I just got a call from Alicia about her appt…Here’s what they said:
One question we had was how long she’ll be in the hospital. The doctor said that for a C-Section she will be in there for 3 days. Alicia is going in on Thursday and will be home by Saturday. They really want you in and out!
Alicia’s biggest question was she wanted to make sure she wasn’t going to be so drugged out during the C-Section. With Christian she was falling asleep and didn’t remember anything of his birth. The doctor said that with an emergency C-Section they use general anesthesia, with this one, since it’s not an emergency, they will do a spinal tap. Alicia will be numb from the waist down but still be coherent.
The doctor asked Alicia how she was feeling and she told them about the constant headaches, backaches and high blood pressure. She takes what she can for the pain but nothing works. The doc seemed a little concerned about it and asked her to come back tomorrow to get blood and urine test done to make sure there isn’t serious.
Also, she goes on Monday for her next appt and an ultrasound to see how the baby is laying.
