Today I want to share my experience with you guys , and give some pointers on what to expect !
Firstly I chose to have a c section , in South Africa you can do that , my reasons were the fact that I lived 3 hours from the nearest proper hospital , my sister wanted to be here for the birth and she lives in Australia , oh and I didn’t want to do natural labour ! The whole thing just scares me to death .
The scariest part for me was the whole being awake thing … I have been in for operations before so that part didnt scare me , needless to say I was not awake for these ! 🙈
Above me on the table were these huge lights and they reflected haha , so I could see EVERYTHING , it was one of those “I cant look away” scenarios!
The placing of the catheter….. oh my word , I have never been that naked in my life !! Lol
I started shivering so much that I couldnt speak … and I started freaking out a little , the moment and the whole experience just was too big at that moment , but they had amazing staff and everyone talked to me and calmed me down .
The moment Paige came out and they showed her to me …..
That moment made everything worthwhile, the being uncomfortable for 9 months , the weight gain , the countless bladder infections, the mood swings , the not drinking wine, the fights , all of it was worth it and my life changed forever !
The pain afterward was manageable , and the pain meds were awesome (since I only had panado for 9 months) haha .
I guess what I am trying to say is that it is so hectic and scary but oh so worth it !
I am inlove with my baby girl !
