Today I've been a wreck as I got news that my csection was scheduled for next Wednesday when I'll be 34 weeks. I've been in the hospital 3 weeks now with bleeding and possible rupture. I have a complete previa. They are also worried as I came in anemic and with all the blood loss I'm looking at a transfusion in my near future.
The doctors say that at 34 weeks the benefits of delivery (for my health) outweigh the risks to the baby but this makes me super nervous. My doctor and the neonatologist both assure me this is the right course of action but I can't help but want him to cook longer if I can help it. I know he'll be tiny and will be in the NICU for a while. Not to mention I won't be able to breastfeed right away either. They told me I would hand express/pump in the beginning to get my supply started but I'm not very optimistic about this.
Anyone have experience with 34 week babies? Any words of experience or comfort?
