I just had my second c section and the pain is awful! It's very difficult to enjoy baby, breastfeed, get up, etc. If you are wanting an elective c section, please reconsider! I wish I could have had the vbac I wanted, but baby's lack of movement had the doc concerned, I was not dilating, which doc attributes to my heart shaped uterus, which I didn't know I had. My blood pressure dropped to 66/30 during the surgery. Very scary!
I forgot to add that there was an area on my belly about as big around as a closed fist that didn't go numb, so the tugging and pulling to get baby out was very uncomfortable.
