Are you breast feeding?

7 months after my 1st and 3 months after my 2nd c section. But I also nursed each time and that made my periods wonky.

I got pregnant when my first was 3 months old.

If you’re breastfeeding it can make it harder to get pregnant even after your periods come back, i had a c-section, was ebf, no bc, got pregnant when she was 18 months.

I lost my first baby at 26 weeks in November 10th 2013, I had an emergency c section due to preeclampsia and she was so small
She didn’t make it. My OB advised me to wait a year and of course i didn’t. I got a positive test in March and delivered a very healthy rainbow at 37 weeks in November 5th 2014 almost a year to the date.

I think it really depends on if your breast feeding and if your periods are back to normal.

My first was not planned so I always assumed I would get pregnant fairly easy the second time. Boy was I wrong!! It took us 9 months of TTC (tracking ovulation constantly, using ovulation kits to confirm, the whole 9 yards) & nothing- month after month. It was frustrating and it worried me a lot - but the month I finally decided to just relax and step back from the stress of it all, it finally happened & now we have a 3 week old baby boy!:blue_heart: It will happen, mama! Be patient with yourself :two_hearts:

8 months, 1 year, and 18 months

Having a csection doesn’t effect you getting pregnant. Everyone is different. Some women get pregnant immediately after having a baby, even though you should space it out after having a csection so your body can heal. I wouldn’t rush it

Having a c section affects fertility ??

C section & fertility are two separate topics. One doesn’t effect the other. What u need to consult with ur doctor is how long to wait after a c section to get pregnant. Just bc u want to be fully healed before stretching your belly again & possibly opening the incision for another c section.

With my 1st 2 children I got pregnant exactly 4 weeks after my c section. My 2 oldest are only 10 months apart!!!

I had a C-section 5 years ago cuz I was pregnant with twins, I ended up getting pregnant like 4-6 months after I had them.

Breastfeeding can makes it take longer. It’s like a natural b.c. I got pregnant about 14 months after my 2nd and 3rd c sections. My 2nd wasn’t breastfed, and I got prego after 14 months, 3rd was breastfed for 11 months, still got prego at 14 months. My 3 youngests are all 23 months apart.

My boys are 16m apart. I had a c section and suffer from pcos

My kids are 12 months apart

Honestly the longer U can heal your body the better I have big gaps between my kids and I’ve had 4 c-sections

all csections, not to big of gaps…

They recommend waiting 2 years to heal… i understand ppl get pregnant sooner but im just letting know i waited 2 year between my 2nd and 3rd and my 3rd pregnancy was horribly painful, I was on bedrest by 30 weeks… i understand everyone’s body is different just be ready to deal with the possibility of a rough pregnancy
