I talked to my friend and was saying oh I am going to ask for a walking epidural that way I can hold my baby while they're still sewing me up. Or at least be able to move a little bit more after the surgery.

Well turns out my hospital doesn't do walking epidurals.

They also like to give an anti nausea/anti-itch medication that makes your original anesthesia wear off quicker. What they do is after your spinal or epidural, they do the surgery. Right when the sew you up they give you demerol in your i.v.

Planned section is sooo much easier than an unplanned one.
