Just one thing, tell the nurse during your c-section if u.even think you perhaps might be nauses... She will adjust the meds and keep u from vomiting during your.c-section... Don't wait till your shure your gonna vomit.. tell her when u think u might be getting nauses... When they are laying, ummmm parts across u, your blood preside will drop, which cause nausea.. and it doesn't stop till your insides r back where the belong.. sorry, didn't know how else to explain it..

That IS a really helpful slideshow, thanks! This will be my fourth c-section, and I agree with momm_leslie about the nausea, definitely tell them ahead of time.
