natural that burns! It doesn't just hurt but it BURNS!!!!
I had an epidural but they turned it off so I felt everything. It only took three pushes and 10 minutes but that was more than enough for a lifetime.

I've never had a vaginal delivery, so I can't say which is better.  But if you are lucky to be eligible for a vaginal delivery, have it! C-sections are serious abdominal surgery and the healing time after that is very long.  When you come home from the hospital and that pain hit you, it's crazy! Plus, it leaves scare tissue and can (kinda) make losing  he weight or extra fat around that section of the stomach harbecause of the surgery.  My son is 2.5 anmyincision still itches sometime.  For our next child, I would like a VBAC, but since a VBAC has risk, a lot of doctors advice against it. But I don't want to be cut open again.



Honestly, I didn't have pain for long. The worse of my pain was during the three days in the hospital, but that was mostly because they waited until the third day to give me a stomach binder. The pain for me mostly came from my insides feeling loose when I moved, even with the morphine drip. All that did was make me drowsy.

But after i left the hospital, and put on a tighter waist binder, I felt so much better. They prescribed me with Percocet, so I took those for the first week home. I was able to get up and move around just fine, carry my baby, and by the second week home I felt normal again, with just a few aches ever so often. My scar is practically already healed, its small and barely noticeable.

Im 3 weeks post partum, and lost my baby weight already...including in the abs. I only gained 25lbs during my pregnancy though. My waist compressor helped a lot, plus breastfeeding also helps with weight loss. I'm still losing and haven't even started my diet lol.

Overall, my healing process wasn't nearly as bad as ppl said it would be, and I'm thankful for that!

Wow! that was a good experience! I had to stop taking the Percocet the second week in after an incident
where I fell asleep trying to nurse my baby.  When I woke up, he was
stuck between the couch cushions upside down fighting to breath.  I
guess I'm really sensitive to pain medication.  After that, I had to
grin and bear it because the Percocet was a little too strong even
though they helped with the pain.  I wasn't successful with breastfeedingCryCryCry


Omg that had to be scary!! I was so worried something like that would happen to me at the hospital. The morphine had me so drugged up and drowsy, I dozed off everytime I nursed my baby. She was drowsy too from my meds. I made them take me off the morphine drip early because my baby and I wouldn't stay awake long enough for her to get full.

c sects are the worst.  ur stomach never looks the same, healing is a BITCH & u have a permanent muffin top unless you get lipo/tummy tuck.
 
You have better chances of snapping back with vaginal

I had 1 natural and 2 epidurals.  If I had to do it again I'd do natural.  Horrible recovery with numbness that lasted for months after the last one.  It was very scary.
