  • you'll be ok. recovery may be a little longer, but you'll be fine. tons of mom's have had 3 or more. either way, you're gonna have to be fine. after 2 c-sections, you can't have a vaginal birth.

  • I just had my 5th with no problems! My doc asked if i wanted my tubes tied this time around and i said no, he thought it was risky but during the surgery he told me he couldn't believe that I had 4 previous c-sections and that it didnt even look like i had 2 let alone the 4 others, (he was referring to the lack of scar tissue build up) so he also gave me the ok to have another baby later down the line if i want to! So dont worry! You'll be fine, and I will say a little prayer for you- good luck! and congrats

  • How were your experiences before? Are you a healthy person now? Are you wanting more babies after this?
    You could have a vaginal delivery with this baby, it's likely to be more safe than an unnecessary repeat cesarean. Is that something you want to look into?
