Second C Section Question Will They Do It So Soon

I had a C-Section last year and I am pregnant again with my second child. Is it unsafe to have another C-Section so soon? Will they refuse to do it and expect me to try natural? My first C-Section was an elective one.

Two words. Britney Spears. Her kids were 12 months apart almost to the day. I asked my doctor that question 2 weeks ago at my 6 week post partum check up. He told me that since I had a c-section to deliver my son I should wait a little bit longer to conceive/have another baby than I would have had to had I delivered v____ally. He feels waiting 6 months from the date of my c-section is a safe time to try and get pregnant again. My doctor supports VBAC when historically, doctors subscribed to the "Once a C-section, ALWAYS a C-section" philosophy. You should ask your doctor his/her view points on this matter.

I got pregnant with my 3rd child when my 2nd was 8 months old... so I had my 3rd c-section only 17 months after the 2nd one. Everything was ok. He was a big baby, too, (10 lbs. 6 oz. 22 3/4") and stretched me to the max, but my uterus held up and recovery was about the same as w/ my daughter (2nd baby).

Thank you. I'm starting to feel more confident :)
