I had my 1st baby 9 years ago, and received a bad tear, requiring stitches. I am due to have my second on 4January 2004 and have heard that the scars can have trouble stretching and may mean that a tear is more likely again. My first baby was only 6 pound, the doctor estimates this one is up to 71/2 pounds. I'm getting nervous. Has anyone else heard this?
