Well, I hadn't really thought about having a c-section before since my last birth went really smoothly, but I had a few curve balls thrown my way at my appt today.
First, I've been having horrible pressure under my pubic bone and when he checked, it wasn't the head...he thinks it is a shoulder or elbow. I go in Wednesday for an ultrasound for positioning.
Second, he estimated the weight as a heavy eight or light nine. I don't know what the hell a "light nine" pound baby is...but I'm sure its easier to say than it is to push out of your vagina.
Anyway, I guess I would rather have my stomach stitched back together than my ass, but can you choose whether or not to be put under? If they're worried about my blood pressure now...try while I'm awake for my stomach getting sliced open. I'll give myself a heart attack.
So will I get this choice and what else should I know?

They will not put you under for a C Sect unless it's a really big emergency and they don't have time for an epidural. When they sedate you it also sedates your baby and can cause major breathing issues for the little one.

I don't think it's an elective C Sect. She stated that there was issues with the positioning of the baby and possibly an issue with the baby being rather large. I believe her choice was about sedation not whether she can ask for a C Section. If I'm wrong OP please correct me because I based my firt answer on that.
