Congratulations! I have some pretty extreme birth stories, and most of what I went through will never happen to any 12 given women, but I hit the horrible pregnancy and childbirth jackpot! Just to give you some food for thought:
After being in and out of the hospital, from 20 weeks to 28 weeks, for dehydration caused from nausea and vomiting, then an early labor from a kidney infection, I had my twins at 31 weeks pregnant, after 8 days of bed rest, and had to be hospitalized another 4 days to recover, myself. Post Partum depression, with babies in the hospital for 6 weeks. I barely showered, let alone felt like making a cake!
I scheduled my daughter (repeat C-section) 2 weeks before the date she was due, but was in labor and dilated 8 centimeters (but they wouldn't let me have a VBAC) when I went in for it! Her father left me a week later, and I wound up having to care for her and my 3 year old twins by myself, and didn't stop bleeding for 5 months, because I had to go back to work after he left, so I was weak as heck.
With my last son, I felt fine at 5 am then got sick as a dog, crying, and calling my DH at work to take me to the hospital, and my mom to take the kids to school, sick, by 7 am, at 36 weeks pregnant. (I hate being any trouble, and ate to ask my mom for anything because then I will owe her) I had an emergency C-section 2 hours later, and spent 6 days in the hospital after I refused the blood transfusion. And my son needed 5 days, to start eating and get rid of the jaundice. I had him Tuesday, and I had a tasting scheduled that weekend, that I had to cancel. And I wasn't to lift anything heavier than 5 pounds, which included my child, for 2 weeks.
We are all fine and healthy and happy now, but it was TOUGH! then, and there are never any guarantees. Babies come at their own time, sometimes early, sometimes late. Sometime naturally, and sometimes via C-section. Some ladies feel great and strap their infant to their breast and keep on gardening, or whatever, and sometimes they are flat on their back for 6 days. I wouldn't take any chances at all. an if (GOD FORBID) I got pregnant again, I would not schedule a cake for 4 months before, and 2 months after. But I know my body, and most women wouldn't have to do that.
