My husband and I are about to start trying for a baby (yay!) I have two children from a previous relationship and both were elective c-sections. I got pregnant with my first child when I was 17 and being a scared to death teenager I asked for a c-section at my first appointment. However when the day of the scheduled c-section finally came in October of 2007 I felt like I hadn't even been a part of my daughter's birth. I had my son by elective c-section in 2009 and the experience was equally terrible. My babies were rather large, my daughter was 9 lbs 2 oz and my son was 10 lbs 1 oz. I'm now 25 with 5 years since my last c-section and I'd really like to avoid another c-section if possible. However I'm also terrified of complications and of giving birth in general. I'd love to hear your stories! Any advice and insight is welcome! Thank you!
