I've only ever had a c/s and it was emergency, and I didn't think it was as bad as how everyone goes on about it. Yeah, the few days after was painful, but what more could you expect from abdominal surgery???? But I was doing everything myself within a fortnight, like driving around, carrying my BIG baby and doing the house work. It all comes down to each person and their situation. I didn't do exercise like sit ups for a while, and thats mainly due to the fact that I'm just a lazy person!!! lol. Of course women who have had a natural labour are going to say go natural, and vice versa...but for me c/s is the best option, and you will know yourself what option is best for you!
