So here is my super reduced quick birth story then I have a couple questions: Baby was measuring big. Went in to be
induced to prevent a C-section (I was scared to have one). Ended up
needing a C-section after 3 (THREE) failed epidurals, not progressing
past 6CM, having a fever and water being broke too long. During the
c-section I could NOT breathe at all. After they pulled him out and
showed him to me, I was knocked out and woke up 3 hours later.
Question 1: Has anyone had multiple failed epis? And have you learned why? I really never found out why and it's really weird to me. Each time I got the epi, it would work for maybe 30 minutes then I would start to regain all feeling. I had two different doctors do them too. I was SO SCARED about the C-section itself because I was worried I would regain feeling from the meds while being cut open.
Question 2: Has anyone had any similar experience as far as not being able to breathe well at all once on the table? And has anyone been put to sleep while they were getting the C-section? I don't even remember them telling me they would do it. It's possible they did but I don't remember. I think the dosed me up too much because I couldn't breathe because I
felt numb up to my chest. However, I couldn't feel a THING, not even
