    hey ladies, well just thought id see what u thought. With my son i had to have an emergeny c section but with my daughter i had a natural birth. So with this little one, they have given me the choice of whether i want to have another c section or whether i want to try for another natural. My first thought was natural - purely because it was faster for me to recover that way last time. But the more i think about it, the more im starting to consider a c section - it does seem to be the easy way out. i kno it hurts more afterwards but id at least escape labour pains.... :D Also we have no family up here so when i DO go into labour im going to have to phone my dad who lives about 2 and half hours away, to look after the kids whilst dp goes to the hospital wit me. I do have a friend who said she'd watch them till my dad gets here, but as much as i love her, she's just not 100 % reliable - she goes out at the weekends..... what if i go into labour whilst she's out clubbing? I thought maybe if i had a c sction id at least have an exact date, and i could arrange for my dad to come up in time for then. BUUUUUUUT.......on the other hand - what if im 3 weeks early again like i was wit morgan and chanelle? The date wouldnt matter then anyway........ IM CONFUSED! :dohh:

    Hard to say hun, pros and cons with both really. You need to decide what you really want to do. Is there no-one else who can watch the kids till your dad gets there if you was to go natural?

    I know they do it here if you ask it .
