  • hi i might be having one too, and im pretty scared but just like you my first was a very long labour so i know that if i do have to have one it will be quick with no contractions and no pushing so there is at least that to look forward to, i suppose whatever way you do it there are always good and bad things about it, i suggest just go with the flow cos stressing yourself out will only make it seem so much worse, just think of the end result, thats what im going to do, hope all goes well
  • Hi - i had my first 6 weeks ago by emergency section cos she was breach ( had elective booked but she decided to come early).

    I didnt feel the needle or anything - was really sore for a few days whe up and about & the bleeding after was terrible but i'm not the kind of person to stay in bed so i've been really active & have been absolutely fine.

    I was terrified before too but have to say i would not hesitate to have section again!
