  • VBAC...

    Healing time is way easier and you don't have your stomach cut open.

  • Go for the natural birth, it is like night and day and the recovery is a lot quicker.

  • definitely go with a vbac. There are more risks for you and baby with a c-sec!

  • @ PURPULbutterfly: Your vagina will not "get all loose". Damn, I had a natural birth and my SO cannot fit inside hardly. It is actually tighter. You are notorious for spouting the most insane answers ever. I sure wish you would do some reading and researching on topics before you regurgitate your insane made-up juvenile thoughts.

  • I had 3 vaginal births and then a csection with my 4th. I'm opting for another planned csection with this one, but that's just my personal choice. I liked the csection a whole lot better - I wasn't so worn out from labor and could actually spend time with my son in recovery rather than just wanting to sleep/rest. Yes, the recovery is longer but I have tons of family (mine and dh's) in town to help, plus my dh will be off work for a while after the birth.

  • Me personally, I would say v-bac because of how many problems the c-section caused me. My doctor told me with this pregnancy he will support anything I decide (c-section or v-bac) but he would recommend another c-section because he doesn't want to risk putting the baby through the stress and he doesn't think i will be able to push out a baby bigger than 6-7 pounds.
