Is there anything special I should pack in my hospital bag for my scheduled csection? I've never packed a hospital bag before. Sounds ridiculous, but it's true. I just don't know what to pack and I'm afraid I will end up packing everything but the kitchen sink. Lol
We have scheduled a csection for March 5th! Only 25 more days. And I'm counting down. Lol
Like the PP said - a pillow for your belly. Sneezing and coughing are not comfortable. Also, get a step stool for home. Your first bowel
movement will not feel good either. Use the step stool to make your knees higher than your waist. It will help relax the muscles.
Also, for the hospital - do you have a rice bag? I loved mine (we had an in room microwave so it was convenient). It really helped w back pains associated w having to sit funny for so long. I also took a REALLY saturating lotion for
my legs. They swelled up like crazy and felt really dry and itchy. Chapstick!!!'
