Pregnancy after spinal fusion

Hi everyone!
I am pregnant with our first (yay!!!) and we are so excited! However, after a horrible wreck a year and a half ago where I fractured my back in multiple places, I had to have a spinal fusion. I am fused from T11-L4 and have almost two feet of titanium between rods, screws, Etc... 
I already know and expect that I am going to be in a lot of pain, and the doctor says that I may have to have a c-section because there was nerve damage and he doesn't know if I will be able to push. 
I am so scared of what to expect! He's classified me as high-risk because of this. Are there any other bionic women preggo out there who can put my mind at ease?! I will be 9 weeks tomorrow, due mid-June. 
Thank you!
