Hi ladies,
I just had my third c-section last week and my Dr has advised me to be finished having kids. She said my uterus is really thin and having another could be dangerous for me. I was wondering if anyone else has been told this. I have three wonderful children and will listen to my dr advice. It just makes me sad that I won't be able to have anymore kids

I had my 3rd c-section a year ago. I was also told my uterus was thin and when I asked if that meant I shouldnt have anymore kids, my OB replied "I wouldnt" :/ Well, she was a new OB with not much experience, so I do plan to visit a more experienced OB from my practice and ask her opinion. I would have iked another child, but now that my OB has put this fear into me, I am not sure I would have the guts. From what I have read online, the main risk we are facing with a thin uterus is spontaneus rupture in pregnancy and the main way to prevent that seems to be early delivery and sometimes bedrest. I have been on these boards for years and I remember a woman loosing a 5 month baby this way, but I dont recall how many c-sections she had had, or what type on incision. I remember she said she reached up to pin clothes on the line and ruptured, she said she knew she was taking a huge risk with the pregnancy and also that she wouldnt try again I hope that someone else can chime in with some info that make offer us both some hope. <3 I will let you know what my OB says, I am going to get on making that appointment!

I think that I would take my drs advice....i read in a past post that you had questions about the spinal a few years back (i was searching through past posts trying to get an answer about my concerns about the spinal lol) I was wondering how things went with the spinal...my fear about it are the same as yours were (possibly feeling like I cant breath etc) I had tne epidural with my first and would getting a spinal this time and I am sooooooo nervous about it..

That was probably 3.5 years ago with my second child. I ended up with an epidural. My Dr. doesn't do spinals. The epidural was fine. My bp dropped pretty low with my second, but I didn't have that problem this time.
