Zane birthing story: I was a scheduled to come in at 8am on Thursday March 31, 2011. At 11:1 am, Zane Gregory entered this world weighing 8 lbs, 2 oz., with a ton of black hair. The repeat C-section was a breeze in my opinion and I felt great the whole time. I didn’t even contemplate a VBAC, and personally, it was the best choice in my case to have the repeat C-section. I am not discouraging anyone from trying for a VBAC (if you can do it and want it, go for it) but it wasn’t really an option for me. I only had to take the pain medicine for 3 days, was up walking that night, and back to playing tennis by 6 weeks.
Taylor’s birthing story: Taylor was born 7-7-14 at 8:13 am weighing 7 pounds, 15 oz and 19.5 inches in height. She was born via a routine C-section which was not too terrible except for the horrible drink they made me take right before taking me in for the operation. While the C-Section was not bad, recovery was the worst and it took me a good 8 weeks to feel like myself. I also still have the last 10 pounds to lose after having her, but she is so worth it!
