    So I just got off the phone from my GP whom I'd asked about whether it's a good idea to have a 3rd csection and she's left me so stressed and worried Shes referred me to my consultant to have a chat (waiting for apmnt) but in meantime she's had a chat with another dr. Who recommended against it due to much higher risks of complications with placenta etc being the 3rd. Obviously he hasn't seen my medical notes from previous sections (both uncomplicated) but I'm now starting to think we should stop TTC... feeling super disappointed.
    Sorry for long post/rant .. anyone been through something similar?

    I’m going for my second section and asked this same question in case we wanted a 3rd section baby, and was told that the surgeon is the only one who can give you good information on your candidacy because they will have seen your scar tissue etc. I’ve been told that some ladies can’t have more than 2, others go on to have 5 or 6 sections with no problems. It all depends on your specific body and scar tissue.

    Thx for replying! My appointment with the consultant went really well.. she basically said theres no reason looking at past notes couldn't have a 3rd section or try for a vba2c... let the TTC begin!
