Quoting AngelGabriel'sMama:" I don't say I gave birth necessarily, but I guess I believe I did. I didn't go into labor or have any ... [snip!] ... recover like anyone else. Lol I don't know, but if someone says they gave birth it's cool and if they say they didn't whatever."
Quoting Ole' No Name:" Okay this isn't my personal beliefs so don't jump.my ass about this. Just a question, mkay? I was ... [snip!] ... gave birth. She says.. "they get the easy way out, they just lay there and someone cuts the baby out" What are your feelings?"
Quoting Wiggity Wack:" Your friend is an uppity bitch. Having a c-section is by no means the easy way out. Some people will grasp at any straw in order to feel superior to others."
Quoting melindapple:" That's fine to say if they do they do, and if they don't, they don't. But no one should be able to say ... [snip!] ... for her health rather than be stubborn and push a baby out just so I could have the same rights to claim "giving birth.""Same here. I was induced and went through 7 hours of intense contractions. On hour seven, my son went into distress and his heart rate started dropping. I hadn't dilated at all and was no closer to pushing him out than at hour one, so I had a c-section. He came out with his cord wrapped around his neck twice. The doctors said he might have died if I chose to continue laboring. But according to OPs bitch friend, I took "the easy, lazy way out".
Quoting RushLimbaugh:" c sections take longer to recover from in general than vag births so how is that easier?"I have a pretty sturdy frame, and was able to walk around and use the bathroom after 1 day of recovery. According the hospital staff, that isn't very common. It still hurt like hell. I skipped one dose of my pain meds because they were making me drowsy and I felt the full extent of that pain. I woke up to my son crying and tried to get out of bed to walk to his bassinet. Ugh...I still remember dropping to the floor and screaming for my DH to help me. The nurses came in and bitched me out for skipping my meds. lol.

Quoting RushLimbaugh:" OWWW brings back memories. I hope to GOD I don't go thru that again with this kid. Other than the ... [snip!] ... the post op pain, the worst pain was them rotting me out sticking a cath up my pee hole without the epidural or anesthesia. "Ugh. I hated the cath too. The things we do for our babes.
