hmm.. actually after c-sect i still can 'sit up' to carry my baby up, even when the nurse taught me hw to bf, i also able to carry him up right in front of my breast. cos was seated on the bed, so was quite ok.. =)
IMHO, both GA n epi got pros n cons lahhh.. some ppl said epi will cause shivering and vomiting (or giddiness also)? if the side effects comes, also diffi for the mummy to bf.. for GA, yes will feel giddy when you wake up. some ppl might feel giddy for 1 whole day. but depends on individual. like i said, once i woke up i realyy woke up, the nurses and even my gynae were all shocked. cos i took a very long time to KO after being 'GA' and after waling up, still looks very alert. haha
and also, if you;re timid type, no point forcing yourself to choose epi.. my anest told me he really hope i choose epi but after talking to me, he feel that if i choose epi, will en up he need to give me one more shot of GA in btwn to c-sect. cos he said he can feel that i was VERY nervous. and he told my gynae i better stick to GA. haha! But for #2, i really feel lik trying epi or even VBAC if can =)
all these (choosing GA or EPI, the side effects one might suffered from) really really depends on individual.. haha..
[quote=apollo;456733]for GA cannot.. cos you will be sleeping alrdy, hub go in to acc who? haha.. i took GA and my hub was at the waiting area waiting for baby..
THATS TRUE! What was I thinking?
I still dont understand why people said if go for EPI C-sect, it's not that painful compare to GA C-sect and able to recover faster if go thru EPI C-sect.
Aren't both the same which need to "cut up"?
But my gynae said its a better choice to choose GA as some people half way thru EPI C-Sect, they start to get nervous and diff to calm down.
but to me, correct EPI can last longer but end of the day, still will pain mahhhh.. hahahahahaha....
i seriously cannot imagine having c-sect , i rem i used to watch alot of discovery and health documentry on baby's birth day, and they actually showed the entire process where mummy went thru epi-c-sect...just hope i dont need to have to go thru it...
yah, my hubby says im crazy, so scared still watch...i feel the scary part is when doc tries to take the baby out... and the mummy was saying i can feel the pressure...but watever it is, i feel for those who went thru c-sect w/o GA super brave!
