My third (and final) baby arrived 11 days ago via VBAC. Austin Joseph weighed in at 6.12.5lbs and now weighs 7.85 (gotta love the over abundant milk supply!
We labored for about 39 or so hours, pushed for about 4 but then he arrived...having him directly placed on my tummy made the long labor worth it! The recovery surprised me with its intensity...hemorroids, major swelling due to pushing so long, a 2nd degree tear, but is still easier than the c/s recovery!

Congratulations! Sorry to hear about your 2nd degree tear. I had one with my VBAC baby, too.. but like you said- it's still so much better than the c/s
