  • I am currently 7 weeks pregnant with my third... My 2nd is only 6 months old!!! I had a c/s with both of my 2 pregnancies. As you probably have guessed, this one was a big surprise. We definately wanted a third so I talked to my doc at my 6 week check up and she said that I should wait until my dd is at least 18 months before trying. She said that is how long it takes for the body to recover. I also discussed the c/s option with her and she said that it gets more difficult each time but that doesn't mean I shouldn't have more children. There is a higher risk of the placenta growing into the scar tissue. She said they can usually detect that fairly quickly. Although, I'm not sure what happens if that does happen.
    Definately talk to your husband about another baby! Maybe he will be as ready as you. Good luck!
