FTR- I have had 3 c-births, first was planned, second was hoping to VBAC, and last one was planned. When opened this last time, I had started to rupture, OB feels scarring is too bad to have more children But, without c-births I wouldn't have any of my beautiful children, so I am very thankful and finally completey at peace with all of my births
I also love having these support threads, I feel that it is so important to be able to talk about c-births in a supportive place with educated women, and give information, get information, and hug each other through it all

We are done having children. We have had 4 pregnancies in under 3 years of marriage and I just can't do it again. I know it sounds wimpy but I'm done.
Is it odd to say that I jsut feel like we are complete?

I am scared about the epidural, what if it goes up instead of down, what if only one side of me goes numb? What if the doctor does it wrong and I wind up paralyzed? I am terrified about feeling the incision, the pulling and tugging, the pressure. What if I don't go numb, what if I feel it all.
I had general anesthesia because I contracted HELLP syndrome and they had to do an emergency C-section. One of the symptoms of HELLP is that I had no platelets to clot my blood, and they were afraid if they did a spinal, I would bleed into my spinal column and wind up paralyzed. So they did a general and also gave me a classical incision, so I have to have sections from now on.
edited to add: I'm not even pregnant yet, but just thinking about an epidural has me crying at the computer. I am such a wimp.

one question for you all: when did you get up and walk after your c/b? (i keep reading that it should be within 24 hours ) Also, The Books say that the first c/b is the hardest to recover from and it just gets easier after that. any truth to this?
