I had a vaginal birth with my first child and am now pregnant with my second. I have had several friends who had c sections and they said it was the way to go. I am not sure which route I want to take! I must say that my vaginal birth was just awful. My epidural ran out and had to be redone 3 times (trying being 9cm along and having to sit still for a needle, ha). I also was vomiting for 2-3 hours and had to wear an oxygen mask the last 2 hours. 16 hours later I had my beautiful daughter but I am so afraid to go through that again. I know labor in general is not easy but I just want to have my baby and hold him, without all the pain and suffering I went through. This was less than a year ago, so maybe that is why I remember so much. But any comments or thoughts?
The doctors don't want to do a c section unless its absolutely necessary and I think that is because I am diabetic. I know recovering is harder but I from what I have heard is that it's not as hard as it used to be. I appreciate any thoughts to help me with this!
