I am new to this board and have not yet had a chance to read old posts. Please feel free to direct me if something similar has been discussed.
I am a mother of 2 beautiful girls, both born via a csection. My last csection was in 2009 and was a complete disaster ending with an 8 hour reconstructive surgery to put me back together. My bladder was cut in half, my vagina was cut, thank god the dr missed my dd. The recovery was hell but here I am 4 years later and doing fine.
My husband and I have been careful about not getting pregnant, it just seemed that another pregnancy/delivery would be too much. However, secretly I longed for another child and had a real hard time to deal with the loss of possibly not having another.
I am 1.5 weeks late with my period. If I am pregnant I am terrified. There is nothing more I want than to have another child but I am so scared about the risks involved.
Perhaps someone here has gone through similar. The following are my concerns:
- I had high blood pressure with my last dd. At week 37 I was induced because it was too high. I am afraid that it will come back this time and potentially will make me have a preterm baby
- I read way to much on the internet, and Dr. Google freaked me out about scar tissue, placenta problems after csections, and potential life threatening situations
- can they do a csection incision much higher, even it its vertical i don't care, can just just avoid the whole bladder area all together
- i am scared that there is too much scar tissue which i read can have some serious implications
too many questions, so little answers. No dr here in Canada will tell me NO but this decision is so hard. Without sounding over dramatic I don't want to put my life in danger, my girls need me and I need them.
If you are pregnant, I would have a long discussion with any dr you see, before you decide to use that ob. Express all the concerns you have and ask for options and answers. I will keep you in my prayers.
