After Claire I was told that it was "ideal" to wait so that there was at least 18 months between deliveries....not just because of the c-section, but also so your body can replenish its mineral/nutrient stores after pregnancy/BFing.

Sounds like most doctors are saying 18 months between deliveries, so 9 months before getting pregnant again? I wasn't planning to TTC any time before August anyways and most likely not until Sean is a year old, but thanks! Helps me feel better in case we have an "Oops!"
Hi. Im popping in from september 12 playroom. My dr said 6 months and said most doctors will say a year to be safe and cover their butts basically but he said as long as the section went smoothly and your recovering fine and your 6 weekcheckup theres usually no reason to wait longer. He said hea had many successful ones even earlier than 6 months but he doesnt reccomend thy because its so hard on your body.

Mine didn't tell me to wait any certain amount of time and he knows we are not using birth control. We aren't trying but we aren't really preventing either. I am not worried about it since I have had 3 c/s as it is.
