I had an episiotomy and a 3rd degree tear with my little girl. She went into distress after 25 minutes of me pushing so my OB cut me and used forceps to get her out. My OB and I talked abut what I wanted in case of an emergency on my last visit before being induced and she follwed what I wanted to a T.
Quoting That one chick.:" Curious how many ladies tore and if they did how bad they did.. If you didn't did you use anything to ... [snip!] ... to "prepare" yourself for birth like oil? I don't know how else to word the poll so if you have anything to add thanks!"
I had one little tear with my son and just needed a stitch I didn't feel them do it either.

Wow it sounds like everything added up to bad timing for you!
I go on the tour soon so maybe I can size up how everything is. I really like my OB she is on a team too but she's really straight forward and never seems to leave out any details and anytime she has any questions she acts like she has all the time in the world to answer them. I just hope I go into labor during the day because she said there are different doctors on call at night but if it's during the day it will definitely be her.
I had an all natural labor the pain was so unbearable so I started pushing too early and ended up having to get cut. & 13 stiches. The stitching was more painful then labor itself. I wish I would had prepared.
With my beautiful Annalina, I tore a little. She was 7lbs 3oz and I really was so pumped with adreniline that i didn't feel it nor realized it. lol You think i would have but honestly even after i was holding her the doc told me he would numb me real quick and i wouldn't feel him sewing me up and honestly i was so out of it and tired after everything that had he not told me what he was doing...i wouldn't have known nor cared. Good luck hun!
I forgot to say that I did not have the epidural and i just had the seditives to keep me calm... they worked:)
I didn't tear but I had an episiotomy.
I didnt tear with either of my kids, im scared I might with this one, but all I did was walk a lot a lot, I didnt have a car with my first two, I walked everywhere. No oils or anything, maybe its just elasticity or something.
I had a level 2 tear skin and muscle everything was going fine. UNTIL the nurse told me not to push I told her I needed to she said hold it my son at that point was coming at his own. So in the middle of pretty much doing a kegel my suns head ripped right out with no mercy. If your afraid of ripping just listen to your body I do not plan on putting my faith in a nurse like that again. I understand my son came quickly the room was not ready but just because you don't have mats on the floor does not mean my son is coming any slower. I have pains whenever I have a b.m. or intercourse with my husband. I to this day just have so much anger for that woman it makes me sick. If I could do it all over again and would of let it all happen naturally I do not believe I would have torn that is the truth.
I had a second degree tear with my first.
My second was a scary delivery and we needed him out ASAP so the doc on call gave me an episiotomy. When I asked how many stitched i had, he laughed in my face and told me four LAYERS.
I didn't tear with either of my two babies. (hoping it will go this smoothly with the one on the way) The only thing I did to prepare myself was to do lots and lots of kegal exercises. I'll assume you know what they are, if not, Google it :)
They're supposed to help your muscles in that area.
