Weddingobsessed:  My scheduled C-section at 39w1d was actually a great experience. Recovery was much easier than I anticipated – try to get up and walk as often as you can once they tell you you can. I was up and walking the day after my surgery, less than 24 hours. I made sure to get up often (to go to the bathroom, for example), and I’m sure that’s why I recovered quickly. I did have a catheter until I was able to get up. As far as breastfeeding goes, I did have a lot of trouble, but I think that was more so my body and my daughter’s latching issues than anything.

MissKristi:  The spinal did not hurt. I barely remember what it felt like, it was so insignificant. I think it was more strange feeling rather than painful.

MissKristi:  It didn’t hurt. It was really like a pinch, and then it was over. I had to sit on the table with my knees up to my chest and they did the injection in my back. i remember being upset that DH wasn’t allowed in the room when I got it, and then when it was done it was no big deal and I felt silly for being upset at all.

Weddingobsessed:  I had a scheduled c-section at 39 weeks. No twins here but yeah it makes sense why they don’t wouldn’t let you go over that time.  My milk didn’t come in right away.  It actually came in when I got home 4 days pp.  I did have very light colostrum at the hospital, but my son wasnt the greatest latcher, he prefered to go to sleep than eat.  One night, however, he was very hungry and my colostrum wasn’t enough so I asked the nurse to give me some formula and I gave him that for that night.  Once we got home, I continued skin to skin, like I did at the hospital, and my milk finally came in.  The LC told me that most mommies who dont go through labor can have this happen, because your body and brain haven’t yet communicated baby is out and milk should start.  It was in my case, but there are also some women that don’t go through this and have their milk come in right away.  P.S. I did stimulated my breasts before my c-section, but it didn’t do anything.  Good luck, lady! I am sure you will be just fine 🙂

MissKristi:  No, I think my IV hurt more than the spinal both times.
