How many c sections have you had? Will you continue to have kids after this one or the one before? What's the cut off for c sections?

I don't really know that there is a cut off. I have heard some doctors don't like to do more than 3 on a patient but my doctor doesn't seem concerned. I will be having my 4th c-section in March. This will be my last, I'm getting my tubes tied when they do the c-section this time.

I'm having my 3rd. This will be my last...so long as I can help it lol I don't know the cut off. I think 3 is fairly average and know a few who have had 4. I've seen others post on here as many as 6.

 I have had 1 and this will be my second and last one, I'm getting my tubes tied when they do the c-section.

I've had one and then a successful vbac. Each time there's greater risk for uterine rupture. It depends on the doctor too but scheduling subsequent csect is often more beneficial for the doctor verses the patient.

I have had 2, when/if I get pregnant again it will be my 3rd and last (we don't want anymore after 3) but it depends on the doctor and how many they will do... I know some woman on here have had 8

Two so far, this will be my third. Nope, this is also my last. I don't know.

I've had one (with my 4th child) that will be my ONLY. This child will be born vbac.

I've had 2, with my most recent being in October. I'm pretty sure that we're done having kids, but if I were to have another baby, I'd mostly do another c-section. I didn't know there was a cut off for c-sections. My doctor did ask me if I wanted my tubes tied with my last c-section and I declined.

I obviously had a c-section with my multiples, they weren't going to let me push them all out! :)

Now 6 weeks pregnant with our 4th earthly baby (makes 6 with the 2 in Heaven). So I will have my 2nd c-section in Aug/Sept.

That will probably be it, unless an "oops" happens...lol. My Dr. doesn't like to do any more than 3 c-sections, but I don't know what others say! ;)
