  • I have read, and I am praying it's true, that the 2nd c-sections, and those after that aren't as painful as the first.
    I am coming up on my second too. I know what to expect this time, so I am really nervous!!!

  • Well my second on I think hurt less but took longer to heal. My I was a single mom and was only 21 my second one (but 3rd child) I was 27 and was a single mom somewhat. My husband came home two weeks for R&R and then went back to Iraq for 8 months. I don't know if those are factors in it or not. I also nursed all my kids. I hope that helps you.

  • I agree; hurt less the second time, I didn't even take the pain pills prescribed to me. However, my stitch took longer to heal...
