I am 37 weeks pregnant, and due to have my C-section sometime between the 1st and the 5th of March.. just have to decide on a date. I never wanted to have a section again, because I had a horrible experiance with my son ( I know this is NOT the norm, and most woman have wonderful experiances) my epidural failed to work properly with DS and I had a horrible time.... I wont go into graphic details. Anyway, the doctors im seeing have said no to me having a VBAC because my medical records are no where to be found (I moved to the USA from another country)..
My problem is this, ever since I found out I would not be allowed a trial of labor I have been having painc attacks at the thought of being cut open again.. I honestly get so nervous I throw up and break out into a cold sweat.. not to mention the nightmares Ive been having.
Have any of you ladies found a way to cope with this?? Is it bad for the baby to request some kind of tranqualizer or sedative prior to surgery? I would opt to have a general anasthetic, but I know that is NOT good for baby and somehow I have to overcome my fears.
Any advice would be wonderful
Thanks in advance
