I did well kinda.
I had an emergency with DD1 it was very rushed and if i didn't have the epi it i would have been put under GA. it was truly horrible and i hurt horribly for months and months.
Well i was pregnant with DD2 when DD1 had her first birthday and I couldn't decide which was i'd go and had a c-section booked for 39 weeks but the dr new that i might or might not take it. well at 38 weeks bubs heartbeat was found to be hugely erratic so they decided to do a medical ceasar (kinda like an emergency i guess it definately wasn't elective) but i didn't labour at all and honestly i was in a whole lot less pain then the first time around it was so much better but since i don't have anything to go on i imagine you'd still be in less pain with a natural birth. the only problem i had after DD2 was a pinced nerve which made walking agony but only for about 2 weeks other then that i was almost pain free which was completely unlike the first
Oh and there is only just 20months between my two
