  • medically you can only have 3 c-sections cuz the doctor is cutting through muscle. so since medically you (in general) can only have 3, is this your last child?

  • My doctor just did one and it was the womans 6th. He said its gets riskier with the high number but it can be done.

  • I've had three. I had pain during my third pregnancy from scar tissue built up around my incision. After delivery, my doctor removed the scar tissue and my incision healed much smoother. After 12 years, I still get pain around the scar sometimes. I recouperated much faster from the third than the first two, probably because I had to with 6 and 3 year olds to take care of also. I had my tubes tide when I had my third. My doctor didn't recommend having more than 3 c-sections. After 3, there is a chance the scar on your uterus can rupture. Good luck!
