Hey girls is anyone opting for elective c-section? For me it started of that way due to twins and high bp. And now high bp is the only factor although if my body is behaving we cld go for induced vag birth. However from get-go I was adamant to have a C-section this time. I had a traumatic dd delivery and I still can't get that out of my mind. I tore pretty bad they got my epi wrong - fixed it three times and still only half side of my body pain was blocked off and the half I felt everything (baby was coming so really cldnt try and fix the epi problem). The pain was horrendous, I wasn't listening to anyone or anything just going crazy and pushing away - I have no idea how grandmas or mums did it without epi! Labour was long and they had to pop my waters (which is no biggie on the scheme of things ). Baby was in stress, i was in stress. Recovery was long and hard. I had so many stitches that they didnt even count. Now girls don't freak out at all the good news is that every pregnancy and delivery is different - ds delivery was a dream and I was actually smiling with every push and very well behaved. Of course that was the magic of epi! Recovery was normal.
So now iam thinking of csection and i feel its a more controlled enviro but I guess the recovery will be harder then vag birth ( unless of course I wld be twice unlucky to have 4 th degree tear!).
Just your thoughts. But definitely epi is on the menu ASAP, iam a wuss cause I have been through the pain - and that was only half side of the body I cannot imagine if I had nothing!
