Re: Which was more painful overall...

I completely understand this line of thought! My first was a c-section after a couple days of labor, my second was a failed VBAC after being in labor for the best part of 3 days. I don't know whether I'm going to try for a VBA2C with the next one; as much as I want/wanted an unmedicated vaginal birth, I don't love my odds at this point. I'd rather be well-rested for a scheduled c-section than end up having a c-section after 3 days of labor and no sleep whatsoever.
