I believe that it is something that can be done... I.e. Instead of giving Norco/Percocet they can give you something less addictive and non narcotic. Or you should check into other options in Pain Medication... Anything can be done!! View Thread
When I had my first son my labor and delivery were fine, an hour of pushing he came out, no tears or abrasions, when I had my second son I had to get induced, the labor and delivery were horrible, I pushed for 2 straight hours and the OB finally tried to vaccum him out, and he had to cut me and I tore the rest of the way, so I ended up with a 4th degree tear. (instead of 2 holes, I had 1 BIG hole.) The OB said that I wouldn't be able to have any more kids natural, I would HAVE to have a C Section.
My Dr and I have decided to see how things go and have an extra ultrasound at about 36-38 weeks to see how big the baby is and if she's like 5-6 Lbs we're going to try for another natural delivery if she's already 7-8lbs we're going to schedule a C-Section.
My question is has anyone of you had a 4th degree tear and had another natural birth? I really want to try and have my last baby natural but if I have to have a C-Section I will...... View Thread
