I'm officially afraid.

We are attending a child birth education class with the hospital where we will have the babies. I signed up for several reasons:
  1. The Hubs doesn't know as much as I do about lady parts/birth/etc and sometimes I forget that - so this ensures he learns about it all.
  2. It came with a tour of the hospital <-- we actually missed this class while I was in the hospital - needless to say, we didn't really need a tour after a 5 day stint.
  3. There is a whole class devoted to breastfeeding.
Last night's class was education on pain medication/options and cesarean sections.  I was pretty knowledgable about my options.  I was surprised to hear a girl in the class say she thought an epidural was "just a shot in your leg".  Perfect example as to why these classes are available.

Anyways, we watched a video on what they do during a C-section.  This is important to me because with twins, it's highly likely that I'll need a C-section.
Did I mention I'm scared?

Many, many, many women have C-sections.  Whether they are planned, unplanned or emergency, they happen all the time.  It's practically routine. I'm still scared.  I think, overall, I'm becoming more anxious because there are going to be TWO babies.  Not one.  One newborn is a lot to handle in and of itself but I'm having twins.  I know it's possible.  I'm just getting nervous. 

The Hubs is staying home with me for the first two weeks and then my mom is coming for a week but after that...I'll be on my own.  I guess this is the opportunity to show off my super woman skills....right?
