I had an emergency C-section last yr. They quickly did the epidural but it didn't work! I felt the poking on my abdomen. So they had to put me under general anesthesia. I missed my son being born and so did my husband (he wasnt allowed in the room because of this). My doctor told me I have to have another C-section because its so soon. And I'm scared the epidural won't work again and I'll have to miss out on this baby's birth too! EDIT: When I did finally meet my son. I was so groggy and out of it (I'm assuming it was because of the G.A) It wasn't how I wanted to be at all!!
