I am an absolute nervous wreck. I have my 3rd c-section in 2 weeks..and I just can't get the thought of death out of my head. I trust my doctor..the past 2 c-sections he has done of mine have been awesome and I recovered great with no infections or anything..but I'm really scared this time. I'm scared of not being numb when I get cut..I'm scared of the spinal..I'm scared of everything! Anyone else having this issue? I don't recall feeling this antsy with the last planned c-section...

Have you had the spinal before? I had a c-section with my daughter 8 years ago and will be having one with this baby in june.The first c-section I had an epidural but this time the doc insists on using the spinal and I am more scared about THAT then the actual c-section LOL!

Yes I had an epidural with my first c-section and then the 2nd I had a spinal...It wasn't that bad..I just think I mentally prepared myself that I was going to feel being cut open and I thought I was so they ended up knocking me completely out.

Maybe you can ask them to knock you out this time too? I know that they OBs generally dont like to use that kind of anestesia but if you explain to them that it is your main concern, I am sure that they will take that into consideration. For me, Im not affraid of needles, but the thought of the spinal medication possibly moving up to high completly has me terrified
