I had my daughter a little over 2 years ago. After 24 hours of labor and 2 epidurals that raced through my system and then vanished we decided to have a c-sect. They tried a spinal but that completely failed so they had to put me under general anesthesia.
I'm now pregnant again and would really like to have a scheduled c-section but really, really don't want to end up under a general again. My doctors, etc were fantastic and the head of anesthesia visited me the day after my surgery to chat about things. He said that sometimes part of your body just rejects the meds but that doesn't mean it would happen again. They suggested going straight to a spinal next tie around.
I was just curious of anyone else had this experience. I know it's going to stress me out the whole pregnancy but not as much as stressing over labor LOL! I know a c-section is the right call for me but would love to have a crystal ball to see if the meds will work this time.
