I had a horrible 1st labour, sort of easy pregnancy once I got over the all day/nite vomitting, and now am scared of having another one. We've said at the end of this year to start trying, but I'm scared, actually petrified.
I don't want another labour like last one, things worked out ok in the end, but what if next time we're not so lucky.
I haemmoraged pretty bad and had to go to surgery to stop the bleeding and remove the placenta and had 6 bags of blood put back in me and couldn't move for nearly 3 days. I felt utterly useless, everyone had to do everything for me as I couldn't bear to even sit up, as my blood pressure was so low, my head would just spin.
Has anyone had a similar experience and then had another birth? Or did the docs offer a ceasar?
I was 5 mins off being prepared for a emergency ceasar when the mighty vac finally pulled my daughter out!!
Speaking of her, she must be having a nightmare, she's awake. Better go. Bye
