I love my marks (Anonymous)

April 21, 2008

my firstborn entered the earth by nonemergency c-section after 28 hours of labor. For my second, a scheduled c-section after great personal debate. My mother had 5 cesareans and has always said that she felt a little cheated- a bit like a failure. I have never felt this way. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised to see that my first scar is still present- I thought it would be cut away to make the new one which, by the way, is only 11 weeks old.

    Yowch! That looks painful! But so did my episiotomy lol! Childbirth isn’t fun no matter how you spell it out! Thank you for sharing!
