how long did u or will u wait before getting pregnant again?
Hi ladies i had my 9lb 5 baby 4 days ago via emc due to waters breaking more than 48hours before she was born failed induction didnt dialate passed 6cm and baby couldnt fit to make her way out. This sort of labour was a complete shock for me! I asumed id have a natural labour bounce back and be pregnant again very quickly but now ive had a section i know tthings are different and our plans will have to change..
How long will you or did you wait before falling pregnant again?
What made you wait that time?
How was your pregnancy those who have alredy got pregnant after section is there more checkups and apointments ? X
We were ntnp from when ds was 5/6 months, got pregnant straight away, bit of a surprise after taking 18 months to get preg with him! I am so exhausted, in a way I regret not taking precautions, but they will be close! And I guess less jealousy. Was surprised not to get a telling off from midwife! Was told I wasn't the first and wouldn't be the last
I had my first 3 months ago by Emergency c section - if it was just up to me we'd be trying again now! Hubby wants to wait until LO is 1 but im hoping we can bring it forward a bit... the doc at my 8 week check up said they advise not to TTC again for at least 3/4 months after, however the doc at the hosp said 2 years!!! So i would say you dont have to wait any longer than you might have done if you had a normal birth... i dont think there will be more appointments 2nd time round, apparently if there is any chance of anything being wrong though ie. high or low blood pressure, bleeding etc you wont be given the option of a VBAC and will have to have another c section and you're monitored more during labour but fingers crossed if the 2nd pregnancy goes well you can try for a VBAC if you'd like one x
I was told to wait a year before ttc but have known women who waited as little as 3 months. The risks are greater if you conceive less than 6 months but only slightly. If you are wanting a VBAC your chances will be greater the longer you wait and I understand that with the rarely performed vertical sections medical advice is to wait 3 years which is what we will be doing not because I had such but because I want to give myself the best possible chance of a vbac.
I was told "No babies for 18 months" so we will be abiding by that rule. We were going to TTC when baby was 18 months but because I desperately want a VBAC we might wait until he's 2 years old to start trying again. This also gives me plenty of time to lose a lot of weight
