do you know how much blood you lost during your c/s

I had a c/s with my first. I just came across my nurse's report. I was listed as losing 800cc's of blood. Anyone else know how much they lost? I read that around 500cc is normal. Over 1000cc is really dangerous.

They also wrote that I had a disporportoned pelvis. I have gone on to have two vaginal births one with a baby bigger then the one I was c/s for.

Re: do you know how much blood you lost during your c/s

800cc is pretty normal for a section. A hemmorage is considered anything over 500 for vag. and 1000 for a section.

No, not sure I want to know. All I can say is "apparantly" I lost a lot of blood with my Vbac and needed a transfusion, but I didn't with my c/s. So you never know.

My DH just kept going on about how much blood there was, of course I told him to shut up and why would I possibly want to know(yes, I wipe out the bad stuff).

Re: do you know how much blood you lost during your c/s

Not sure, but I'd be curious. I didn't get a transfusion, but it was apparently close to needing one. I sprayed blood across the room though. The nurse who had been with me beforehand and was with me after was across the room at when blood started spraying looked like shed been in a horror film when we came out of the OR. They attributed it taking a week for my milk to come in to all the blood I'd loss... Not that anyone mentioned that to me until day 5 when my DS was 12% down from birthweight, and I was a mess thinking id never be able to nurse him. Thankfully one of my nurses mentioned they'd discussed the idea of it being due to blood loss at their morning staff mtg, which helped me to persevere and keep trying to nurse DS.

I don't know ~ first c/s no transfusion. Second c/s I had a transfusion & freaked everyone out. The hubs was tossed out & when the doc took out my staples he said he was glad they didn't loose me. I am really scared for this time around.

It was around 400ccs. They said I didn't lose much at all.
