My bp got very low after they gave me my epidural w/Dalton. All of a sudden I felt very nauseas and very weird. My bottom number had dropped to the 30's!! They just flipped me from side to side and it was ok..very scary though.

Congrats! Glad all is well. My BP also dropped during c-sec which they told me would happen (didn't happen with Isaiah, tho'). Dakotah is a great name!

Congratulations - what a great result. BTW, the aneasthetic can make your BP drop - mine did, repeatedly in my last section, so much so that they had to keep giving me something to stop me throwing up from it.

I had my precious little man on 01/27/06 @ 8:56pm. He was 7lbs 1/2 ounce and 19 1/2 inches long. I ended up with a Casarean. My blood pressure was awesome (Actually during the C-Section my blood pressure was getting to low-How crazy is that) The C-Sec was harder on my husband then it was myself-During the procedure I was wiping his forehead with a wash cloth. Once I heard that unforgettable cry I knew all was good. So...Better go take care of Dakotah. Once I figure out how to post pictures I will post some. He is beautiful!

I'm new here but I thought I'd go ahead and tell me 2 cents. I was induced at 36 1/2 weeks due to PE and my delivery went fine. It was only 4 hours total and I only pushed about 3 times. My little guy was READY to come out! So don't believe all the horror stories that you hear.

Good luck!!!!
