They told me after that there was meuconium (sp??) there, too.
Holy jesus.

It was awful. And that's why I only have one child. And, I really, really feel terrible for you.

That's not the PTSD story, though. That's something different.
hey pain is pain..it all hurts especially that!

god I am glad I didn't even know they could put a spinal too high..that sounds scary! Not feeling yourself breath must be terrifying!

It was brutal. My arms were paralyzed, and they had to strap them down. The last few minutes when they were finishing the stitches, it was starting to wear off, and I could feel it a bit. They asked me if I wanted more anaesthetic, and I was like "NO!!!! I would have rather felt everything than go through that again.

Dis, the thing with spinals are that they are a one-shot dose of the anaesthetic, as opposed to an epidural, where the medication is administered slowly and consistently throughout the surgery. The reason they use spinals is mainly for emergencies, because it takes faster. So, if you decide to have another child, you'll probably know in advance that you're having a c-section, and this time you can have an epidural.

Ok this is making me rethink that one kid thing now.

I actually told someone last week "as I get older I think I'd like to have at least one"

*sends booze over to Canada*... wait

All I kept hearing for ages after is "oh, you'll forget the trauma of childbirth, and want to do it again!" I never did. I remember it like it was yesterday.

F-that! I will NEVER forget it...that is said by people who never have kids.

my hospital doesn't do epi's. Thankfully mine went in smooth or they were going to have to put me out. I was so relieved to get it I cried. I was strapped down though, it didn't bug me that much..I was just so relieved it was over.

we plan on having like 4 kids

I've passed two kidney stones, and was told that doing so was just as bad, if not worse, than childbirth. A friend of mine who has two kids had a stone a few years back and told me it was worse than having her kids.

So I think if that's the case, having kids will be cake.

All this childbirth talk is kinda freaking me out. I've been in pretty horrific pain before, but that was probably nowhere near as intense.

I have always wanted to have kids, but sometimes I just don't know.

I actually wouldn't trade that experience (as horrific and painful as it was) for anything..it's such an amazing feeling.

That's what I've heard so many times.

I do really want to have one or two some day.

I still say if it was scientifically possible make him have one.

Ok, I've closed out of the dating sites. It looks as if I'm doomed here - they all look like the type that wants a woman who'll ride the four wheelers. Damn it.
