How bad is it?


With my first I had 4th degree tearing. I only found out recently that a major reason why was her shoulders getting stuck. She was 10days late and 8lbs5oz. The recovery was 6weeks bedrest and I still have issues down there.

I’m due December 16 but my little boy is measuring in the 90 percentile for weight (when I went in two weeks ago he was almost 5lbs). His head is huge. They said I get to choose a c section or try another vaginal delivery. But the chances of him getting stuck are high (and me tearing that bad all over again).

I’m terrified of doing either. I almost died the first time, I really don’t want to go through that again. How bad is the c section recovery? Permanent damage?
