  • If this is your 4th why are you worried? Is there something wrong with the baby? I had one with my son cried for 3 weeks but it was nothing. I couldn't tell i had surgery 2 days later. The only bad thing was my back hurt. probly from doing to much but i felt so good and couldn't help myself.

    You will do great. Take a cd and have them play it while they are doing the c-section

  • I have not. However I have a friend who has had 6... If you did it 3 times you'll be fine with one more... I wouldn't worry.

  • Yeah, we lost one baby, she was stillborn. I have all high risk pregnancies, I'm not scared if the c-section itself but just the fact that its a 4th.... the 3rd, i bleed and almost had a blood transfusion

  • Wow, I have only had two and I was leary...good luck to you momma....I am sure all will be will. So sorry for your loss, I truly don't know how you women survive that kind of thing...guess that is the cruel part of can't die of a broken heart. Just think good thoughts try to relax and think of the miracle you will have when it's over.

  • Yes. I had one in 1996, 2001, 2005, and 2007. I have a lot of scar tissue from it and won't have anymore. As long as your pregnancy is uncomplicated, you should not have problems. You are definitely more at risk, but it's not that much of a higher risk.
