How long after your c-section did you conceive again Lock Rss

I have just had DS by c-section 3 months ago were goin to stop after that but have just decided we would like one more just wondering how quick people have conceived after a c-section.
5mths for me but it was an accident. I think they do like you to wait a year so the muscles that they cut through can begin to heal again.
I carried twins second time around so the risk of them seperating and of my scar splitting was quite huge
I fell pregnant when DD1 was 3 and half months,but was a surprise- was still fully BF and expressing so thought no way would we get pregnant straight away.So the girls are 53 weeks apart

I fell pregnant again 5 months after I had my c-section. I had no problems and my Obstetrician said there was no real need to wait 12 months.

What did your doctor say about falling pregnant so quick?? how did you cope with 2 young ones?
I found out i was having another one when my twins were 6 months and all was fine and i had an infection in my cut from the hospital for 2 month with the twins.

I fell pregnant 3 months after my son was born via c section, I had no problems with second pregnancy and my obstetrician seem to think that there were no issues with being pregnant so soon after, although if I went into natural labour with second baby I would have been watched closely because he said he doesn’t like to give too much pain relief drugs in a VBAC because it can mask problems that may arise from previous c section.

Happy to say my little girl was born by another c section 40 weeks and 2 days after my first baby. Having a 1 year old and a new born was surprisingly easy, it can be a challenge now though with a 2 year old and a 1 year old both wanting my attention at the same time. It’s all worth it smile

Nothing was said to me at all,was even allowed to try for a VBAC.And when DD2 was born midwives joked around that i should wait for awhile before falling pregnant again.
At first it was a little hard as DD1 was a premmie baby and had medical problems so when her sister was born it was hard work but very rewarding.And now they are older it great, sorta like having twins as somethings they are doing together,eg toilet training,socialising.

it seems im i have a bigger gap then most of you my lil boy was 2 in july i feel start of oct after i had Jackson they doc advised it would be best to wait minimum of 6-12 months but after reading your stories maybe not sucha threat a friend of mine who was in the same boat was told 2 years to let your body heal so everyone is told something different..
I'm due 3rd June n Jackson will be 3 on the 3rd july so it should be interesting!
Good luck with it all
