I have had two c-sections already. One with my 3 year old and another with my one year old. I am pregnant again and am anticipating another. Has anyone had three?????

hi kati i have had 2 c sections and i am ttc #3 which would make my 3rd c. so i am anxious to hear how it goes..when r u due? congrats! i know from talking to my doctor the risks are the same as they were with the other 2 just a little more elevated. my doctor told me you are at a higher risk of organ damge (bowel, bladder, ureters) due to the adhesions and scar tissue that has formed inside..what does your doc say?

Kati and Amy-I am due for my 4th c-sect. in March. I had no problems with any of my c's so far. My doctor did say that after my 3rd one, he would only recommend one more. It all depends on your body and how your uterus is. Your doctor will advise you on whether to have any more or not. I know of some who have gone on to have 5 or 6 with no complications, but I am taking my drs advice and getting tied after the 4th.

My doctor has not said anything yet as I just found out and I am a little freaked. I already have a 3 year old and 1 year old - so it will be very scary to have three. I actually had no complications with the 2 c-sections I have had - so was just a little nervous for a third since it is like major surgery. This however will be the last for me, while they are already in there I will have them tie the tubes!!

Im on my 3rd pregnancy and due to complictions in the last 2 am going to have a c section for this one tho im abit worried about my scar and how big im going to get as i dont want nothing to happen. Does anyone else worry about this?

I think it is up to your body as to how many C-sections you can have. I had three C-section without a problem and I am pregnant again. I healed fine had a lot of scar tissue with my last one, but other than that we were fine


Amy - December 11

i'm just like Renea i have had 3 and having #4 in Jan i did have a few problems but all and all we are all great

I didn't have any extra dangerous situations during my surgery, except that each c-section took longer and with one I bled severely. I did end up having to have a hysterectomy years later because of all the scar tissue and the damage it was causing. May I suggest this be your last one as bladders and bowels don't like the constant scar formation that forms from repeated c-sections. Good luck!

I'm having my 3rd c-section & final pregnancy. I don't want to risk my life just to have one more child. I'm happy with what I'm able to have & afford. It's very difficult for me to continue having kids. My pregnancies are well, but I have a preteen. A 1 year old. Having another baby in December. Working full time 5 days a week. Coming home to cook & clean. My husband works 2 jobs. I get no government help. My kids are with a sitter half day, cause my daughter helps out when she's out of school so I can't put that kind of pressure on my 12 year old to continue having more kids. I don't want to be selfish. I love my kids, and I work very hard for them & so does my husband.
