Oh, I Wish I Had An Oscar Mayer Weiner...

A few fellow mommies and I were discussing the pros and cons of c-section births versus vaginal births and whether a VBAC would be (or would have ever been) a choice for any of us. Personally, I chose for Middle and Baby to be scheduled c-sections. My rationale? When there's already a scar, why "scar" something (somewhere) else? Plus, my OB actually advised me that I was a "prime candidate for a repeat c-section" due to my failure to progress (after 32 hours) when I was in labor with Eldest.

And after I became pregnant again with Baby (less than 4 months!) after delivering Middle, I was kinda pissed that I didn't just have the dr. surgically implant a zipper on my lower belly.

But I digress. My point? (As I'm sure you're wondering about the relevance of the picture above...) The discussion (of course) turned to sex after pregnancy...and (before I go any further, I must add that I have asked permission to use this next (HILARIOUS!) quote....and of course all names and identities shall remain anonymous....)

One of the mommies so artfully stated that sex right after a vaginal delivery is "Kinda like tossing a hotdog down a hallway...."

Now after your raucous laughter dies down and you can stop convulsing enough to regain control of your mouse, please go vote for me here on Top Momma!

My husband and I (well, more me than him) got a good laugh out of that one. I keep telling him that giving birth is worse than a vasectomy. We've been having this discussion this week. Sometimes my body still hurts from childbirth and my youngest is 19 months old. Childbirth is really hard on some of us. It seems some women can "spit them out" and keep on going. Not me, that's for sure. I'll keep doing my kegels though. LOL

One child, one c-section here. I loved mine and wouldn't have it any other day.

I do not at all feel cheated that I didn't get to experience labor pains, an episiostomy (SP?), peeing my pants every time I cough.

I highly recommend a section to all of my friends. It's not like I was wearing a bikini anyway....
