A few random ELCS questions

(28 Posts)

I'm booked in for an ELCS in a week's time (eek!) and there are a few random and silly things I have been wondering about.

When you go in to the hospital, should DH bring the bags, or wait until I'm in recovery to get them (I'm assuming we'll need the baby stuff for when he's born straight away?)

What will I be wearing during the op, is it a hospital gown?

If so, when would I put on nightie/knickers/maternity pad? How quickly does the lochia start? I read on here about someone getting a bit rush of fluid afterwards and its freaking me out a bit!

All silly things I know, I'm staring to eat nervous so focussing on the details now!

Anything else I should know/be prepared for I'd also be grateful to hear about smile

Omg injections, I've not heard of this before? I have my pre-op on Thursday so I'll ask about it then. Really hope I don't have to do this!

Hope we haven't scared you, but injections seem to be commonplace now. My DH offered to do them, but I preferred to do it myself. Not pleasant, but better than DvT is how my MW put it.

yes I think the injections are (commonplace) but I wasn't going to risk dh hurting me so I did them myself wink
