    Oh that's interesting! What exactly can you feel when they're doing it all? I had a GA with mine but the next one should be a more normal cs, so will be interesting to know!

    I could 'feel' it but it didn't hurt. It was uncomfortable and I did get quite anxious about what I could feel. Like iwas being pushed and shoved a bit from the inside!? Hard to describe. And I was sort of being moved on the table as my OB pulled the baby out! It didn't last long though.

    I can only speak for myself, but I felt like my guts were Mary Poppins carpet bag and someone was rummaging around in there pulling out lamps and whatnot. It's not painful, but I found it a very odd sensation and experience.

    I'm sure a lot of what I would have suggested has already been written in this thread but one thing which I wasn't expecting was 'wind' pains in my stomach a week after the c/s. Apparently when you're opened up (in any OP) air bubbles can get in and it can be quite excruciating on top of your tender stomach, therefore I would suggest having some 'De-gas' or similar over the counter med handy 'just in case' you are caught out with wind pain.

    ETA - I had to constantly ask if I could get out of there.
    The reason I said this, is because I played all 'I'm fine lets go to baby' but really I was almost fainting and had started to go into shock - a quick thinking Ob saved me (long story). The second time I just let the observations required happen, only hubby was with bub and I knew he would take care of her

    I found it very, very odd. I didn't get that blunt kind of "someone is slicing body open with a knife feeling" but more like someone pulling and pushing my whole body really hard in different directions. It is hard to describe, I guess.

    But, I did not experience any pain, as such. Even my recovery was really good.

    I had a good experience.

    It is a weird feeling because you can feel pressure and movement but no pain.

    From the start to bub out is about 15mins. Once you can hear the crying and see them, the focus is off everything else! Well it was in my experience!

    I loved my csection. After a horrendous labour and the pain that goes with it, the epidural and the initial pain getting up for the first time were nothing to me. It is a shock getting out if bed that first time but I coped fine. I didn't even really need much pain relief after that. The middies reminded me! I think I was too busy with baby to notice. By 4 weeks I was walking for an hr a day.
    Some great advice on here.
    I hope it goes well for you!
