    Default 3 c-sections in 3 years

    I'm about 9 weeks pregnant and wondering if anyone has had 3 c-sections in 3 years? I'm concerned about the risks. Can you help me put my mind at ease? Milly

    Hi,
    I have had 3 C Sections. But bigger gap between pregancies.

    But wanted to say I recovered quickest with No.3. Think it was due to my body knowing what to expect.

    A 3rd C Section can be fine.

    I had 3 c-sections in 3 years and 2 months.

    My 1st was the hardest to recover from, by far. Having said that, my 3rd was harder than my 2nd, but that had more to do with the position of DD2 and how much the pushed and shoved me around to get her out.

    My scar is beautiful, one thin, transparant line, cut 3 times to let me babies into the world.

    No worries with 3 c-sections here!

    Hi There,

    I've also had 3 c/s's the last two being in less then 2 years .

    I found the third one alot more painful & harder to get over. I put this down to a few different things.

    1 - I had a toddler I couldnt resist picking up every now & then.

    2 - I also had my tubes tied so abit more poking around in there.

    3 - & lastly I assumed that having been cut open for the third time & then trying to heal around all that scar tissue inside may have also contributed.

    Good luck.. You'll be fine. Just accept the pain killers & take it easy. Easier said then done with other little ones I know but it is really important & makes a huge difference in your recovery

    His - Zoe (8) & Hannah (5)
    Mine - Jamie (13) & Brooke (9)
    Ours - Theo (2) & Daisy
