    Congrats on your pregnancy!
    I had a few complications during my 3rd c/s (not related to having 3 c/s though) so recovery was a little longer but if those complications didn't arise then it would of been no different then my first and second. I was still up and walking within a few hours, discharged 40 hours after birth and back to driving within a week but the pain was felt more then the others. Hoping to go back for c/s 4 some time next year if baby 5 goes to plan

    Hi there, congrats on your pregnancy! I had my 3rd c-section on 21st March and felt great after it, no pain at all. For me each one got easier!

    I only stayed there 2 nights and felt I could drive myself home from the hospital (which I didn't). But I was back at my DD's schools on the way home from hospital picking them both up with my partner. Good luck I hope you have a good experience aswell

    I've had 3 c-sections (as you know :P ) I found it easy 3rd time around as far as the surgery went, I think it was a little bit more physically sore to recover from then my 2nd, they did staples (1st was staples and 2nd was stitches) and they did them quite tight too due to being 3rd baby. It actually really hurt getting them out, each one was painful. I felt back to normal within 1.5 weeks though, I stayed in hospital for 6 days due to bub having high jaundice levels and he spent time in SCN because of breathing issues and a heart murmur at birth. I loved the experience though, I had the curtain down and got to see bub be pulled out, I just felt more connected and relaxed about the experience, I was chatting away in recovery and felt relaxed that bub was in good hands in SCN.
    I loved my c-sections and wouldn't change a thing, I knew what to expect and how to make my recovery easier 3rd time over. No guilt for me at all, loved it.
