4th C-section


Hello, I guess I'm here looking for someone who is going through what I have or has gone throug it.

I have had 3 c-sections...

1st was 7.5 years ago
2nd was 3.5 years ago
3rd was 1.5 years ago..

I've not long found out I'm pregnant again (due May) and I'm waiting to speak with my gynecologist about my situation. It's not looking good for me is it? I'm scared. The local mw told me I've had too many in a short period of time. Please anyone... give me your stories or advice xxxx

How was your uterus holding up after your last section? If it was still strong and healthy then I don't see any problem :-)

Edits to add I've had 3 c-sections, but had my tubes tied after the third. My uterus had torn (we had no idea!) so had a gaping hole, and it was also thin and stuck to my bladder and bowel from scar adhesions.

Hi huni
Try not to worry... I've had 3 sections
17.5 years ago
16 years ago
4.5 years ago

Now on to number 4 in Jan scans are ok consultant has no concerns, however she seemed relieved I am opting for sterilisation this time.

Wait until your 12 week scan appointment have your questions ready ..... hopefully your mind will be put at rest. Xx

Thank you ladies so much for your replies.

Minties- I asked my doc last week about my surgery and she said she couldn't find anything in my notes to suggest that my last c-section was difficult but I guess I won't find out until my gyne app at end of the month. Sounds scary what you have been through. I'm also going to ask for my tubes to be tied after this 4th.

Hello ckelly, good luck on your 4th c-section... I will hopefully update when I speak with the consultants. Thanks for taking the time to write me. I appreciate it xxx
