I didn't find out his head was stuck until they cut me open. The only part that sucked was I could feel them sewing me up, so they had to knock me out. I didn't get to see him until he was almost 2 hours old, but he got to spend all that time alone with his daddy so it's special for them and I like that.

Awww but the outcome was nice and it was really special for your dh to bond with his son all that time. So he was in good hands.

Yeah. I'm totally jealous but at the same time I know how happy that makes him, so I can accept it. He always says how he was the first to hold him, his hand was the first he held and I'm thinking "bahhh" lol

The big ass needed in my back felt like heaven compared to my contractions. That was one of my biggest fears.

A C-section is pretty much my worst fear, so... I chose vaginal. I've had 3 go well and I'm hoping the same for #4. :)

It isnt for everyone but I could take the contraction pains anyday and the feeling to know when to push vs be numb from waist down. That is just me but if I didnt had a choice then thats another story. Ill do whatever it took for my baby to come to this world safe. Even if I had to go through a c section. But I am glad it didnt go that way. I have much respect for ladies who go through it ( csections) since is very hard to not be able to be in contact with your newborn right after is born.

I pushed for about 3 hours and I felt all of it. I also felt my Dr. doing perennial massages (and got very agitated).
I didn't really get numb again until they did a spinal block on me before the C-section.
Two of my besties went natural like champs.
ETA: I was and still am very anti C-section for myself. That was the last thing I wanted. :-(

Quoting Destinite:" It sucked. My bff thinks I am crazy for wanting a v-bac b/c it would be so convenient for me to just ... [snip!] ... them out. Plus, it feel great when the nurse come in to push on your very tender belly. It is not a walk in the park. "


I had an emergency C-section and never had any of those issues my son was with me the whole time a nurse walked beside me when I went to my room with him and I was handed him once I got in the room.



He had to go to the NICU for low blood sugar it went from 49 to 12 (I'm diabetic) and I asked the nurse to get me in the wheelchair it took two of them but I got in the chair I was in NICU for maybe an hour moving just to see if I could and told the nurse I was walking back to my room because I wanted the foley out and did. I even asked to go home a day early and they let me and was not taking anything not even advil and went back to normal activities (housework, taking care of my 3 year old/new baby, finished all my midterms and never fell behind in my classes)



I know everyone is different but I was fine and had no complications from the surgery either.



lol the only thing I hated was the car ride home that sucked!

:!: This. I was the same way. The dr and nurses couldn't believe how well I responded after having my c sections. I was up walking around 5 hrs after having my surgeries. Sure it wasn't a walk in the park. It hurt really bad to cough, sneeze, move and hurt when they pushed on my stomach. But it wasn't excruitiating and it's just something you learn to deal with when having to have surgery. But before I had a csection, I was terrified of the thought bc everyone makes it seem a LOT worse than it actually is.
