  • Are you sure it's not just from giving brith? If you are breastfeeding that can also stop your period from coming.

  • Well... It's not a great idea but if your pregnant then what can you do? It would be about a year in-between c-sections, it's not a lot of time but I think you'll be okay. I had mine 15 months apart and I was okay. The good thing is, you only had one previous c-section so the risk isn't as high. The bad thing with c-sections is that theres always that small risk. I'd say, enjoy your pregnancy and baby. IF something would go wrong they can most always save baby and you, you just might have to have a hysterectomy. (however you spell that). For me, it was a risk I'm willing to take for having children. I'm due in march, so that will be 14 months apart and this is my third c-section. good luck1
