I just found out I am pregnant with my second child and am overjoyed. My first child was breach, and was birthed by a scheduled C-section. I completely skipped over the labor experience, but the C-section was about as stress-free as I could imagine. The procedure was fairly painless, and even though I was sore and had to take it easy for a week or two after, it really wasn't a difficult recovery, as I was staying home and bonding with my baby.
Here's my confession: I am afraid of labor. I am afraid of the pain, I am afraid of the tearing, I am afraid of the irreversible destruction of my lady bits, which stayed quite nice after my first birth. A part of me wants to have the experience of the vaginal birth process, but a larger part of me says "WHY? the last one worked just fine, let's do that again." And, no, I am not exercise-minded, so the lack of abs after the incision isn't really a big concern for me.
So, I would like some advice from those of you that have done both. Was your experience better for having had the VBAC? Or would you have skipped the whole thing and just done the C? In short- if you could skip labor again and go right to "here's your kid" would you?
