  • they say you're supposed to wait 18 months (that's what my dr. told me), but i got pregnant with my 3rd baby the same time as you and everything was fine. the dr. was not concerned and didn't yell at me or anything lol

  • I got pregnant at 11 months after my first c-section and everything was fine with my second pregnancy.

  • Most likely you will be fine.  Just take it easy.

    I've had 5 c-sections.  I was pregnant 6 months after the first and 4 months after the 2nd and each one was just fine.  The easiest pregnancy was my 3rd despite having just had major surgery and having 2 small children to chase around.  I felt great the whole time and the baby came out just fine (they are 10, 9 and 8 now).
