    To lilydreams ... ummm ... you did read she said she was having a C-Section, right? How exactly do you "try not to take the medication until it's unbearable?"

    i had a breech c-section...you should be fine. just try to not take the medication unless its UNBEARABLE. try to move around a lot and stuff afterward. but go slowly...just remember that you are stronger than the pills. you dont need them. just ignore the pain until its riddiculous and even though they say you can take 2 take just 1 to take the edge off...or even half of one. and anyway, wether you take the meds or not youll have to deal with the pain. so the way i see it is the sooner you deal with it the sooner itll go away, and the sooner you wont have to worry anymore...and the anesthesia i dont think will be a problem.

    i had no problem. i just know that i have my priorities strait and that i know what comes first. it was not that hard for me but i just looked beyond the cravings and realized that god was there to help me and give me the strength th ti needed to get by for the couple of days that it takes to get over it. so just be strong. you can do it.
