How many c-sections?

Posted by on Feb. 9, 2013 at 6:16 PM

I have had 2 c-sections and I have two children. I want 6 children but I've been told having more than 3 c-sections is really pushing it. Twins aren't likely for me but I just want to know how many people out there have had multiple healthy c-sections? Are the pregnancies after each more difficult? What about the recovery? What does your incision look like and did you have a hard time losing your baby belly/weight afterwards? Thanks :-)

My OBs have said I can have up to 4 but I wouldn't do it because this one i'm pregnant with now is my last (and second c-section).

Do you prefer to continue having more cesareans?
  It is safest to avoid unnecessary risks and have normal, vaginal deliveries so you might want to aim in that direction.    *Lots of help here!

I would love to deliver vaginally but I didn't dilate after several hours of labor with either of my children and the last time I was 1cm away from rupturing my uterus!!!

I know that it helps to plan for no vaginal exams.     ;-)

Per the ACOG (American Congress of OB/GYN's) you are very likely a good candidate for a vaginal birth after two c-sections (VBA2C)! : )
