has your doctor told you, you had a window or thin uterus?

During my last C-section with my daughter 2 years ago. The doctor who performed my c-section told me that I had a window in my uterus & the only thing holding her in was the membranes &that I can't get pregnant or I will die and so will the baby. But when I went into to my checkup a week later his partner (other doctor in office) told me that it is possible that I could have another baby in 10 years. Because there should be enough scar tissue built up(the doctor that did my C-section is now retired).... & now me and my husband would really like to have another baby & I have been looking online at what some other woman with the same issue & some of their doctors told them they would just have to have the baby a little bit earlier so they wouldn't risk the chance of going into labor and possibly having a rupture,Anyways my question is have any of you have had the same problem what has your doctor told you?

  • My sister in law had two c-sections, and her doctor told her the EXACT SAME THING!!!! She didnt listen, and got pregnant with #3...the baby died, and she was in the hospital for a while, because the baby was on the outside of her uterus...if the doc says no then I would listen, is it really worth the risk. My doctor told me to wait cause my birthcontrol made my uterus thin, so trust me I know its hard to wait, but you really should

  • my first pregnancy ended in an emergency c-section and so that pretty much made me have to have c sections with all my pregnancies- so my second c section went fine but then with my third the doc told me that my uterus was so thin he could see the baby through it and that in a few years i might be able to have 1 more baby but that was it no more after that- a year and a half later i found out that i was pregnant with my 4th son and by then i had changed docs so i had to fill him in with wut the last doc had said- but then when he did that c section he said he saw nothing wrong and to feel free to have more but to space them out a bit- and now- a year and a half later i am 5 months preggo with my 5th boy- lol and my doc is already asking me when im going to start trying for my girl! lol but yes do get some different opinions from different docs cause u dont want to jeopardize ur health but good luck! i wish u the best!
