My doctor told me I need a C section tomorrow and this is something I wasn't quite prepared for I'm scared out of my mind....anyone who's had a C section tell me what it was like please. I'm prectically having a panic attackAnswer Question
I had a C-section for my son. He was breech. I went in a couple hours before I was scheduled, they had me change into a gown and hooked me up with an IV. When my scheduled time was closer they placed a catheter and made sure my lower belly was shaved (you might want to do this yourself if you can because they use really cheap razors and I had razor burn on top of everything) Finally it was time and I had to don the very cute hair net. I was wheeled into the OR (my husband was in a different room putting on scrubs) and transferred to the operation table. The anaesthesiologist gave me a spinal (numb from the breasts down) and had me lay back. I really dreaded the spinal but it wasn't that bad. They have you curve your back and hold real still. After that, I was laying down, hubby sitting next to me, and I felt my doc press (I could only feel pressure). I asked the doc what was going on (cont)

. . . He said I'd hear water being sucked out (breaking my water) in a moment. A minute later there was water and. . . a baby cry. . . then I cried. . . The worst part was I threw up quite a bit after. They tried a few different drugs to stop it and finally found one that worked. . .I was very sore after the spinal wore off but was able to walk around the next morning. Here is a hint though. After the section, when you need to get up, roll to your side, pull your knees up, and then roll up to a sitting position. You may want to try to hug a pillow while doing so. This will lessen the discomfort. Just focus on your safe and healthy baby and everything will be fine.
If you have any more questions feel free to message me.
