OK ladies, lately I have found myself getting worried about delivery LOL!! I had a planned c-section 8 years ago that went wonderfully (that I wasn't nervous about at ALL), but I am finding myself getting SOOOOO nervous about this upcoming one! LOL Maybe because its been so long I almost forget what it was like? Or maybe its because this time the doc wants to use a spinal (which I have NO experience with)-last time I had an epidural..I am SO scared that something might go wrong or that my experience this time around might be bad SIGHHHHH Can any of ya ladies ease my worried mind?

I'm right there with you hun. I'm starting to get nervous too. My first was a home birth and I was really comfortable with that, but this time I'm going to be at a hospital, and it's such a different experience that I feel like a first time mom. I guess the only thing I can say is that regardless of how we do it, our bodies are made to give birth. We can do it!

I have no idea if this helps you, but when I am having useless worries like that, I sort of neutralize it by thinking of even more outlandish worries. Massive solar flare, spontaneous combustion, airplane crashing into my living room right where I'm sitting. My brain sort of goes "well that's not even worth thinking about" and then I stop worrying anyway no idea if that's just me but hope it helps

Ok I take that back I do have advice. Even though you are not having a vaginal delivery I do suggest listening to hypnobabies positive pregnancy affirmations! Seriously they put my mind in such a positive place with my pregnancy with Everett. And I think that it will really help. You dont need to do the program and can download the affirmations. They help you sleep and are seriously amazing! I need to start listening to mine again.

ive also found myself stressing over thinking of what its going to be like, this is my first baby and i really hate needles so i dont think i will go for the epidural unless it is really bad. im just starting to get used to needles in my arm, cant imagine one going between my spinal disks... eeehh also have found myself worrying about the small chance of something going really wrong even though im hoping to have the baby at a hospital.

I have had 4 spinals done in my life, for c-sections and then two surgerys (yikes) and I haven't ever had a problem with them. No complications... I know it is scary. Even though this is my 3rd c-section, I am still pretty nervous about it and the recovery time. I think because we have alllll this time to sit and think about what is coming, it makes it worse! lol. Hang in there!! We will be probably having our c-sections within a couple days of each other So I will keep ya in my thoughts!

Yes! You probably had a spinal with your first just didn't know it! You can't have a casarean with just an epidural! But they can use your epidural to inject the spinal!

The only difference will be going in sober to have one! Where you aren't in labour and are saying!! Give it to me!!! Hahaa

It will go wonderfully don't worry!
