they used to say around here that they recommended being sterilised at the same time as having your 3rd CS.and you were developing too much scar tissue.......as the operations are neater nowadays that might have changed......

Good luck Nessie....

Miffi.I hadn't thought about the first photos of the baby.........maybe if my eldest had been born by a Csection then he wouldn't have come out looking like a Klingon from star trek

I think what actually happened in those first photos of baby was that they were a true and accurate record of what my baby looked like in those moments after delivery.  The perfect and flawless complexioned baby was only in the eyes of an instantly besotted mother.    One of my inlaws babies had a long and strenuous delivery and she had a head shaped like a peanut for months and months. 

Blimey Nessie, thats interesting about not inducing labour after a previous C-section.   I sincerely wish they hadn't because I had contraction upon contraction right from the off, no gentle build up, but everything stayed clamped firmly shut.   And they were wrong about the size of him so no need to have induced anyway.

Having been induced first time, Miffi, I can sympathise.  Going from a standing start to 30 seconds between the end of one contraction and the start of the next in a matter of 3 hours isn't fun.  How they managed to get the needle in for the epidural is still a mystery to me.

You mean when they take away the gas and air and tell you to sit very still!!

With you having a planned C section this time have they given you the option of taking in music to have playing when baby is delivered?

That's the one!  I think Imust have had enough gas and air to give me a small window of being able to sit still.........  I did bite the end off the tube at one point.

I must read the notes re the music thing - although I think it would just annoy me.  Or make hubby blub if it was anything moving.............

Ah, what a wonderful warm and fluffy moment KK.

Personally I always thought that the epidural sounds pretty horrendous in itself. Lets stick a big needle in your spine while you're waiting for the next bout of pain to come, and if it all goes wrong you'll still have the pain or have something wrong with your back (potentially long term). That's assuming the anaesthatist is available during the window when you're deemed to be in "enough" pain to need one, but not in so much that they can't do it.

Inductions sound horrible, and I've never heard of a good reason why they use them, when they have caesarians available.

I don't think caesarians are a walk in the park, but I'd rather have that than be left to my own devices because there aren't enough midwives. I've already decided I'd want to have someone there who is trained the whole time (midwife or doula), and I'll happily pay for them to be there. I'd also happily pay the extra for a caesarian if I decided I wanted one, but didn't have a good medical reason for one. I do think being scared witless for most of your pregnancy can't be good for the baby and therefore could be a good clinical reason for an elective.

One day my OH might convince me that kids are a good idea, but at the moment there seems to be more negatives than positives about the whole business.
