Just wondering if anyone has has more than 3 csections. If so how far apart were they & did you have any complications? I've had 3 in the last 3 years. My first in July 2008, second in February 2010 & third July 2011. I don't know if we will try for a 4th or not mainly because I'm scared of complications. I had a post partum hemorage after this last csection. If we do go for #4 it will be in 2-3 yrs. Just wondering how y'alls experience was.
My 5th and last is schedule for 10/31. My first 3 were less than 30 months apart from each other and my fourth was 6 years later. My 2 year old kicked me in the stomach 4 days after my 3rd-so I used pain medication for a few days after that. Otherwise no issues, I have a low tolerance to medication and try to avoid it.
I'm having my fourth and last on Sept 6th (within 5 years of each other so relatively closely spaced). I asked my doctor after each how my uterus was and if I was fine to have another. Every time he said that I could have more c-sections than I'd want kids. It wouldn't be a problem. I'd ask your doctor that was in there to just be sure your body is up to more, but nowadays most docs don't go by the old 3 and done rule.
ETA first was the worst by far. Last had no complications at all
dd Oct 2006, dd Nov 2007, dd June, 2010, and
DS due Sept 6th, 2011 YAY!!
