If so, do they put a catheter in you? They put a catheter in me when i was in labor with my dd after i got my epidural, but i was wondering if they did that for a repeat c-section.

I was afraid of that LOL. I was numb when they put it in with my dd but i wasn't when they took it out. It hurt when they pulled it out so i can only imagine how it feels goin in if they do it before they get you numb LOL.

Yep. Mine took place when they were monitoring me in L&D before I went down to the OR to get my spinal. They pretty much do it so you don't piss all over yourself on the OR table when the spinal sets in, lol.

Anytime a woman is going in for a c-section, whether it is repeat or emergency, you are going to get a catheter, at least for a short while till whatever medications they have given you to numb the lower half of your body ware off.

I had a planned C section for my first, and they put the catheter in after I got my epi.

I have had a urinary catheter with each C-Section!!  Yuck!!  The first one they did before the spinal and it was the least pleasant experience ever!!  The second I asked them to please do it after the spinal and they did!!  Much Better!!!!
