I have been lurking on this board for a while and have been on the fence between RCS and VBAC almost my entire pregnancy. We have decided to go for a RCS for many reasons and I am okay with it.
My son was born via C/S after a LONG labor which included 2 failed epi placements, fever, high BP and ended with me being put to sleep for the surgery and DH being forced out of the OR. I woke up in recovery with the worst pain in my life b/c it wasn't communicated to the recovery staff that my epi had failed and I had no pain meds in me whatsoever. When I finally got that under control I found out that my son was 9 lbs. 14 oz. and 22 3/4 inches long. Recovery from there really wasn't bad at all considering what my body had been through.
SOOOO, here I am 8 weeks out from RCS with number 2 and I am at peace with it but also a little scared. It has really, really helped seeing the success C/S stories on here.
Thanks for listening!
