Re: anyone have surgery while pregnant?

I had my appendix out at 15 weeks with my oldest. I was completely under also .They had considered a spinal block type anesthesia but chose to put me under when I told them I wanted to watch LOL.
They kept me for 4 days even though it is usually an outpatient procedure now. They checked on baby every couple of hours and I had an ultrasound every day I was there. They had me on morphine for pain and sent me home with motrin and percocet for pain which I didn't need once I got home. I think it was because no one was coming in pushing on my belly every couple of hours at home.
No adverse effects on me or baby. Except I have a scar on my belly that is worse than it should be because my belly stretched at the same time my incision was healing.
