Advice needed.
This is my 3rd baby. I'm due in about 4 weeks.
Dr. actually tore me w my 1st baby, weighed 7lb 11oz.
Episiotomy w my 2nd, weighed 8lb 9oz...
My question is, because of how badly I healed after the episiotomy 6 years ago, I still experience pain w sex or too much excercise/heavy chores etc. Should I push for a csection this time? Wouldnt be till after 39 weeks. Since I'm planning on getting my tubes tied anyways, or just deliver vaginal again. Im just afraid of doing more damage down there and having to heal from a TEAR AND a TUBAL at the same time.
Thanks in Advance

Thanks so much for your input.
I've talked with my Dr and we both agreed let'splan on vaginal. It feels like the better way to go. Ge said he would let me tear naturally this time but that I may not tear at all. :)
Knowing what to expect as far as pain and recovery from a vaginal is way less stressful than worrying about a c-section.
Thanks again for the input. I'll do vaginal and hope for the best ❤
