During my C-Section in 2014 with my son, I ended up havingto seriously gasp for air. It literally felt as though I was not able tobreathe, almost what I picture drowning or suffocating feeling like. I wasmaking loud, long, concentrated gasps to breathe.
I was reassured the entire time by my Anesthesiologist thatmy vitals were perfectly fine, but it was still hard to wrap my head around thefact that the way I was breathing was ok.
Prior to my C-Section, I had read and heard from otherC-Section moms that they felt pressure on their chest and did not like thatfeeling, but had not heard of anything like this! I guess the main reason thatI am asking is that we are thinking about having another child, and I amterrified that if I have to have another C-Section that I will have thisfeeling again, and I really do question whether something to this extent wasnormal or what the heck was going on with me?
Thanks for any input!

I am sorry that this was your experience, but it has never happened to me during my 2 I have had. Did you feel like you were possibly panicking or anything like that? I would most definitely talk to your OB/GYN about your fears and see what they tell you. Good Luck!!!

Yes this happened to me and let me tell you I was absolutely terrified!! I was 17, was in slow labour from Wednesday. Went into hospital on the Friday and was in full labour, Sunday morning they decided that there wasn't any progress since Saturday night and because my baby was so too big for me (I'm 5ft and had a small build) it just wasn't going to happen so they sent me for an emergency c/s. I was shaking like mad laying on the operating table I was so scared. My partner was calming me down but after a little while I started to lose consciousness because of the exhaustion and shock of knowing I was being cut open. Whilst I was lay there I felt like I was sinking into my face because I couldn't breathe, I asked for oxygen and a woman said I was fine but I wasn't , I demaded oxygen in the end...I heard my baby cry and just zonked out, next thing I know I wake up in recovery! One of the scariest things that ever happened to me and I get flashbacks and almost have panic attacks when I think about it ? Not sure if that's normal

I wan to share my own c-section experience. I had c-section in last August. I heard a lot from my family about it. My two sisters already had c-section. One sister has three children all from c-section. I listened that c-section is not easily recoverable. I'm agreed with it. During my c-section time, I didn't face any serious situation. All things are almost smooth. One week was a little bit tuff due to my stitches. I focused very much on my diet after c-section. Ate a lot of dry fruits, nuts, milk, dairy products. This helps a lot in my recovery. Now Sometimes I feel pain in back. But it only happens when doing work too much.
