its reccommended 18 months plus as you won't be healed properly and there's risk of long term damage with utine ruptures etc and to replenish lost nutrients. It's a major operation and another baby so soon can put massive strain on your body which won't be properly healed.
I know how you feel. I had my daughter a week ago via C Sevtion and already have thoughts of another pregnancy in my head. But I'm not sure whether it's just hormones and emotions. I'm going to give it a year I think as I'm 34 now and don't want to leave it too late....xx
Don't get me wrong I love my son to bits. I just don't want to wait a couple of years and have to do the sleepless nights again. I just really want a brother or sister for him, would hate for him to be an only child x
Hi I had an emcs with my daughter in January this year and I am currently 35 weeks pregnant with baby number two I am due 2 days before her first birthday. So far my pregnancy has been straight forward apart from being tired and I'm gonna try for a vbac
I had my DD via Section on October 21, 2011. After her birth, the doctor told me that we should try to wait at least a year to give my body time to fully heal. We didn't quite make it that far, I got pregnant again 11 months later with this little one!
I was nervous at my first appointment, but the doctor examined me and said I was healthy and should not have any issues carrying this baby to term. They said the 1 year is a guideline, and I wasnt that far off of it.
I have had a wonderful, healthy pregnancy so far!
That being said, depending on what they had to do in your section, there may be additional time needed for you to heal, especially if there were complications or special cutting/things they had to do. So I would definitely consult with your doctor for what is best for you!
They recommend the waiting time because they cut open your uterus to take out the baby. That takes way longer to heal than most people realize. If you get pregnant too soon it can complicate the pregnancy as the uterus begins to stretch if it hasn't healed fully.
