Did you have to get stitches after birth?

At my 39 week appointment, i discussed my fear of csection (due to babies weight) with my doctor and he told me that they will do everything in their power for me to have a healthy delivery vaginally. He then mentioned that I would most likely need stitches down there after delivery due to being “petite” in that area.

How bad is the recovery if you had to get stitches? I’m a little worried now. My baby should be around 8 pounds and I do have a smaller frame that’s why I’m worried.
