If you don't mind...I'll post them again!!
1. What are the benefits of a walking epidural over a regular epidural (if there are any)
2. What pain meds to I have option over?
3. What things should I include in my birth plan? (this is for jsut in case)
My last c/b was good. I didn't have any of the horrific things happen that you hear about. So, I'm a little nervous this time around having heard the "bad" things that can happen.
Do you guys think this is silly. I'm going to make signs for my door when i'm at the bc or l&D that say... "Have you read my birth plan?" and one about not using the word pain inmy presence. (I trained the staff last time because I spent 9 months training myself to think of it as stretching!) I'll also make signs for no bath and no eye drops.
Ok, thats it for now. I have more but can't think right now. Thanks a lot!!!

for those of us who are having repeat c/bs soon (or has had one recently) - is anyone planning to wait for labor to start before they go into the operating room? (or, did you do this)
I.e., did you wait for your baby to tell you s/he was ready to come out before you went in for your repeat c/b, or did you just schedule it around week 39 (or whatever your doctor's policy is)?
I'm wondering about the merits of waiting for the baby to tell you that it's ready to come out before you go into surgery, versus scheduling a date when the baby may or may not be completely ready to come out.
Any input would be appreciated!
