Second c section encouragement

I've posted a few times on here about the possibility of a vaginal birth, and asked some questions. However, it's looking more and more like I will be having my second planned c section (just awaiting the "do not proceed with vaginal birth" from the OB I'll be seeing Feb.11). I am a little nervous every because my last c section started out with me ready to faint after they put the IV in my hand lol. Just looking for other people's stories and recoveries from a second c section please :)
