Hello, my name is Jaycee. I am 14, and 31 weeks pregnant with twin girls! The father will take a part of their lives and I have support from all of my friends and family. I just have two questions for you moms, Does a C-Section hurt? And if so, how bad? I'm very scared to get one, due to the matter of how bad it will hur but they wat it looks, I have no other option.

And all the support you have from your friends? Don't count on it lasting once they realize that babies are noisy, and a ton of work. Sure they swear up and down now that they'll be there to help you...but in my experience teens don't hang around long. They want to go out and have fun, just like you should be doing at 14. I agree with the other mothers, you shouldn't be having sex.
The c-section is major abdominal surgery and it will hurt, but you will have medication to help with the pain. For your health, the babies health and the cost savings I really encourage you to breastfeed as much as you can.

I agree with Dove. At this point, I'd be worrying less about the actual birth and the pain you may have for a few weeks than I would be about how you are going to parent these babies for the next 18 years - THAT will be the hard part.

Oh crap... I just now read the 'I'm 14 part'. Dang kid! Having sex at your age?! Yeah... good luck parenting twins for the next 18 years. I was 25 when my girls were born and they are 14 today... and THAT is a heck of a lot harder (and sometimes more painful) than giving birth.

The c-section doesn't hurt, but the recovery does. Of course... recovery from all birth is painful. I have no personal idea what recovery from a vaginal delivery is like, but I have had two c-sections.

My c-section w/ my twins was not scheduled. It was a semi-emergency because trying to get me to go into 'real' labor in the hospital caused baby B to be distressed... She was also stuck bad in my ribs, so having a c-section very likely saved her life. It was quite a rough recovery, but it had also been quite a rough pregnancy.

My c-section w/ my son was a scheduled repeat and was a breeze to recover from compared to my earlier recovery. I was on my own w/ two 6 year olds and a newborn from the day I got out of the hospital (3 days old). It was rough, but 99.9% of that had nothing to do w/ the c-section recovery.

If you were so worried about what a c-section looked like, maybe you should have waited to have sex. Seriously, I get so frustrated when I hear young girls are out having sex but then can't cop the consequences. At 14, your body is still underdeveloped. The c-section is necessary, by the sounds of it, because of this. It won't hurt at the time, but yes, there will be pain afterwards. I've never had one - I chose to give birth naturally. There's pain with that too. Having babies is painful, end of story. From my understanding, a natural birth is less painful in the long term than a c-section, but never having had a c-section, I couldn't confirm that.

If you are concerned about the c-section scar, well, you are going to need to just get over it. You can recover, it will just take time, and maybe, once your baby is here, your scar will be worn with a badge of pride.
