Can you share your c-section experience?


So my doctor has scheduled a c-section since my baby girl is still breech at 36 weeks, 3 days. I’m honestly very anxious and scared about the process since my first baby was born vaginally. I’m not looking for any horror stories (😱) but I’d like to hear the basics of the process...i.e. when did you stop eating, did you wear your contact lenses, when could you hold your baby after the surgery, what happens after you’re stitched back up, etc. I’d also love to hear any recovery tips you have to make life easier afterwards.
