Respose to Ebony

People say that to me all of the time, the fact of the matter is that most women do not want c-sections and have to it for saftey reasons. I personally have never heard of someone opting for one or a doctor just suggesting one cause they have plans later. I always feel inadequate when people make that statement to me. I am preganat with nubmer two now and still have no choice and have to have a c-section. Sorry about the rant its just a touchy subject for me.

    I've had 2 c-sections. It takes a lot to recover from them. You should be on bed rest for almost a month afterwards. You will need help, you shouldn't be moving around and possibly causing harm to your incision.

      Don't worry, Lindsay, the only thing you missed out on is some very battered privates! You're a mom just the same as all the others (and this comes from somebody who had 3 kids vaginally, the last without any epidural or any "assistance" medically)

      My first was breech and literally suction-cupped to the inside of my ribcage and swallowed fluid. My 2nd was too big. I am a small person anyway, 5ft tall and 110lbs my body can't handle much. I do get offended when people make assumptions or judge because I've had c-sections. I could have tried to do natural labor with my 2nd one but I was told it could do harm to me and him so why chance it.
