    1. Thanks for sharing. My first was a traumatic vaginal delivery that ended up in a vacuum assisted delivery with an episiotomy. Recovery was awful and it took months to completely heal. He was less than 6ilbs, but he was sunny side up. I got pregnant 8 months later with my daughter who came at 32 weeks via csection since she was Frank breech. I'd take the csection and its recovery any day. The csection itself was scary and overwhelming, but was much quicker. The abdomen pushing hurt like a mother f-er and they were very stingy with the pain meds. It sucked that my daughter was in the nicu for a month making it very difficult to bond. I'm still depressed about missing out on the last weeks of my pregnancy, but my placental insufficiency was causing her to go into rapid heart failure, so I'm glad she survived. Honestly, after all the fear and trauma with my first, I think I'd opt for a repeat csection.

      I can't believe the doctors used forceps when they could've used the vacuum. That bladder issue sounds horrific. I'm sure it took a long time to resume marital relations (it took 5 months for us after my episiotomy).

    2. Hi, was wondering if you felt any pelvic floor problems, vaginal looseness or weird feelings like air bubbles and kind of weaker feeling in vagina postpartum? Even if it's 2 or 5 years postpartum?

    3. OMG on feeling the c-section. That started to happen to me with my first (she's 11), but I screamed bloody murder and they put me under general. You must have been in such insane pain. I can't even imagine πŸ™ The second time I had a scheduled c-section also. Loved that c-section, awesome experience. Healing was also very easy both times. The second time my doctor tried to talk me into a VBAC from the beginning but I knew I wanted a scheduled c-section and I'm glad I stuck to my guns on that.

      With PPD I didn't have it until after I stopped nursing my second child when she was 2.5 years-old. It hit like a ton of bricks about a week after she weaned. My (female) gynecologist didn't take me seriously. She said I was depressed about not having more babies! My (male) general practitioner took me seriously immediately, said it was definitely from the sudden withdrawal of the nursing hormones and put me on a medicine for a few months while my body and brain worked it out.

    4. Too bad I missed the streaming. It's so amazing that you have this intense touch memory of your mother.
      I had a emergency C-section with full anasthesia because my babies heartrate dropped. So I was not conscious to witness the birth of my son. I needed 2 months to recover. I also suffered from postpartum depression. All issues I worked on beforehand just popped up at once. I worked on my selfcare and soothing my hurt "inner child" and got better gradually. At first I was so disappointed about all this mess, but now I feel fine and stronger than before.

    5. Ex hubby was a playboy huh πŸ˜‚ he prolly be lookin at some of ur vids like i miss that pretty face
      but 2 bad his loss right?! lol

    6. Mina my brother who is in med school was born with a C section and my dad had told my mom have a safe trip when she was going to the hospital he didn't go with her and she told me she felt very bad when he said that I guess my dad very dumb I guess after seeing my parents' story I don't ever wanna have kids because I don't think I can ever trust any guy like that maybe having a boyfriend I am kool with or a religious nikkah just I don't think I would ever wanna have a legal marriage because I don't trust any guy with my money and bank account I have seen all of this nonsense in my family but all in all I am very proud of my brother that was born during such a dramatic situation and I have a hard time trusting people like on the personal level I trust people but not on the personal level I think have to go through counseling if I ever wanted to get married because I fear big relationships well I guess I know who I will come to I will hire you as my life couch when the time comes for me πŸ™‚

    7. omg!! you felt everything God bless you lol I have one child. I had an emergency CS. A week later they had to reopen me bc i got an infection on my uterus. So i technically had two CS 😣😣 Worst pain ive ever felt in my life recovery and infection.

    8. I'm not even close to having a kid but I just sat and watched this all lol. anyone else? just wondering but how do you deal with co=parenting since your first born has a different father? does that father spend any time with all three of your kids or does he just take your eldest one?
