Both my c-sections were horizontal cut and I had staples both times. I am not obese either.
I didn't feel anything when they pulled out the staples, just a slight pulling sensation.
Between my myomectomy and 2 c-sections, I've had three cuts in the same area and the scarring is minimal. My doctor did a bikini cut all three times so even if I'm wearing just my underwear, you can't see the scars.View Thread
I would have liked to have a vaginal delivery but due to a myomectomy that removed several fibroids, my doctor said I had to have c-sections. I wanted the rush to the hospital in the middle of the night experience and thought I wouldn't get that but DS had other plans. My water started leaking around midnight 2 days before his scheduled c-section so so I had it then. DD behaved and waited until she was scheduled.View Thread
I had two different doctors use staples to close me up. They were taken out before I left the hospital and the nurse put tape on the incision after she was done removing the staples. My doctor removed the tape at my first post-partum appointments about two weeks later.View Thread
After my first c-section, I had such little pain that I actually forgot to take my pain meds and 11 days after DS was born, I was given the okay to drive since I wasn't taking my pain meds. Rolling over in bed was a bit uncomfortable and obviously I couldn't sleep on my stomach for a few weeks afterward.
After my second c-section, I had minor complications with bleeding and had to have 3 units of blood. I was given the okay to drive after two weeks but overdid it the first time out and was laid up for 2 days afterward. I had to take the pain meds longer after my second one. I had heavy bleeding 3 weeks after DD was born and had to go to the ER.
Like pregnancies are different from woman to woman and even within the same woman, c-sections are different as well.View Thread
At least you have a cup. My doctor gave me a test strip at each appointment and expected me to pee on that. The test strip was about 1/2 cm wide and the further along I got the harder it got to position the stip just right.View Thread
Definitly need to speak your mind. When I had DS, he woke me up at 12a after only one hour of sleep. Almost everyone came to visit on that day and I was exhausted. When I was pregnant with DD, I told some people to come on the second day and told them why and they did.View Thread
For some women it doesn't come in until after the baby is born. Also, what usually comes in first isn't actually milk, it's colostrum (I think that's how it's spelled). While it isn't milk, it's still important as it's rich in antibiotics.View Thread
