To all my dear friends i apologize i havent been quite active in mylot lately.. i JUST GAVE BIRTH to my baby girl!!! and I had a C section done... i was really expecting to have her delivered on normal spontaneous delivery since i was in labor for 12 HRS!!! (and because its cheaper and i really wanted to feel what a natural birth does feel..) unfortunately my cervix wasn't cooperative enough to reach the 9-10cm dilation, hence i was given an emergency c-section. So there it was, my beautiful baby girl... its like delivering it both ways, i experienced the labor pains and had her delivered c-section. So if you have a choice- would you opt for a c-section or a normal delivery?

Catcai my friend - CONGRATULATIONS! I am sure she is a very beautiful little girl and that love you worried about has miraculously appeared! I have never experienced c section - both times I have been prepared for the chance it might have to happen, both time had to have waters broken and a drip to make contractions stronger and forceps but luckily - ( just for the healing process!) have managed without this! Never mind you rest up and you will heal soon! I am so pleased for you my friend - enjoy your bundle of love sweets and let us know how you are both doing! I have not been on much but have really missed you when I have been here and was starting to worry about you! xxx

I am sorry that you are feeling so ill sweetheart - be kind to yourself and get plenty of rest - you have a long time to make up for the lost cuddles and I know that you will! I am so glad that things have turned out so well with your mum! Remember I am here - if you need me just send a pm! xxx

my mother had a C-section when she gave birth to me. she said that after 24 years, the pain is still there when the weather is too hot nor too cold. she said that if she only had a choice then, she would want to have a normal delivery. if I were to choose, i'd prefer NSD. practically, it's cheaper and there is lesser pain.

First one weighed in at 8 1/2 lbs, 2nd one weighed a whopping 10 lbs(think he fell out) LOL the third was 7 lbs 12 oz Went from 6 hours to 4 hours to 19 hours. Crazy how that works isn't it Again Congrats Wendy
