Here I am with only 3 weeks and 5 days to go and I am starting to have second thoughts about having a c-section. My last three were very successful vbacs. I was reading some information last night on c-sections and I didn’t know that I couldn’t pick up anything besides the baby for the first 6 weeks. How am I going to manage my family?? Bryan will only be home for the first week after I get home from the hospital and then I will be completely on my own. Now that the time is getting closer I feel the need to dig deep in prayer and thought and figure out what exactly would be the best thing to do. I could always just attempt another vbac and then if it isn’t successful go ahead and have the c-section. The reason why we decided a c-section this time is that it just felt right. “B” prayed about it and also came to that conclusion. I haven’t received a direct answer yet but I have not really asked that question. I guess I am just really scared. I am going to be a mom of 5 children. How can I expect to do all that I am required to do if I am recovering from major surgery?? It’s probably just because the time is getting so close that all my fears are setting in. Is it normal to be scared to have my 5th child?? I’ve never been this nervous before any birth besides my first. Yesterday was just an emotional day as I was thinking about all of this.
