I had a c-section withson a year ago and im 3 months pregnant again. I conceived when he was 10 months. Im just wondering if theres any other mommys who got pregnant again a year or year in a half after a c-section? Im a little scard and worried b/c i heard the uterus ruputuring and everything...I dont know if the type of incision matters, i had a bikini incision when i had my c-section with my son.Im definitly going to talk to my midwife but i would like to hear what you all have to say as well

My sister in law got pregnant around the same time spand as you and her 2nd pregnancy went well. Just like her first. I dont think its anything to worry about unless your doctor says anything. In most cases you will get anothe c-section for this pregnancy. And she also had the bikini cut too.

I got pregnant when my son was about 14 month old. The doc doesn't seem to have a problem with it. Chances are I will have to have another c-section with this one also to avoid any problems that may arise. I am going to try and have a VBAC (vaginal after c-section) and if I don't progress after my 38 week check up then we are going to do a c-section at 39 weeks to avoid any rupturing. I know they say to wait a year before getting pregnant again but I didn't think I would get pregnant again. Knowing all I do about my personal c-section I am more afraid to have a natrual birth now. Kind of wierd but I would rather have a c-section again. Well hope this helps you.

I read that you should wait at least 9 months after a c-section before you get pregnant again. I had one with my first and then when she was 8 or 9 months I found out I was pregnant again. I just had my 2nd child in June via c-section....and (stupid me) I'm now around 8 weeks pregnant with my 3rd! 10 months should be just fine....I didn't have any problems when I ws pregnant with my second....hope this makes you feel better...

A friend of mine got preggo 6 months after having a c section, had a much larger baby the second time and everything went great. She also had the bikini incision. I am sure everything will be fine!

this is worrying to me to! i want to start trying for a baby in march as my son will be 14 months old but i really don't want another c-section as i am larger the healing can be a bit longer and with the chance of getting infections! i really want a naturally birth next time as i felt i missed out alot by having a c-section it was an emergency but only because i got to 3cm and stopped dilating but i was induced at 41 weeks and half i got told there shouldn't be any reason why i cant have a natural birth next time round but i don't want to have a rupture or a c-section :( x
