I'm 37 weeks with my second child. I was really looking forward to my son until be became breech a few weeks ago. I have no choice but to get a c-section now, and I'm really scared. I know that I am going to have to stay in the hospital for a few days, and I have never been away from my 16 month old daughter for more than 8 hours. On top of it, when I get home it will only be me to take care of both kids because my husband is in Tech School (he is in the Air Force) and we don't have any family nearby. I fear that I'm going to injure myself attempting to jump right back into my regular routine. Does anybody have any suggestions or tips that will make this time easier. I'm super stressed out about it. If you have had a C-section, can you tell me what the recovery is like?
