. Don't be too scared the only thing is ths pain on IVs and spinal block but after that you just have to relax and let your body heal. We're now home resting and getting back in shape. Thanks to God. Good luck and prayers your way! (:

I've loooved my c-sections. There are horror stories out there, don't read them. Take your medicine everytime it's due, don't wait even if you aren't in pain, and walk the fine line between taking it easy and getting around. You'll do great. This will be my third c-section!
