I've found people tend to blow C-sects waaay out of proportion. Mind was honestly, easy peasy!
Arrived at 1pm, paperwork etc then sat around waiting our turn.
2.50 I was wheeled into theatre for my spinal while DH waited outside. I expected to be terrified, but everyone just chatted to me and I was totally at ease. DH came in and I expected again to be terrified again, but we all chatted while I waited for them to start... Then I heard the amniotic fluid being sucked out! I could feel 'stuff' but I thought they were just prepping! At 3.08pm my son was born! It was so quick.
By 4am I was up in the shower. The following day I was only taking Panadol and voltaren, pain was minimal.
