Has anyone had a 3rd c-section? Or a c-section with tubes tied? Is it any worse than other c-sections? Having 3rd c-section with tubes tied in November.. Pretty nervous about it.

I had my third c/section in May and my tubes tied at the same time. It was absolutely fine. No different to the previous c/sections (in fact it was easier than my first). I was up and about within hours and driving within a week. I know there are stories that having a TL makes recovery take longer (not sure why - you're already being all cut open) but I really didn't experience that at all.

Try not to worry. Just enjoy the last few months of your pregnancy - I have bump envy!

Yes, I had my third section and had my tubes tied this year. Even though the surgery had more complications than the last 2, I recovered very quickly and was back to normal so fast. Best recovery yet.
