This will be my third. YES, they were all medically necessary so don't bash about that. Anyways, baby will come at 38 or 39 weeks.... I'm just nervous with number 3.
Is the recovery harder?

I've had 3 c-sections. #2 and #3 were failed VBAC and I was awake and the recovery was fine. So don't be afraid of that at all. I don't happen to think you need another c-section. I wouldn't be at all surprised to find out that the reason that you weren't able to deliver after 38 hour was medical interference. And I don't understand if your second was alive or already passed when they choose to do the c-section, but fear is such a big factor in the decision to VBAC or schedule a c-section and I understand that. And I went for labor with my second and my third so they picked their birthdays.Â And were ready! Would have loved to have pushed them out!

I had three....no two was the worst.. No 3 was pretty easy. Funny, a nurse told me once that the second was always the worst one on a woman, and I found that very true. You will be fine. Concentrate on that beautiful package you will be bringing home!

One more thing....like one of the PP's said, there is a very good chance that your first emergency c-section was not due to your baby's size, but a result of medical interventions. CPD is extremely overdiagnosed, but one of the most common "reasons" for c-section. Check out this video...it just goes to show that doctors are often wrong. Good luck mama!!
