I watched the movie "What to expect when your expecting" and it literally scared the bejesus outta me!---espacially the part where the woman was having a c/s and started to lose so much blood that she almost died I will be having a c/s with this baby and that scene was so incredibly traumatizing to me that I can't stop thinking about all of the "what ifs" now Can anyone give me reassurance?

There is not much reassurance except that those situations are rare. But I hear you with most cases of what I have end up with placenta accreta and the mortality rate is 7%...... that makes me want to pass out just thinking about it... I just get through trusting in God and praying for his will in my life! ((Hugs hun)) oh and stay away from google, and web md they are not your friend!

I cant really give up much advice because it is not something I have had to deal with. That said I agree with CartersMommy and those situations are not the norm. You just have to trust that everything will be fine and that God will protect you. Trusting your doctor would also be an important thing I would think. Whenever that time comes you know you will have a great group of ladies here who will be thinking and praying for you!

I had a c section with my first and it wasn't planned. The c section rate is somewhere close to 35%. That is a lot of births. These Drs are trained to do this and are prepared for all the possible risks. The most important thing is to have a Dr you trust and fee comfortable with. You can also hire a csection doula if you want. She will basically be there is walk you through what is happening and make sure that your needs are taken care of. I'm attempting a vbac this pregnancy and I'll admit I'm scared, but I have a practice I trust and I know they will do everything to mdake sure I'm taken care of

There are always risks because it is a surgery, but OB's are trained surgeons and there aren't usually complications. The most common ones are related to the anesthesia, not blood loss. Try to relax! I am having a repeat c-section too, so we can be moral support to each other!

I'm lurking from July DDC - I refused to watch the movie until after we got pregnant figuring I couldn't handle it while TTC. Anyways, after it was over, I don't think the movie made me feel better - I think the whole thing scared the BEJESUS out of me!

Yea, I have had 3 c/s's and they all went just fine. The only advice I've been giving is that I believe the spinals are better than epidurals for when they are stitching you up. I brought it up to my new OB and he said that it's bc spinals don't have as much margin for error and seem to be more thorough at distributing the numbing.

Try not to worry. The fact that you're having it scheduled makes things even safer, I believe.

I'm here if you need to talk.

The only thing with Spinals is they usually make you shake starting at about the time they're stitching you up. It's unnerving but not as bad as the way I felt with the epi. With the epi, I could feel pressure against my heart when they were putting things back together before they stitched me back up which made me panic. I've never experienced that with the spinal the 2 times I had it.

So, this will be your second c/s? Didn't they use a spinal with your first or was it epidural?

As far as that movie goes, I actually saw it right before I got pg and I thought it was the stupidest untrue piece of garbage I'd ever seen. I can't even remember that c/s scene. That's how little it effected me. They did that scene for shock value and for the dramatic story line.

I have a c-section too and no scary things to report either. My doctor didn't stitch me though - I had something like 32 staples. The spinal did make it FEEL difficult to breathe but I was never having trouble breathing if that makes sense. The doctor who gave me the spinal stayed right by my head the entire time and showed me my pulse ox? and that made me feel a lot better. My chest just felt really heavy like someone was sitting on it. I also did not like the oxygen in my nose but twisted it down so it blew onto my mouth. That made me feel better too for some reason.

I agree with this. That is how I felt too.
