I mean the actual procedure. And if you've had both an epidural once and a spinal, which would you recommend getting for a c-section if you could choose? I've had epidurals in the past and now they want me to have a spinal for my cesarean and I'm really iffy about it. What was the spinal like for you? Any post partum side effects from it? How painful was it? Thanks....

My spinal was much like the 2 previous posters. Hunched my back. . . quick poke. . . numb after about a minute. . . lasted for awhile (seemed like a long time). I did have a lot of nausea and threw up quite a bit after my son was born . . It took a while to find meds that stopped the nausea but after that I was fine. . .no headache. . .
