  • I had a c-section the first time because it took too long for labor to progress after my water tore and I got an infection in the uterus. The second time I wanted a c-section because I had a fear that the uterus would rupture. And its a good thing I decided to because they told me the uterus was so thin they could see the baby before they even cut the uterus!

  • My first c-section was because the baby's umbilical cord was pinched and both of our heart rates dropped really low, the 2nd one came 1 year and 1 month later, and the doctor said it would be best for me to just have another one. The first one I thought was a big scare..and I didn't really mind it cuz i had no clue what was going on, the 2nd one I was scared to death over and I thought it was worse than the 1st. I hurt afterwards alot more with the 2nd than the 1st one. and before the c-sections I had 2 natural births, :)

  • My first was terrible also, I was afraid I would stand up and my insides would fall out. My second one was 9 years later and was a breeze. I don’t know if it had anything to do with the doctors or just knowing what to expect the second time around but the recovery time seemed so much easier.

  • I hear you CloverE me too and its no joke. i had to stay in the hospital five days with each one

    Answer by Yellowrose9 at 10:36 PM on Mar. 11, 2009

  • Yes, because I had to have the first and I chose the second. After seeing regular births in the hospital, I am so glad I had mine c-section!

  • Yes, two breech babies. The first one was born at 37 weeks, and I always wondered afterwards if he would have turned if I had waited longer. With the second one I had my answer, I waited until 40 weeks and she never turned either.
