andrea2, if you don't mind me asking, how does the doctor know at 5 weeks that you will need another csection? I only ask because my doctor said the same thing at my first appt. His exact words were, "Well, the first one was a csection so you can depend on this one being a csection too." It sort of p__sed me off because it just seemed way too soon to decide that. I really want a natural birth this time. If I NEED a csection than of course it will be done but I don't want him to just do it because I had one the first time.

Hi Amylou, what s_x is your other two children? Your as far as my sister in-law. I'm not looking forward to a c section either. Jennifer, I did not have my first appointment yet, but I know my doctor is going to tell me that I will have to have another c-section. It seems like that is the going way with people have kids. I had a terrible c-section. Something was up with the pain medicine it did not numb me in the right places, so I felt the cutting. I was crying so hard and my husband almost fainted. The doctors just thought I was emotional. I told the anesthesiologist that I could still feel it when he scratched my arm with the pop sickle stick, but he just put more of the pain medicine in me and it just numbed my legs even more. I had a v____al with no pain medicine and I would rather have another v____al over a c-section any day! So I’m really nervous about a c-section. I’ve heard having a v____al after a c-section is really dangerous. I just need to make sure they do not use the same anesthesiologist.

I have researched it a lot and a v____al after a csection is only dangerous if you have a vertical incision. From what I understand they never do those anymore because of the risk of uterine rupture. Csections are almost always more risky than v____al, even after a csection. I am so sorry Andrea that you went through such a terrible experience. I feel that my doctor just prefers doing csections to v____al deliveries. I heard a nurse saying that she thinks he would do all csections if he could. Best of luck to you whichever way you give birth. I hope that it is a much more pleasant experience for you this time.
