C-section or natural birth?

Our bodies were made for giving birth naturally, but sometimes things just don't pan out that way. In my specific case, my blood pressure was rising. I still had 2 weeks until Charlie was born, but my OB had me come in just so they could monitor me for an hour or so. I had no signs of labor whatsoever but she didn't like what my blood pressure was doing (I was even on bp meds). After 2 days of trying to induce with no luck, she made the call to do a c-section. There are a lot of medical reasons that your doctor may choose to do a c-section. Either way, in the end when you're holding that beautiful baby, it won't matter which exit they took :)
