Rather, it was the epidural - some issues surrounding it and also the side effects - that really got to me.
Sometimes, I wonder if it's our expectations that lead us to be relaxed or fearful. My mother had me and my elder brother by induced labour, and she said everything went smoothly - nothing to worry about. So, I wasn't unduly worried about undergoing induced labour. But people who heard "horror stories" of how others went for induction, their cervix didn't open enough and they had to go for emergency c-section, might become stressed and anxious about the procedure and therefore result in a self-fulfilling prophecy? Just thinking out loud here.
A caveat, though: "jaundice is more likely to occur in babies who lose a lot of weight right after delivery, in babies who have diabetic mothers, and in babies who arrived via induced labour" (from the book, "What To Expect The First Year"). I'm diabetic and my baby was induced. Seeing him undergo phototherapy was pretty horrifying.
I heard that buy from 3 months is ok cos baby really grow very fast I deliberately also buy slightly bigger size in case he overgrow cos till now no idea of his size... Plus I even had clothes meant from 1 years old which is hands down haha...
I was given some pics taken by the anaesthetist during the op. There was 1 of baby 1/2 out of my tummy.
I never tried GA before cos I kiasi, I scared sleep then dont wake up, LOL!!!
that is also why i prefer gleneagle than Thomson Medical Center cos all the weighting and tagging is done IN the delivery ward unlike Thomson Medical Center must bring baby out of delivery ward...but too bad my gynae prefer Thomson Medical Center than gleneagle so no choice i am stuck with Thomson Medical Center but since i am going C sect so not much diff
i'm off to hospital in a couple of hours for my C sect ...wish me luck
