Any c-section (or otherwise) mothers here who were told after so many, your uterus is getting thin? And does that alter your choice in having any more?

the uterus likes to scar to the bladder (and pretty much anything else in there) after a c/s, so whenever you take them apart whenever you go in for the next baby, one or both ends up getting thinner and thinner which is the big reason they don't like doing too many sections-ruptured bladders aren't fun, but ruptured uteruses are fatal to mom/ babe. But your doc won't/can't know until they go in there/or have been in there. They can give you stats on it I'm sure

Lucky mother to five!

I tend to ignore most advice. But something someone said years ago has stuck with me: you have to respect your body. You have to take care of it. There are risks to everything. If you believe the risk is too great, I would stop. If you don't believe it, find out more.
