Paper thin uterus...pregnant again!

I have four kids my youngest is 19 months. My last pregnancy I went into labor at 34 weeks and had my third csection. The doctor that did my csection said for me not to have anymore kids because my uterus was like paper thin. I had talked to my doctor and she said it's possible but it would be a high risk. I did not want anymore kids anyway. Well I just found out i'm about 8 weeks pregnant with number 5. I made an abortion appt but after seeing the babies heart beating I could not go through with it. So i'm going to find a high risk doctor and see if he thinks I can carry the prenancy. I wanted to know has anyone else went through this or going through it now?

  • if he said to stop having kids he should have tied your tubes. Good luck I hope you find a doctor and all goes well.

  • I think a second opinion is a good idea.

  • Good luck, great job on not aborting, you'll be fine. Plenty of drs use scare tactics like that to scare/shame patients. Nature finds a way, right?

    But after this c-section, tie those tubes.
