I do not want a vertical cut. I am 4 mos and this is my 4th child/csection. I've done some reading on the subject. I've readDrs don't want to do more than 3 csections on the same cut, and also it depends on the woman. Does anyone know of someone who has had more than 3 horizontal(bikini cuts)? I've also waited 2 yrs btween all 4 (healing time). I am also young and small so I don't think it'll b much trouble. They say midline cut as if its gonna b so much smaller but I'm already a small woman which means I'm feeling like my ”midline cut” is gonna be more of a complete line. I've read the healing time is more also. I've seen pictures of the vertical cut and it looks like its more work to care for and looks more painful. With my bikini cut every one was a breeze for me. No one barely could tell I even had one each time I bounced back very quickly. Which is the reason why I don't want to change what I'm use to it just doesn't make since to me.,my nurse spoke about the risk nd other women but those are not my risk and I am not other women... It just doesn't seem right. HELP! Any advice is appreciated.

I know they don't like dong more than three here but my mum and MIL both had 4 cs and were fine! It is definitely possible- maybe get a second opinion

I would seek a second and maybe even a third opinion. You do have the right to say no.

You can request they do a low transverse incision across the skin and then a vertical incision on the uterus if they are adamant you need to use a different area.

When they persisted in questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let the person among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." John 8:7

I asked my mum and she doesn't know if they were in the same spot- not the kind of thing they shared 20 and 30 years ago I was told with mine that they are slightly off. The second cs was just above the first. But you can't tell looking at the scar!
Definitey get a second opinion.
