when you think of it do you imagine that it would be better or worse? Why or why not?

I hear so much about how awful tearing is. It makes me wonder how it compares to incision pain.

I can only give you from my experience, Holly. I tore with all 3 of my vaginal deliveries, but REALLY bad with my first. And it was horrible. My c-section incision never really gave me much trouble, my pain was managed really well.

One of the things with my first that made that recovery so hard though was my pelvic bone must have been bruised really bad too. Cause it hurt for a long time and made walking really hard too. My baby was pushing right up against it every time I pushed, and they finally had to use the forceps to yank him under the bone.

My c-section to vaginal experience was that my c-section was a MUCH better experience for me. But, I know that's not true for all.
