    I’ve since had my 3rd (she’s two months). I had a 3rd degree tear (almost 4th). I am still recovering. Recovery was and still is much harder than with my LO1 csec and my LO2 vbac. If I could go back knowing what I know now, I would seriously consider csec. She was also 9 lbs and 3 oz. and sunny side but I ended up delivering her with forceps to get her out.

    @yellowbeach: thanks! I totally forgot to come update this thread!

    DS3 was born in January via induction. He came out about 1/2 lb less than his brothers (he was born a week earlier than them). I don’t know how much that helped? My induction when VERY smoothly, besides some technical difficulties with my epidural (which resulted in the nurses TURNING IT OFF...soooo no epidural at the end. Cool)

    I only pushed twice and ended up with a second degree tear just where I had scar tissue. It was a MUCH easier recovery than my other two deliveries...I told my OB right after LO was born “I’m so thankful I didn’t opt for a CS!”
