Baby is scheduled to arrive on Nov. 18!
While I’m excited, my nerves have got the best of me. I wasn’t nervous having my son. I suppose it’s because I had an awesome pregnancy, and I was ignorant to any complications that could have occurred during delivery and after. I purposefully didn’t read up on any of that and put my faith in my doctor and her guidance.
As you may know, this pregnancy was a whole lot different that my first. However, everything I went through wasn’t pregnancy related. Maybe that’s good? With my son, my thought was “Ah! What could go wrong?” With this one, it’s “What WILL go wrong?”
I’m getting a c-section again and since I had my appendix out in Sept., I’m told it’ll be a bit more complicated this time. Scar tissue is forming, and I may still be healing so there are challenges for the doctor.
A lot of people keep telling me that I’ve been through enough so I’ll be OK. Well, why would my “troubles” stop? Ever since my surgery, I’ve been hit with pains, infections, the flu, and a bladder infection. Every week it was something so I can’t help but think it’ll continue once I have another surgery and a baby! And, I can’t even start on my concerns for baby and all she’s been subjected to. I’m anxious to hear her cry and for them to tell me she’s perfect.
But, I’m pushing those thoughts aside as best I can. I’m going to have a baby! YAY!
How did you cure your worries about your deliveries?
