I will have my fourth c-section in March.

My first two were 16 months apart.
My third was 21 months after #2.
This one will be almost 4 years after #3.

The only complication I had was an infection after DS#3 but that was b/c I did too much too soon.

I've had two sections. They were over 4 years apart. The complications I had was that I had a ton of scar tissue built up. They really pulled and yanked and cut me wider with my second birth due to it. And, with my first baby, I had pneumonia. I coughed so hard that I caused bleeding. They had to go back in and almost didn't close me back up.

Wow that is close, did you have any problems with the pregnancys? I'm possibly pregnant after my second csection 2months again, i've taken 3tests 2were positive one negative, so will be going to my doctors for a blood test on the 3rd. I'm obviously worriied about strain it will put on my expanding uterus, did you have any requirements made my your doctor like bed rest or anything?


My doctor didn't say anything about a window only that i had signifitacnt bruising on the side of the womb and needed a drain put in for the couple of days i was in the hospital.

Will you be going for another baby?

I had no problems with the pregnancy Dr just advise me to listen to my body rest when it tells me to dont over exert myself eat and drink healthy O I also began weekly visits at about 24 weeks I think I am expecting baby #4 now I believe I am about 4 weeks and 4 days buttttt this will most more than likely be my last dr is very concerned and I am considered high risk let us know how everything works out

I have had 3 c-sections.

My first 2 were 14 months apart (September 2005 and December 2006). No complications with either of those. My third c-section was almost 3 years after my second and I had some complications with the pregnancy by going into premature labor 3 times and I had complications with the c-section, I had to put under full anesthesia, and the doctor informed my husband that I had a lot of scar tissue on the right side which in turn, resulted in me ripping and having a 2 to 3 inch gap opened for 8 1/2 almost 9 weeks after my daughter was born.

I had my tubes tied cause the doctor recommended it before she was born, and then strongly urged it when they were unsuccessful with my spinal 6 different times before putting me to sleep. I consented, and so did my husband.

I had one in 2006 and one in 2010, and will have my third and final in 2012. No problems with the previous two and hopefully nothing with my third. Knock on wood!

I will have my 4th c/s in Feb.
First two: 12 months apart
between two and three: 5 years apart
between three and 4: 3 1/2 years apart.

I haven't had any complications other then my OB mentioning windows in my uterus with #3, which is why I'm having #4 as soon as his lungs are ready (will have steriod shots at 35 weeks and amnio to determine). During deleivery of # 3, the OB told me he removed all of my scar tissue so it will seem as if I've only had one c/s....we shall see this time around if that is true or not.

I first two are 15 months apart and then two and three are 14 months apart so now three and four will be two years exactly apart I am considered high risk because of my pregnancies and c-sections being so close together and I also have a thin "window" in my uterus therefore I am very certain this will be the last I will more than likely get my tubes tied I wanted all my children before 30 who knew I would be done before I even turned 27 I will be savoring every min of this pregnancy

Oh because of the window does that mean you wont be able to have anymore after this one?

My previous OB (that first mentioned the window) did not say anything to me about not having any more babies.....while we are not planning persay anymore babies....I'm not having my tubes tied (at least not yet). If my new OB recommends not having anymore babies due to the condition of my uterus (all of my babies were BIG)....then I for sure will not have any more.......but if my uterus looks ok....then the shop is staying open.

I have had one c/s and another one scheduled in roughly 3 weeks (Feb 1st ).

I didn't have any complications with the first and am hoping for the same type of recovery with this one. They will be 2 years 10 months apart.
