I don't think you are being ridiculous ... Are these your first babies???
I've never had cs but have had two vb ... Labour and a vaginal birth is not like having surgery (unlike cs) ... I actually saw very little blood and your recovery afterwards will be quicker.
Have you talked to your ob about this? Or even like some friends, your mum etc to find out about their experience ...
Just read your comment about a low pain threshold ... I thought I was the same until I had kids ... You will be amazed at what your body can cope with!
Ultimately you need to make the decision that is best for you
