krtctrkr - March 9

I have had 2 c-sections one in 2002 and the other in march 2004. its been 4 yrs exactly since my last c-section. my 1st went smoothly with no problems, c-section was due to failure to progress. my 2nd was due to baby too large my pelvis too small. i would really like a 3rd but with my 2nd section i suffered massive bleeding and it took a long time for me to recover. this has made me cautious. has anyone suffered similar and gone on too have a normal straight forward 3rd section. what could i do to make this a healthy pregnancy and birth? any advice and tips are greatly appreciated thank you =)

I have had 4 fine c-sections at a High Risk Fetal medicine Unit for past history of preeclampsia. With this last one I had my tubes done as I felt 5 is too risky. My dr before my third told me of risks of placenta accreeta, placenta previa and uterine rupture. He also told me that 1/10 i c ould need a blood transfusion due to hemorraging. He laid it all out for us during a prepregancy consult. we did go ahead and rolled the dice and had our 4th. then before giving birth, he went over the risk of another pregancy and we decided not to risk the happiness of our family and had the tubes done. I was sad about it, but thought it was a wise choice. I met women in the high risk unit that had placenta accreta and their placentas were growing into there bladders and bowels. To remove that during surgery is very risky and their sections were going to be very high risk, so for me 4 is the limit and I called it a day. All my sections did go very well, with no trouble so I finished well! i would speak to your dr prior to getting pregant and see what they say. Good luck.
