IME fertility often returns sooner with each child so that part doesn't sound abnormal to me. I've had a traumatic birth and I lead a birth support group so I talk to a lot of women but that hasn't been mentioned. Have you talked to your OB about getting pregnant so soon after a c/s? A lot of doctors recommend waiting 12 months. JMO as I've had three c/s but I would want to wait at least that long especially if you plan to VBAC. I tend to be a little overly cautious though.

It's still early you could still get your bfp!

Hi Natalie :) It is exciting to see her back so soon after waiting so long after #1 isn't it? I had the same experience....it took me 16 months PP to get her back after #1, and only 12 weeks after #2 although it was hard to regulate my cycles for quite awhile so you are ahead of me on this one! After #3 I did get one AF at around 12 weeks again but have yet to her since.....:(
The temptation must be huge to TTC again since you are clearly O'ing again already - just be careful that it is what you want this soon and that it doesn't put your hopes of VBac and proper healing at risk.

Food for thought, I would talk to your Maternal Fetal Medicine Doc on this one. They'll guide you on what is safest for you and your next pregnancy- especially if you are planning a VBAC, some drs will have very strict policies on even attempting one within a certain amount of time of a previous c/s.

Just my 2cents, after our 1st complicated pregnancy we took great comfort having a clear plan for when to TTC our 2nd and what that pregnancy monitor wise would be like.

Wishing you peace either way! :)

AF arrived this cycle which im fine with. looking forward to ttc a summer baby! :) i love this time of year - time to get cosy in the bedroom ;)

iv actually had a complete turn around on the way i now view conception, pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding. rather exciing! i just want to bang on about it all day! there are some great support groups and women in my area and ive learned a tonne of stuff about vbac and also "infomed choice". the best phrase in my vocab ever. pregnancy #3 is going to be completely uninterferred without meddling drs. im not even going to POAS. the freedom i now feel is fantastic empowering and how i wish every mama can feel like this everyday becuase they are just so darn amazing! xxxx

Hi sorry I was having a bit of a caffeine rush when I last replied. I'm reading a really inspirational book, birthing the easy way and I've met some great ladies at a csection and vbac support group, and homebirth group. I won't be having a dr for #3 just private midwife care and doula. I'm feeling confident that everything will go smoothly providing the meddling drs just leave me be and stop over monitoring and interfering with me. I've researched uterine rupture and how to avoid it. Waiting over a year before TTC does reduce the risk of rupture but the risk is small in all cases and plenty of women go on to have a successful VBAC within a year of csection. I am actually thinking of waiting a couple more months to TTC at Christmas. Keeping options open. And as far as POAS is concerned, really I'm going to set myself free from that emotional rollercoaster, I've spent enough money on hpts and if I am pg then i will know, I want to trust my instincts. I wish I had done that throughout my last pregnancy's and it wouldn't have been so traumatic. I'm keeping charting tho so that will also give me a clue! Xxx
