I've been thinking about this a lot. My C-Section was partially elective partially because they thought she was getting too big. Honestly, it was my first and I was scared out of my mind and although I was induced and went through some "labor", eventually the pitocin stopped creating contractions and I ended up with a C section. I don't regret it, but the recovery was a lot harder than I expected. Not that I couldn't do it again and although I do fear vaginal birth because I don't know what it would be like, it sounds like such a better alternative. I just hear the recovery is a lot better and I just don't know if I want to deal with another major surgery. That's what I feel like people forget, it's not just "having a baby" it's a surgery and a big one. When we decide if and when to try for #2 I am going to talk to my OB about it. I don't really see why I would need a C Section if everything is going smoothly with my pregnancy and the baby isn't in distress.
