I only had one & I'm glad I was asleep. The nurses had already made me change beds 3 times & then they wanted me sit up for the epidural(sp?). That's when I really lost it. On top of that I was going through pretty much dry labor. I had TC all natural without any pain meds. That was a breeze compaired to the c-section. But I can see how being awake would be the better option, at least you don't have to wake up & wonder what's going on.

that was my first and only c-section. i think that's one of the main reasons for not having anymore kids. the ear of going through it again. i had problems the whole pregnancy and i didn't want to go through that again either.

Add my prayers to the many already being sent. I'm sure they'll all be fine.

I had a c-section too.. OUCH. I was awake. Oh and it was after 32 hours of labor!
Never again. lol
