With my daughter my water broke, I was so excited (dr already informed me she was sunny side up) I made it 17 hours before I got some medication in my are for a few hours and then at 21 hours decided on an epidural. My epidural stopped twice (they resituated it once and then redid it all together) I was in full blown labor on my right side and stuck at 6 cm for the last 8 hours. They finally called for a c section after 27.5 hours and I just bawled (I DIDN'T WANT ONE) Anyways because my epidural wasn't working properly I could feel the incision starting so they knocked me out (I still remember my dream...I thought I was dieing) I woke up when they were stapeling me and cried so they knocked me out again. I don't remember much but it was awful and the recovery worse. My daughter got a 1 on the APGAR scale because she had a faint heart beat but she wasn't breathing and was purple. After 3 min of oxygen she was fine. Anyways I have a different dr (same hospital) and a repeat c sec scheduled for Jan. 28th and I am FREAKING out. I am so scared that I am going to have the same experience on the table or worse that my son or I are going to DIE from this! Since i wasnt awake for my first one i feel like its my first time again. I've tried researching and talking to my dr but nothing is calming. When I read articles my fiest thought is what's the mortality percentage?? Oye. the way my mind works. I need advice, help, reassurance, something....a hug. Lol! TIA & sorry so long!

Talk to your dr bout how the last one went. Could be they gave you the wrong type (for you) or insufficient amount of anestheia last time. It'll be ok and you'll have your new baby b4 you know it.
