  • If you believe in your doctor and his/her competence, then stop worrying. Your not a thefirst woman to have 4 c-sections I'm sure. You'll be fine. I am very sorry for your loss btw

  • What are you worried about? The pregnancy? or your lifestyle? I'm confused.

    As far as that, we are similar. I , too, have had 4 cesareans, one being a stillborn. I just had my 4th this past march (and she is fine :-)

    As you probably already know, the risks of complications (bleeding and rupture) go up with each cesarean. When I was delivered, my doc was horrified at my uterus. no more babies for me.
    So, it is something to think about. Some people say they will never have more than 3.
    Oh and I healed up ok. I had some seepage (sp?) for a while...and raw areas from being cut so many times in the same spot...
