Data and Delivery Issues

I am hot, bothered, a week into maternity leave and not at all relaxed :-(

My laptop has died and my last backup was done in April, so mr.ncot and I have to figure out how to retrieve that data. I have a hp laptop lined up to buy, but dont have loads of time to play around setting it up before baby arrives. And I have LOADS of things to do which involve laptop and internet connection. I am currently using Alan's netbook, but it all feels wrong. I know it's a small thing in the global scheme of things, but this is really p-ing me off.

I have loads of pregnancy, markus, family and pb2.0 updates to write and need to find the time to sit down and reflect.

The long and short of it is - I have to have a planned c-section in about 10 days time. I don't feel ready, I was really hoping for more time, I was hoping to try and give birth naturally, hoping for baby to turn or at least hoping that i could wait for labour to start before c-section happened. But after today's appointment (and the knowledge in the back of my head from last time) I guess I am not surprised that this is the outcome. I need a few days to get my expectations and disappointment out of my system, and then to move forward and look forward to the birth of our lovely little baby. How has this pregnancy gone by so fast? More details to follow....

I can't remember whether you had Markus by C-Section, or au naturel?

Well, I was going to say, anyway - if you didn't and you want any advice or anything - I am happy to chat about it with you.

I had the same feeling of disappointment when Lilly was born, she was supposed to be a planned C Section but ended up three days earlier being an emergency C Section.

The thing is, whilst you might feel you missed out on some aspect - the most important thing of all is that the baby is born safe and well, and that you get the best chance to recover without any drama.

I second what Yoko said.

Wow - that does seem like no time! Will be holding you all in my thoughts for the next 10 days (and onwards, of course!)

Wow, that was fast!

And I think once the baby is here, all this what matters now won't be that important anymore.
