Yes, I imagine getting that baby off of your bladder will help a LOT!

I actually had a wonderful c-section experience...probably as good as it gets. I'd still choose the VBAC I know this isn't what you asked, but I will share briefly another reason...

With the c-section, there was a bit of a disconnect for me with the birth. I know that my little girl came out of me, but I couldn't see it. DH watched over the curtain and described every gory detail, but I felt like birth was something happening to me, not something I was participating in. I don't know exactly how to describe it except that I just felt like something was missing...I couldn't connect all the dots between being pregnant and being a Mommy. The VBAC was totally different...I felt every moment and my journey felt very complete after the babies were born. The doctors were there to help us, but I did it...I'm so glad that I was able to experience that.
