I am pregnant with my third child and scheduled to have my third c-section. I tried giving birth naturally (and I mean with no drugs at all) However, it just wasn't meant to be; something to due with my pelvic bone, etc. I cannot deliver va___ally. Anyway, I really had my heart set on 4 children and I wanted to know if this will have to be my last child or if anyone knows anything about the risks, etc. of a 4th c-section? Please share your experiences. Thanks

My sister is currently getting ready for her 4th c-section. I know it is possable but I dont know how dangerous. She will be getting a tubal this time.

Yes, and frankly it is pushing it. Have the doctor check your bulging uterus before he cuts into it to see how thin your uterine scar is...if he/she can see it is thin don't have four. I had tremendous, long-lasting problems after so many c-sections ending in a hsterectomy and my ovaries gone. Be careful and be happy with 3 if that's what happens. Good luck!

Thanks so much for your responses. I will remember to talk to the doctor about the condition of my uterine scar and I will follow his advice... there is always adoption for a fourth child. Thanks

This is my 4th pregnancy and c-section. Ask your doctor about the condition of your uterus. Mine was fine with me having 4, but suggested no more after that. Everyone is different and heals different. I know people who have had 5 and been fine, and then I know those who have had 3 and had to stop. Only your doctor can tell you-and he can tell exactly when he is doing your 3rd c-sect. because he will be in there and can see how your uterus is.

Every woman is different and maybe for some women two sections are all they can have for health reasons but I know a woman who is about to have her ninth C. So it depends on a woman's scarring, individual health, etc. Your doctor will be able to tell you specifically.
