Re: Birthing things

With #1, I tore (TMI) from one hole to the other...and I swear it felt like it took FOREVER to heal. The doc was trying to do the episiotomy, but I was literally | | that close to delivering. Every time he tried (I won't be too descriptive), it brought on a contraction and I delivered without the episiotomy. I was *so* worried about tearing with #2. Nothing really different happened between #1 and #2 regarding how fast labor was and how it progressed....but no tear..no episiotomy. And I also think that the dr sewed me up a little too tight with #1...so I was really glad no tear or anything with #2. So, anyway....I don't think just because you tear or get cut with #1, it necessarily means that either would have to happen with subsequent children.
