I had a pretty severe blood pressure crash last time with the epidural,so I was hoping to avoid or at least be more prepared with the epinephrine right there. I am having a cesarean so I'm obviously having some kind of spinal anesthesia and this will come up again most likely. When I went into labor last time(a bit before 39 weeks) I hadn't slept so I was useless for answering questions,DH was in the hallway for some reason, and neither my doctor nor chart had arrived yet.
So would this be one of those good times to come up with a birth plan even if it has nothing else on it?
I will tell my doctor, the anestheologist, and my husband knows obviously but just in case everything goes the same. Part of me does think it would look silly to come in with a birth plan that's a whole 1-2 sentences though.
