I have a scheduled c-section tomorrow when my baby will be 32w6d. I was hoping to make it to 34w this time so I could possibly room in with baby (I know that doesn't always happen even with a 34-weeker) but since I didn't, I'm guessing my baby will have to go straight to the NICU, especially since he's SGA (around 3.5 pounds).
It's REALLY REALLY REALLY important to me to be able to breastfeed successfully. The nurses have said I can breastfeed WHILE on the mag I.V., but obviously that can't happen if my baby is in an isolette in the NICU (which is in a completely different building here -- no chance of their wheeling me all the way over there while I'm bed-bound).
So I'm considering declining the mag. I haven't had a seizure yet... what are the chances I'd have one after the c-section? I think I'd rather chance it and be able to be with my baby that whole time.
Has anyone ever declined the mag? Am I insane for even considering it?
