It happens alot with C-sections
Yikes, but with a csection, aren't you 'awake' from the waist up, so couldn't you say "OUCH, I FELT THAT"?????
I'm 8 mos preg, and most likely will have a csec.
please don't scare the hell out of me like that! :)

I didn't mean to scare you .. I guess I shouldn't have used the word alot
I'm not sure of all the different procedures
My sisters were knocked out and weren't fully wake even though they knew what was going on.
Theirs were emergency c-sections and the drugs didn't kick in time.
And don't worry .. I am sure all will be find with you and the baby .. and Congrats

Heh, heh, heh... The wife was three weeks late and had an absolutely massive belly when the doctor scheduled her for a c-section. She was prepped and given an epidural (sp?) and wheeled into the operating room. She kept asking how long it would take before she was numb and the doctors laughed about it (they figured she "thought" she was feeling things but obviously couldn't). I was standing at her side when the doctor made his first cut and she immediately flinched and yelled, "OUCH!"
The doctors all stopped and looked at her. Her doctor asked, "You could FEEL that?!"
She said, "YEAH, I was telling you I could still feel everything!"
The next thing I knew they told me to give my wife a kiss and wish her luck as they hurried me out of the room and started putting her under.
Everything turned out fine as she delivered our 10-1/2 pound son (our first of two kids) but she was a little bummed because by the time she woke up, all the parents and closest relatives had already met our new baby.
