What I Didn't Know About C-Sections

I had my twins Milo and Violet via cesarean section at 27 weeks pregnant. Read my birth story here. It was an emergency c-section and we were totally unprepared for it to happen that day. I'm usually the type of person to research things like crazy, but I hadn't gotten around to researching c-sections before having my own.

When we found out we were having twins my doctor told us right away that I would most likely need to have a c-section. We were also warned about preterm labor, but I never thought I'd have my twins as early as I did.

I was in for quite the surprise with a lot of things about my c-section. It didn't help that the people I know who have had them didn't warn me about much.

Here are 23 things I learned about c-sections before, during, and after my own.

My Twin Birth Story: Giving Birth At 27 Weeks

On Saturday 7/6/2019 my husband, Adam, and I were babysitting a few kids. We had planned this months in advance and didn't see that it would be a problem since I would be 27 weeks pregnant. The plan was to babysit them till Tuesday while their parents were traveling. We had a really fun day with the kids, then when we were eating dinner I started to feel a little nauseous and tired. I went to lay in bed for a little bit and started to notice that I was having contractions.
