This is my second pregnancy - first baby was induced at 38 weeks, vaginal delivery with epidural and wound up having a lot of tearing - baby was 6 lb 6 oz, so not large at all. This time around baby is already 7 pounds and measuring 39 weeks, while I am only 37 weeks. My question is, I remember what the recovery was like with a vaginal birth, but for those of you who had have both, which one seemed like an easier recovery? I know they are both hard, but we may be faced with a c-section if baby continues to grow, and I am just wondering if we should possibly elect to do a scheduled c-section as opposed to inducing and going the vaginal route. It's worth noting that I would like to attempt this second delivery without an epidural if possible, so I am concerned about doing so and starting to push, only to find that baby is too big and a c-section is necessary. If Im going to need an epidural, I almost want to just schedule a c-section and be done with it. Any comments or feedback welcome!
