Hi ladies, here's my story....I've had 2 CS's, the first Dec/05 after fetal distress (all's well) and the second Jan/08 after it was detected by U/S that my uterine wall was too thin to allow me to attempt a VBAC so I was taken in for a CS.

This is such a difficult question b/c we do not know your medical history explicitly... your doctor is going to be extra cautious... that's how they are.... so it's hard to say.


My gut tells me that you should just follow your timeline... have babies when you want! But be cautious. If you need to... get a second opinion... but don't give up on the dreams for your family unless you have very specific reasons for medically waiting.


HTH... G/L!

Hmmm...by the OB not seeing you until Feb do you mean Feb 2010?!?! My OB told me after have c/s #3 last Aug that I would only be able to have 1 more because my uterine wall is getting thin also and would only be able to "hold" one more pregnancy with few if any complications. He said after that I would run into the possibility of rupture. My OB asked me to wait AT LEAST 1 year before getting pg again, waiting 2 years

thanks, and yes Feb 2010 is what I meant. Which is way too long.

I was always told that after 6 months it was okay to start trying again, the scar is healed enough. I dont think your uterine wall actually gets thicker the longer you wait.


I'd just go for it, you might end up with a third c/s, but its not the end of the world. You can always try for a VBAC again and then if you cant you cant.


Good Luck :)
