IF I have to have a csection, it will be my first one. I don't know what to expect or what it will be like afterwards. I have had 2 vaginal deliveries, but there are some complications to this pregnancy that weren't there with my last 2 and its a big possibility that I might have to have one. Im scared to read information about it, and I can't have an epi so they would have to put me completely under..last time I had surgery and was completely under I woke up with an anxiety attack to the point they had to put me under and bring me out again..I don't want to freak out, but I have no clue how to stop it..it has been over a year since my last attack..I don't get them often and I don't take meds because I don't get them on a regular bases...I can still hope I get to do vbac..but im trying to get myself more comfortable with the idea of a csection..
When you say vbac do you really mean vaginal birth? If you have a scheduled Csection they are not that bad I had a scheduled Csection (it was scheduled the day before i was almost 42 weeks) & the recovery was PHENOMENAL! I think people are scared into hating csections because people who have never had them scare everyone. I was up and walking that night and although I do not recommend it I was even having sex 6 days later.
believe me if I can prevent it I will. My husband can't be with me durring a csection because they have to put me under..ultrasounds can be off, but as of monday she was estimated at 4lbs 15oz..and If she starts to estimate over 9lbs they will do a csection..I have spina bifida and the OB doesn't think my back can handle the extra stress.plus im having blood pressure issues even now. If I make it full term he said it would most likely have to be a csection, but it isnt scheduled yet. I told the OB i wanted to wait closer to my due date to see how big she really does get..I was 31 weeks when I had the ultrasound and my stomach is measuring at 36weeks..thats one of the reasons the ob is so worried..
