I am due in August for my 4th c-section. My oldest is almost 4, my daughters are 21 months and 8 months. After the last csection I've had a lot of pain in the scar area, spreading to my back. I'm worried that the scar hasn't healed enough, or that lifting my other children will eventually become impossible.Answer Question
If you already have pain you should probably stop lifting them now. Talk to your doctor. Unless you are committed to having a huge family, you need to talk to somebody about birth control. And even if you do want a large family 2-3 year spacing is achievable. You might want to also look into VBAC. You are putting tremendous wear and tear on your body not only with children so close, but with the c-sections. Did the pain exist before you got pregnant? Could it be ligament pain?
