How much did your babies weigh?

Eeww yeah thats why I want a csection! Did your vagina go back to normal after that? I'm a first time mom and scared to death of tearing. That has to ruin your vagina.

Vagina didn't get ruined but it hurt so bad having sex again,  I was tighter than what I was when I was a virgin!! My boy was 6.6

Is there anything you can do to avoid or at a minimum decrease the severity of tearing?

Yeah screw that I'm demanding a csection. I refuse to push the baby out! That's horrible.

Third degree lacerations with my 6.3 son. Definitely changed things down there, but obviously not too much, since I'm preggo with #2, lol.

I tore sideways with my first. And he was only 4 lbs 9 oz.  And the doctor just did one long stitch on either side. But I guess she did good bc i've never had complaints since birth lol
