This is not a debate and there really shouldn't be any drama. So with that said, how many are having a repeat c-section?

This will be my 3rd c-section and my last. I can't say I will miss them lol. I've had one traumatizing c-s and one perfectly smooth c-s, hoping this one will be the same as the 2nd.

4th and final C-section. My first was forced, my 2nd was supposed to be a vbac but it didn't work out. now because of scarring i have to have them. My first baby was my only vaginal birth. He weighed ten pounds...way too big for little bitty me.

This will be my 3rd c-section. My first was great, 2nd sucked, and I'm hoping this one goes well.

My doctor said I am good to go for a VBAC so fingers crossed on that! My DD was an emergency c/s at 25 weeks so not a very good experience.

My first was a c/s, and so far I have been lucky enough to not have a repeat. So I am aiming for my second VBAC

Do they cut through stomach muscle? How long does it take to heal? The thought of a c-section is really frightening to me.

I am hoping for my fourth successful VBAC. I had a C-section in 2006 b/c Baby"A" of my twinset was breech. I opted for VBAC's after that. I know it's a personal decision..for me VBAC was definately the way to go, but I get that for others it's not.
I am hoping for ALL of us that our births will go smoothly- vaginal or C section.

I am going natural. Not doing c-section if I can help it.

I am having my 4th repeat section! No choice here, as no one in my area does VBACs, however, I was told that my hips are really narrow for the size babies I've had, so even if VBACs were available, I wouldn't be a good candidate and would still need a repeat. They recoveries aren't so bad. My first was the worst because I'd labored for 30 hours beforehand.

I am not scheduling a c-section. My last was an emergency c-section. If I have to have another c-section then I will, but I hope that I can avoid that.

I hope those that want a vbac get them! That is the best case scenario

Kelly - The recovery really depends on the person. Some have a really bad recovery time while others have a quick smooth one. But it is major abdominal surgery, so you are going to feel it.

Bashas3 - Have you thought about the mirena/IUD instead of anything permanent?

My first was a vaginal birth. I am scared to death of having a c-section. Obviously, I'd do it if I needed to, but hoping for another vaginal birth this time. A c-section is major suergery so the risk are greater and the healing time is longer so I hear. .. scary stuff to me.

I had a c-section in 2009, so it's possible I will need another if complications arise. I'm hoping for my 2nd VBAC.

My first was an emergency c-section, this one will be a scheduled... It sucks that I had to have a c-section in the first place, but I only want 2 kids total so I'm not nervous about having another one (if I wanted more kids I would try for a vbac).

First one was an emergency c-section and I actually forgot to ask if because of that I will need one this time. But standard practice here is once you have had one you'll always have to. Some doctors are willing to try VBAC but by far the most aren't.

I honestly don't care, as long as the wee one gets safely out into the world.

This will be our 3rd (repeat) csection. I labored for far too long with first DD (my pelvic bones dont open wide enough even though I prog. to complete), ended up having an emerg. section; with our 2nd, knowing about my condition, we did a repeat. IMO, the 2nd was sooooo much easier to recover from, as I knew what to expect. I also worked out my entire pg, as opposed to my first, and I think that made all the difference

I've had a vaginal birth, a C-section, and a VBAC (which is really just another vaginal birth with a fun acronym). I know I was a rare case, but the recovery from my C-section was actually a lot easier than the recovery from my first vaginal birth. That first birth had a lot of vaginal trauma, and it was weeks before I could sit down without wanting to cry, and I developed some sort of uterine infection that just made everything harder.

After the C-section, I was feeling a lot better by the time I left the hospital - I didn't even fill my prescrption for pain meds, and just took Aleve - and even that wasn't needed after the first seven days post surgery. The day after I left the hospital I went to a birthday party for a friend's kid, and was perfectly comfortable sitting on the floor (and getting back up again).

So when it came time to choose my method of delivery for number 3, I really considered a C-section, just because the recovery was SO MUCH easier. I'm still not entirely sure why I chose the VBAC, but I'm glad I did because that birth was my easiest recovery yet.

I'm going to assume that I'm getting a VBAC this time. I won't schedule a C-section under any circumstances, but I will have one if it's needed.

Same here!! And I'm a weanie for pain!! I started refusing some of the pain meds in the hospital (I think vicodin or something? I still took ibuprofen) and my doctor told me to take all of them, but I really didn't need them! Like it felt sore, but like slightly sore and I didn't mind it because it reminded me to not jar the injury, you know?

they threatened me with a section after I pushed for an hour and a half with DD, but the nurse woudln't let me lay on my side and I kept telling them I needed to be on my side to push, I could just feel it. So when they threatened me, I told them to go fly a kite bc I wasn't having one. LoL. At that point the nurse finally agreed with me to lay on my side, and lo and behold DD was born 20 minutes later.

I would have a section if it was really necessary but I really just felt like my nurse sucked! LOL.
