I don't remember the exact stats, either, but I do remember that they weren't significantly different. That means there was enough of a margin of error in the numbers that there may be no increase in risk at all. There are obviously significant increases in various risks associated with a c-section.
I'm certainly not suggesting induction for anyone. I did it and wish I hadn't. I'm lucky Ethan was ok and I'm lucky I was ok and was able to have more children. I think I came very close to having my uterus removed, although no one would admit that at the time. It scares the crap out of me to think of that. However, I would not have agreed to another c-section with him. I would do just about anything to avoid another c-section. But I wouldn't do anything at all unless it was very apparent that my baby was in danger, in which case an emergency c-section would almost certainly be the only way to go.

Yes, I hope everyone gets better before Theo decides to make his entrance.
We're going to the Chiropractor today. The adjustments have really helped with my pain. I scrubbed a bath tub yesterday and was certain I wouldn't be able to move by night but I was fine. That is one of those activities that would have almost certainly put me out with back and leg pain.
Our hot water heater is acting funny. It's switching itself off, I think. I may have to call someone to look at it but first I have to get Sean to move all the crap that he has piled up around it so that no one can get to it.
Oh, and I finally sold one of my soakers on Hyena Cart.
It's not much but it's something.
