In speaking with my doctor last night on the subject of possibly going into labor before my scheduled c-section, it got me thinking: would I want to try a vaginal birth if the baby was smaller than my first (DD was 8lbs 3oz) and labor was already starting?
First off, let me tell you that my first DD's labor was on the verge of horrible. I pushed for hours just to have a c-section that hurt like HELL. I thought I could never go through the pain of trying to push like that again though. Then this past weekend, I met up with my cousin and she told me that after she gave birth vaginally, there was this wave of relief from the pain- something that I did NOT have after my c-section. So now I'm pretty much undecided how I should do it if I go into labor before my scheduled date.
How was vaginal birth compared to c-section for you? Which did you prefer?
