  • I am scheduled for a c-section November 21st and am really nervous I had my daughter via emergency c-section 8 years ago after I had a bad reaction to the epidural I had my son vbac and I have to have a c-section with this one because the hospital that I am delivering at won't allow vbac's anymore.Will the spinal be very painful?

  • My sister just had a planned c-section (her first babies, twins) and she said the spinal didn't hurt at all cause they numb you first!

  • All I felt was a small bee sting type of feeling when the numbed the area. It is hard when you first section was under such stress to be positive about having another, but read our thread Good Things about a repeat
    it might help.

  • I had a spinal with my 2nd c-section.. not painful AT ALL... they give you the needle.. stings a bit.. then after a bit you start to feel all warm and tingly in your lower half. then once you can't feel anything they get to work.

    I had a great experience with my scheduled section.

  • I think it's supposed to feel pretty much like an epidural, I was stuck four times (they were training an anesthesiologist - ugh) before they finally got my epi in, but even that many times it wasn't bad - the pain of the contractions was much worse! With these scheduled ones we won't have anything to keep our minds off it, though!

    On a separate note... that sucks that you can't have a vbac with this one, obviously you'd be a good candidate since you've already been through one.
