Quoting Shayna Santos:" Yeah, it feels like i pulled something and then this unbearable burning pain, it is def. one of the worsts ... [snip!] ... felt, my pain meds are running out so idk what im going to do if it continues. Its seriously that bad to where i want to cry."I would look into a post op support band then. I know maternity stores sell them and posibly even like a walmart. If you cant get one right away make sure to always brace with a firm pillow anytime you go to sit, stand, or cough. Make sure if you're running low on meds call your dr office for a refill. I made sure to call on friday so I knew I was covered for the weekend.
Quoting Regina Stevenson:" I plan on being stubborn lol. Its in my nature. And like I said my Dr hasnt told me smurf as to what will ... [snip!] ... for all my appointment dates and times and on Tuesday when I go in for my appointment for checkup pester as to WTF is going on."
Quoting paperduck56:" Yeah, okay.. Stubborn is good to a point. (And believe me, I have a massive stubborn streak! Lol!) But ... [snip!] ... TRUST your medical team, and you'll be handed a little package of pee, poop and insomnia in no time at all! Best of luck!"I only plan on being stubborn to get my questions answered. I do trust my medical team and I know it is to get my boys (Yes ID Twin boys so not one bundle of joy but 2) out safe and sound that is why we opted for the c-section in the first place. Baby A has a half on half off insertion placement of his umbilical cord so if he snagged it on the way out (even though they are both head down and I could try) I would start to hemmorhage and everything like that. SO I know it is what is best for me and my boys I just want to get my questions answered because damnit I am not dumb I do have a Medical Assistant degree but they dont go into things about performing c-sections and stuff when you are only an MA so I would like to know what is going to happen for what needs to be done (apart from fasting and being there on time) just the general layout of things. You know the order things are gonna go in and then what is gonna happen afterward and everything. I am more worried about what is going to happen throughout (the layout) than anything else. I havent been told anything and damnit I deserve to atleast know how things are being planned to go (even if something happens and they have to do a quick switchup on the plans I will atleast have a basic idea of whats gonna happen). I want to know the do's and dont's prior to going into the c-section (not the recovery just what I can and cannot do before hand and who/how many people are allowed and I would like 2 but have settled on 1 if only allowed 1)
Quoting Regina Stevenson:" I only plan on being stubborn to get my questions answered. I do trust my medical team and I know it ... [snip!] ... the more stressed. Think it is finally starting to click with her and I only have like 6 weeks till these guys get here lol."
Quoting paperduck56:" Oh thank goodness! It always worries me when women say they're being stubborn! Lol! How did you go getting ... [snip!] ... :S Like I said tho, just corner your doc and demand answers! It's yours and your babies' health. She HAS to answer you! "Yea I know she has to answer me. Tell ya the truth she has to answer anyone that asks. But I plan on getting my questions answered even if it is pestering the hell out of her. But there have been a few times I asked questions and she looked at me like WTF why are you asking this no other mom ever asked me and its because I am a MEdical Assistant. I may not be in that specific field (which one day I hope to get there) but I still know how to get the information I need and Dr.s are supposed to answer your questions. She just likes to take a roundabout way of answering them so you need to phrase the question just right in order to get a direct answer. Like it took me finally telling her well if a c-section is the safest then lets pick out a date so that we can get things set and I can get the notion for natural childbirth out of my head and start planning for the c-section. And then she hemmed and hawed around about setting a date because if they come early and stuff I would have to deliver somewhere else (because my reg ob doesnt do high risk deliveries before 37 weeks) and I was like I doubt I am gonna have a problem keeping them in because of how stubborn DS was to get here and he was only 3 days early. And even if they did come early it isnt like you wouldnt have time to go in and take it off the books. So she finally let me pick a date and we set it and its done.
