Lately I have been thinking about working on a birth plan, because I want to keep up with everything with somewhat of a plan. With my daughter I had a 4th degree tear plus I was given an epistomy. Labour and birth really were a breeze for me expect for the tearing part. Anyways I am TERRIFIED of tearing again with this baby! Has anyone else already had a baby or has more childern that has torn with one but not with the other? This sounds awful also but i was sewen up really well but sex still hurts sometimes because i almost feel like i was sewn up too tight. If it hurts during sex sometimes I can't imagine not tearing again with this little man. Anyone know of any techinques to keep from tearing? Thanks for any advice!
