Quoting Felicia Reimann:" ...If so, I have some questions for you! my last child was born C-Section, but it was unscheduled ... [snip!] ... so im wondering if ill have time before hand to get a good night sleep. Also I didnt eat the first 2 days only water and ice."
I had to be at the hospital two hours before my c-section to be put on the monitor. My first was emergency and unplanned, but the second was planned as well as this pregnancy. Second time, it was scheduled for 8am then got pushed back to noon but I went in labor on my own at 9:30 so they took me straight back to the OR, had her at 10:14am. This time it's scheduled for 11:00am and I have to be there at 9:00am.
I'm not allowed to eat after midnight the night before; this has/will happened both times.
They monitor baby the entire time before the c-section. Two hours.
A scheduled c-section is 100 times better than an emergency/unplanned one! Recovery is easier, you're not in as bad of pain, etc. My first scheduled I was in the hospital 7 days but this time around it's only 2 days (unless there are complications) Get as much rest as possible before your c-section lol
