I had my son in october 2001 and my other son in June 2003 so just over 20 months apart, both csections. I would talk to your dr and try to ease your mind about your situation. My 2nd pregnancy was full of problems because of a thin uterine scar from what I think was from an improper csection with my first. my X SIL had 2 csections 11 months apart and she had a great 2nd pregnancy. the dr's said in my 2nd pregnancy i had an irritable uterus. Also the chances the something bad happening is very very low. I had a repeat csection with my 2nd and it was great, I was released and shopping on day 2!

My older two are 3 1/2 years apart, but my 2nd and 3rd are 17 months apart. (All 3 of my kids are c-section babies). I did feel some pain over the incision area as I got bigger, but my OB said it wasn't a big deal. I had my c-section with my 3rd and it was probably my easiest recovery! The chances of something going really wrong are very slim. Enjoy your pregnancy and new baby :-)

My friend fell pregnant with twins 3 months after a c-section. She said the pregnancy caused a little bit more cramping then usual but everything went well. her twins were born at 37 weeks (planned c section) and they were both healthy and happy. 4.9 and 5.12 :) good luck and just pray!

I have a (in April) a 4 year old, 3 year old twin boys, a 2 year old girl, plus a 10 week old girl...all c-sections. I had healthy normal pregnancies, no complications during the c-section. Try to not worry, I did for most of my pregnancies, and didn't enjoy them as much as I should have. Congrats!

LOL noodle... my youngest was about the same size as BOTH of your friend's twins! He was 10 lbs. 6 oz.!!

I have a 4yr old and a 8mth baby. Both were delivered by cesarean. I just found out I am 6 weeks and am considering abortion as I feel it is too soon. Infact my doctor had advised me to wait at least 2yrs before falling pregnant again. This was totally unplanned, I was waiting for my next period to have an IUD inserted as the pill gave me severe mood swings. Now I am expecting and don't know what to do. Please help.

Lish that is a hard question considering I am very against abortion. I mentioned earlier I have a thin uterine scar and with my 3rd I was told not to have another and I did my 2nd and 3rd child are around 21 months apart. it is was had on me but not as bad as my first csection. If you can afford another child I would keep this one as abortion might be hard on your uterus and cause damage from previous csection (I dont know this for a fact this is what I think because of how they do abortions. I would definatly talk to my dr about it if your considering it). Also pls keep in mind of adoption.

Lish, did you decide to go on with your pregnancy or have an abortion?

well My son is 8 months n I had a c-section with him. I'm 5 days late with my period... I dont think you should be nervous at 11 month after. You should be fine.

Repeated c-sections do cause more scar tissue each time and pregnancies can stress a weak scar, however, the doctors monitor you carefully and you can always ask them specifically what the signs of impending uterine rupture are. This is very rare, even in labor c-section scars rupture less than 1% of the time. The thing that concerns OBs and nurses more is the number of births in general, both vag and c-sect. With each delivery the uterus can become more flaccid (loses its tone) due to repeated stretching from pregnancies, so the thing to really discuss aside from uterine rupture (again, very rare) is intraoperative or post-partum bleeding because the uterus can't clamp down as effectively. I had my 4 c-sections all in exactly 4 years, and yes, I did hemorrhage with 2 of them, BUT, we are all here and my scar didn't rupture even with a total of 4 labors that were stopped before my preemie finally had to be delivered. I think any woman who has had a c-section feels a bit of fear after going through the experience before, it is kind of scary to have a scar on your uterus given how stretched it is going to be. Good luck and I hope things work out just fine with you.
