So I went to my first prenatal visit today. Everything was going fine until my Dr. said that because I had stage 4 lacerations with my son, he didn't recommend me having any further vaginal deliveries. That if I did he wasn't sure that he/they'd be able to fix me down there all the way if I ripped like that again. And then he tells me it's my choice. I read the magazines and all but I've also heard the horror stories and I dunno what to do. And I feel like I've failed because of it, I mean really - I'm only 22. It's not the same and part of me is, admittedly, disappointed and hurt. Any ideas or advice? And is C-Section really THAT bad?

No, I've had two. I was up and walking around about 4 hours after my second c section. Healed faster than my gf who had a vaginal delivery. I know many people think C sections are bad, but I don't think I'd ever want to go through another vaginal delivery after being ripped open like that.
