You're supposed to give your body 18 months to 2 years to heal after a c-section, but you should be find. I got pregnant with my second child when my first was 8 months old.

You're supposed to wait but things happen:-) I got pregnant 8 months after my first (I also had a emergency c-section.) My second pregnancy was fine and my repeat c-section was EASY and I had no pain during recovery.

You're not the first, but I suppose it is better to wait. Congrats though! Are you excited about the news?

Why would he think he was sterile? Are you happy?

I was in the same boat. My pregnancy was very hard the second time. My body just wasn't ready to carry another baby. Take care of yourself.

You are supposed to give your body 18-24 months to heal, but many people get pregnant that soon. Some even sooner. I had a c section (not emergency), but i am being very careful! My daughter is 8 months, but my husband and i havent even decided on if we want more kids or not lol If so, Debbie will be 2...or 3..or 5...See? So unsure lol Anyway, congratulations though! Be very careful and i hope you have a safe pregnancy

You are supposed to wait. I didn't and it really did a number on my body but I also had 3 kids very close together. Just be careful next time :-)
