Re: Can I opt for a C-section?
I've had a C-section with my first 10 years ago, (it was an emergency one) and yes they cut the muscles, but I was able to still keep my tummy down with exercise. (Everyone is different though) There are difinitely pro's and con's to having a C-section, one of the con's that was told to me (since with this 2nd pregnancy I'm forced to have another C-section due to heart problems) was that if you want to have many children most docotor's reccommend that you only have up to 4 C-sections. Reason bieng; after awhile, you develop alot of scar tissue with each section, and when you become pregnant, the placenta tends to gravitate toward the scar tissue and attach itself, this can cause all kinds of problems, some even leading to complete hysterectomy. For myself, I can never have a vaginal birth due to my own health problems, so my husband and I can only safely have up to 4 children in all. Which is fine for me, my husband would like to keep going until we just can't go no more, but that just won't be the case with me.
