I think you are right! I had an episitomy with my first and then my vbac (3rd baby) I ended up with 3, 2nd degree tears that all needed stitches. This time, even though she is just as big as my 3rd (same measurements and everything) no tearing or anything. My recovery has been the best yet, by far, compared to all my other babies. I think being in my own home environment and really getting rest in my own bed with my own things and no nurses all up in my business every hour is HUGE!
