Hi Sis. Don't be afraid kasi deliveries via CS are essentially painless. Although I could be the exception to the rule kasi I immediately felt the soreness while I was at the recovery room still. Twice nagdagdag ng painkillers ang anesthesiologist ko kasi sobrang baba ng tolerance ka for pain.

I wasn't actually expecting to give birth via CS, although si hubby yun ang inexpect dahil daw sa laki ng tyan ko. My OB decided on it kasi term na ako but my cervix was still closed. Bumaba na din to 7.49 yung AFI ko. If she decided to induce me daw chances are it'll only fail kasi di din bumababa ang baby kasi may cord coil kami. Naging hypertensive pa ako 2hours before my operation. I was on medication for a month after I gave birth because of hypertension. But all's well. I gave birth to a 7.5lb baby boy. And after 7 months, both of us are thriving. So don't be anxious, sis. Prayers lang ang katapat ng worries mo. God bless. ;)

I experienced both normal and cs delivery and I would say na mas tolerable yun pain ng CS for me. During my 2nd delivery, we're all expecting na i'll be giving birth normally pero na-cord coil si baby and beginning abruptio placenta pa kaya na-emergency CS ako. Bikini cut ginawa ng OB ko. After mag-wear off ng anesthesia saken, nagchill ako ng sobra sa recovery room. Yung pain, tolerated ng oral analgesics.

Wag ka mashado ma-tense. Just pray na maging safe ang delivery mo and healthy si baby. God bless!

@jenskie: i have a bikini cut, sis. But i suggest that you get the traditional one kasi it heals faster daw. Yun nga lang di ka na makakapag bikini. Hehe. I was actually shaking from the pain, sis. Not to scare you pero nasaktan talaga ako nung 2nd time na naramdaman ko yung pain while at the recovery room palang. As in nagmomoan na ako na masakit kaya nataranta din yung attendants sa pagtawag sa anesthesiologist ko. Pero di naman kasi yan normally nangyayari, sis. Talagang mababa lang tolerance ko for pain kaya ganun. After nun ok naman na lahat. No pain na except for the occasional kurot pag umuulan. ;)

@jenskie: btw, sis it's normal na magchills ka immediately after your operation. Effect yan ng pagwear off ng anesthesia. But you're not supposed to feel any pain or discomfort. Mga 12-14 hours after the procedure you'll be given oral anesthetics para wala kang pain. Lahat naman ng friends ko na CS din walang pain talaga. Ako lang ang exception kaya wag ka matakot, sis.

^i stood up siguro after mga 18-20hours after the operation. Dun ako mejo nahirapan, sis kasi nagmanas talaga ako. So aside from the stiffness and numbness due to the anesthesia sobrang bigat din ng legs ko because of water retention. Mga 3days din siguro yun na mabigat yung paa ko kaya mahirap maglakad.

CS ako sa 3 kids ko, my bunso is now 5 years old. Hay, gusto ko sana ng normal pero hindi ko daw carry. Triny dun sa panganay ko, pero after almost 20 hours na yata at blood loss, ayun CS pa din. and bikini cut ako, owede pa rin ako magbikini kasi sobrang baba talaga ng cut. Cool kasi yung OB ko. he!he! Andami ko kasi ding nakita na sa tummy cut, hmm, ampanget eh.
Pag CS,madali manganak except syempre sa 1st kid ko kasi naglabor ako ng bongga.
Medyo ang hates ko ng part yung 24 hours after ma CS, na groggy pa ako, at bawal pa ng water exceot damp damp lang sa lips, Ang boring kasi, tulog lang ng tulog. Pero  after that, need na agad mag stand up.
But the babies are worth the CS, : )

^alala ko nga sis na inaaway ko na nun si hubby tas mga nurses kasi gusto ko na uminom ng tubig pero bawal pa talaga. Pasip sip lang talaga muna. How many years po ang age gap ng kids nyo? Ideally daw kasi 3years apart although i have an officemate na 1year lang ang gap ng 2nd and 3rd kids nya. CS din naman sha.

Mga mommies, puro pala kayo bikini cut, gusto ko sana yun classic cut, kaya lang nawoworry ako kung ano difference ng sensation? Mas mahirap ba gumalaw kesa sa bikini cut? Saka mas mahirap ba tumayo kapag classic cut? Nahihirapan tuloy ako magdecide. :)

^ang alam ko lang sis mas mabilis daw magheal yung classic cut. Mas naiipit kasi sha ng binder unlike sa bikini cut na parang kalevel lang ng bottom part ng binder.

Sis, 1 year apart lang din yung 2nd and 3rd. yes, at least 3 years daw talaga ang dapat para magheal yung mga internal organs. dun sa 3rd ko, dahil hindi pa fully healed at nakaka recover mga organs, medyo nagdikit dikit na daw yung ibang organs(yung small at big intestines).

Yes sis, after ng CS operation bawal talaga muna uminom ng tubig in a normal way. dab dab lang water sa lips para mawala dryness kaya dahil dun itinutulog ko na lang para hindi ako magcrave ng water at food.He!he!he!
at ang nareremember ko talaga ng husto ay sobrang lamig pag cini CS.dahil daw kasi sa gamot.

Ako sis, im really happy sa bikini cut. Kasi pag classic cut lalo na at keloidal ka, naku medyo hindi ok. Nakaklosyang yung itsura.
Although,yes,mas madali magheal yung classic cut kasi andun rin ang fats natin eh.Yung sa bikini kasi, medyo lean part na yun,walang fats kaya mas matagal ang healing pero carry lang.
Much better na you have a conversation re the cs cut kung bikini or classic sa ob-gyne mo.Kasi you will carry it na for life. at kung san ka ni-cut  for your first cs, dun na din yung susunod.
Althiugh yung sa bunso ko nga, medyo nahirapan ako agad tumayo kasi medyo masakit. I need tuloy to take meds for the pain for 2 weeks. Pero sa 1st at 2nd kids, madali ako nakatayo agad.
Pag CS,yung actual birthing,walang pain. tulog lang ako.ha!ha! Pero yung recovery  lang ang mas mahirap ng slight.Pero tolerable. and then a few months after,lalo na at malamig, medyo kumikirot yung sa CS cut. Saka pag nahahatsing also, nararamdaman ko sa cut. Pero tolerable. Not that bothersome naman.

sana ako less pain kapag na-wear off na un anaestesia, feeling ko kasi mababa ang threshold ko sa pain. Bikini cut na ata talaga ang uso. Asawa ko gusto nya classic cut, irregardless of aesthetic purposes ng mga bikini. Nawoworry kasi sya sakin baka hindi ko raw makaya after ng surgery.

Sana meron din magpost about kung classic cut sila. :)

Yung ate ko, classic cut.Pero yun nga panget.he!he! Sa hubby ko din naman,oks lang kung classic pero ako kasi maarte. Sis, hindi naman masakit as in masakit talaga. peeo kung feeling mo talagang mababa nag treshold mo sa pain,then go sa classic cut, : )!
Saka yung pain or kung masakit after recovery, mild lang. not excruciating pain. 
May mga officemates din ako na classic cut, pero yun nga,inggit sila sa bikini cut ko. Pero yung sa akin kaartehan lang talaga eh. He!he!

Mga mommies, i just had my last check up with my OB today. Sabi ko ano ba preferred nya, sabi niyo if sya raw she'll do bikini cut sakin. Pero ganun ba talaga sis? parang isang dangkal ang hiwa? parang 4 inches ata yun. Hindi ba mahirap umupo kapag bikini cut?

Bikini cut din ako. I like it better than the classic cut (my mom's). I noticed lang pahaba ng pahaba hiwa ng bikini cut ko everytime ma-CS ako. I'm now with my fourth child so my ob told me to expect a longer cut... hay...

^ hindi naman mahirap umupo with bikini cut. don't be tensed din. with my first CS experience, after 2-3 weeks, ok na ako. Parang thing of the past na ang CS operation. Also, your doctor will prescribe painkillers for about a week or so para you won't feel the pain. Nag-chills din ako sa 2nd baby ko during recovery.

I also have same experience with sis k_heart. Pag medyo malamig, kumikirot yung sugat. But all bearable.
