    Probably better question to ask your midwife or ob a little further on. One
    Lady in my DIG had adominal surgery and found out quite late in her pregnancy she should be treated as a VBAC.

    I've had 2 c sections and I'll be having a 3rd in May, no one has mentioned my previous surgery being a problem.

    Perhaps they didn't find any adhesions at your previous Caesar. Some people can be susceptible to them more than others and it's very common - up to 93% of people who've had previous abdominal surgery develop them.

    It's bands of scar tissue that stick surfaces of organs or tissues together that shouldn't be. Like bowel/bladder to uterus etc. I've see caesareans where there's being really bad adhesions and they've had to get a general surgeon in to help them get down to the uterus.

    Hoping my scar is high enough not to affect my uterus.. I see my gp on Monday to get a referral to the mater.

    This. I had a c sect on Tuesday and they had to call a urologist into theatre and put me under GA, my bladder was fused to my uterus and my uterine wall was paper thin! I, nor the Ob, knew
    about this prior to surgery.

    Becca it's not about the location of the scar that affects where the adhesions are. It's about what tissues/organs are affected during the surgery which extends well past the region of the scar.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. It would only be a concern IF you needed a caesarean and then it would be if there were adhesions might take an extra 10-15 minutes to get bub out and worst case scenario what bunny described.

    By 40 weeks pregnant your uterus will be reaching to just under your ribcage. Just mention it to the doctors and they'll let you know if there's any possible concerns.

    Thanks she's a little gem
    I'm not quite sure TBH. I've had a previous c sect and some laparoscopic abdominal surgery before.
