Hi Tammy and Welcome!


It's so great to have you here as I'm sure that you'll be able to provide much experience for many of the C section Mommy's that pop in. I am Heide, and I've had 3 Cs, but I hope to start TTC for #4 here soon! :)

Hi, Heide! I am so pleased to hear of your dr! I am worried more this time around.

Tammy~it's good to see another mom who has had many c-sections; i will be having my 4th probably the last week in February(don't have the exact date scheduled yet), and i am nervous!


You don't hear too often of women having more than 3, so it's nice to know there are other moms out there who have had more than that!


I am very nervous about the surgery itself; i will be delivering at a different hospital with a different dr than i had with my other c-sections, and i break out into a cold sweat whenever i think about it! I am worried a bit about scar tissue from my previous surgeries, plus i have an anterior placenta (although it's not attached to my scar or anything)...


Anyway, enough rambling from me lol. Keep up posted!

I am hoping, like you, that my c-section is scheduled as close to 39 weeks as possible, to give the baby

I always feel kind of guilty wh my 4th was 38 wks. Yes my dr was being a little paranoid about my blood pressure. he said I was at the high end of normal, but my last appt he had said if I wasn't planned to go in that week he would make me that day. I think he was overreacting though.


But the real reason was because my dds had a ballet recital the week after ds was born.

Hello ladies, I am new to this board also. I am so glad I found a c-section board! :) I am scheduled to have my 3rd C-sec on Thursday. I am sooo excited but at the same time nervous. I am so relieved to find other mommies that had alot more then that. I was always told that 4 is the most!
