    I am pregnant with my second child. My first child was born by cesarean section under general anesthesia because of fetal distress. For this second baby, I will be having another cesarean, but my doctor told me that he would rather I have a spinal anesthetic than go to sleep. My question is this: Are there any side effects from a spinal? The thought of a needle going near my spine is quite scary!
