  • my lil one was only 6lbs, and yep I had a 3rd degree tear. She came out with her little hand on her head which is what made me tear. ugh, so glad i'm all healed up now it was awful.

  • 8lbs 9oz....started to tear forward, so she did an episiotomy.

    9lbs 5oz....slight tear, 3 stitches I think

    7lbs (36 weeker)...no tear or anything.

  • I had an episiotomy with both... My kids were 9lbs 8ozs and 8lbs 4ozs... Episiotomys are just automatic with most hospitals anymore. Ther aren't any big deal though. It's better than tearing would be...
