Hi, could you ask the group if anyone has gotten pregnant two months after having a c section and their experiences with it?
Woa! That’s bad news bears!
I’ve had 4 c-sections.
You’re supposed to let your body heal for 2 years after a c-section before getting pregnant again.
Granted, I got pregnant with my second baby a little over a year after my first and everything was fine. In fact, she was my easiest pregnancy and smoothest c-section delivery. However, I got pregnant with my fourth a year and a half after my third and the scar tissue had grown so extensively that by 5 months I could barely walk the 30 feet to the first floor bathroom from my sitting/resting chair.
For the question at hand, I would be worried about rupturing or tearing open the healing incision if pregnant within two months of a c-section. My advice is to speak with an OBGYN doctor or mid-wife as soon as possible!
I had a freind that this happened to she went through with the pregnancy she was just on bed rest the whole pregnancy. She was also only 4’11" I don’t know if that had anything to do with it…
I did. My littlest ones are 11.5 months apart and both were born via c-section. My pregnancy was normal and went well and so did the c-section. I feel like I recovered much faster than I did the first time.
I got pregnant 2 months after my 4th c-section. My external incision had split open and was healing still as I was growing another human inside already. I survived but I definitely took it easy and was scared to death the whole time
My mum did, she had my brother threw c-section the 1st jan then fell pregnant near enough straight away and my other brother was born decemeber the same year
my first and second where three years apart after my second i got pregnant with my third 9 months after then had my third and got pregnant 8 months later with my fourth it took a toll on my body lots of scar tissue but babys where all healthy and they still are they are now 7 4 2 and 1
Yes i got pregnant 6 weeks after had healthy 8 pound baby and then 2 more c sections within 4 years!
My sister knew another teacher that lost her baby that way. I was told to wait a year to heal before getting pregnant again because otherwise problems can arise.
Ouch. Bed rest and lots of monitoring. I haven’t heard great stories but I have heard some good!
You’re supposed to wait 6 weeks to have sex, so no I definitely did not. I was paranoid about healing.
Hopefully you’re healed enough when baby starts to grow, or that can be super duper dangerous for you. Your uterus will be so thin.
I wish you the best. Good luck.
Yes I did, I had a csection in February, fell pregnant 8 weeks later… bub arrived 8 weeks early, not sure if it’s because my body didn’t have time to heal but I ended up having 2 csections in one year, my second was born in dec
Mine are around 4 days shy of 13m apart. My first was a csection
Did no problems her …actually had a nb 3 yr old 4yr old and 5yr old
I got pregnant about 2m after my c-section. Still carrying baby number 2.
I did, right about 2&1/2m postpartum. It’s been a rough pregnancy. Mentally and physically. Definitely don’t recommend. This is a birth control baby and I definitely was not planning to get pregnant so soon.
There’s a year gap between my daughter and my current pregnancy ’ I’ll be welcoming my boy in April via c section
Research shows that getting pregnant less than six months after a C-section can increase your risk of complications, such as ruptured uterus or a low birth weight baby.
yes i did… i had an emergency section, and while healing i over did it, and opened my incision 4 weeks later, then got pregnant again straight away and had a second section,
everything went fine, my scar/incision was about tender as my belly was growning and did get a small bit sore towards the end, but all in all no complications…
if you would like to mail me, id happily try answer any questions you have, if i can…
I believe I was 6 months after mine. Went on with a perfectly fine pregnancy, easy vaginal birth too
