  • I haven't had any.. but the question "would you have another", you really don't have a choice.

  • I had one not by choice. My DD got stuck and so it was an emergency c-section. and NO I' d like not to have one again but I may have no choice in that.

  • I had to deliver at 33 weeks due to severe preeclampsia. Inducement drugs caused fetal distress, so I had a c-section.

    I'm done with having kids, but if I had another child, I would do the c-section again. It's hard to find a dr or hospital that will do a vbac.

  • 3. First one was after a day of labor and baby not wanting to go down the birth canal (fully dilated). second, and third...because I felt like it and it was easier for me and my ob-gyn. She has a lot of shopping and golfing to do, OK!?!?! If I could have more children, I would but I made the choice to tie my tubes up because 3 children is enough.

  • I've had 5 (in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2006 and 2010) and, yeah, if by some miracle I got pregnant again I would have to have another. I had my tubes tied, though, so hopefully that won't happen.
    I have a really narrow pelvis. All 5 were planned.
