  • WHY THE URGENCY TO HAVE MORE CHILDREN??? FOUR VAGINAL BIRTHS AND A CESEAREAN? ARE YOU TRYING TO START A BASEBALL TEAM? HOW FAR APART ARE THESE KIDS? DON'T YOU THINK THAT MAYBE A BIT OF 1 ON 1 QUALITY TIME WITH EACH ONE WOULD BE NICE? DO YOU KNOW THE LONG TERM AFFECTS OF MULTIPLE PREGNANCIES ON YOUR BODY? I HOPE YOU ARE DOING ALOT OF EXERCISE NOW TO HELP KEEP YOUR BODY FROM PROLAPSE (UTERINE AND RECTAL) PLUS YOU NEED TO LEAVE TIME BETWEEN BIRTHS SO YOUR BLOOD CAN BUILD UP (multiple births is ******n Iron AND B-12 in the RED blood count) IT'S OBVIOUS YOU ARE SEXUALLY ACTIVE- BUT HOW IS YOUR ROMANTIC LIFE (with all those kids around and constantly pregnant) :confused: DOES YOUR HUBBY WANT MORE KIDS TOO? YOU GUYS MUST HAVE WON A LOTTERY TO AFFORD ALL THOSE HUNGRY MOUTHS. MAYBE YOU SHOULD PUT IT TO A VOTE! bEST OF lUCK

  • How Rude Are You.. I Only Hope You Dont Have Children, With An Attitude Like That. I Had A Stillborn & Have 4 Children, Who I Devote My Entire Life To, & Enjoy Doing So. I Do Not Work & Therefore Can Provide All Of My Children With One On One. How Pig Headed You Are To Make Judgemental Comments About My Relationship, Sex Life & The Ability To Afford My Children.These Children Are My Whole Life, And If You Find That Sad, Then I Can Only Assume That You Are So Self Evolved & Selfish & That Would Be Why You Cannnot Understand My Desire To Have Another Child. Next Time, Dont Offer Your Advice Unless

  • It takes at least 6 months for the uterus stitch to heal up. Unfortunately, if you have had C-section there is a likelihood for the repeated C-section.

  • Tnak, I think its great that you are having those children. I myself have 6 children. My husband and I togeather have 8, mine, his, and ours. I had 6 of them myself. My youngest is 5 and my oldest is 16. I did have all my children natral but I am pretty sure you should wait at least 6 mons. before getting pregnant again. The longer you wait the less chance of uterine rupture or of the scar separating. Good luck to you and your growing family.

  • tnakhoul, I think it's wonderful that you can have all these children. I am one of 7 and my husband is one of 15. I would love to have more, but only God gives, and he has given us one, which I'm thankful for. I think whenever God plants that little seed in you for another child, that's when you are ready...I have a friend who has had 3 c-sections, and her oldest turned 3 in Oct, and she also had her third in Oct, so they are hardly 3 years apart. My sister-in-law had a emergency c-section for her first, and was able to go natural for her next two. It all depends on your doctor, what he wants and is willing for you to do. Now for me, I had a c-section, after 12 hours of labor, and wouldn't want to go through labor again, I'll go for the c-section immediatly. My doc, also said I wouldn't be able to have any normal unless they are real tiny...my son was 9lb 9oz, too big for me. Hope all turns out ok. Brenda

  • No, that's not true. IT used to be many years ago, but not any more. I have several sister-in-laws who have had c-sections, and now have had vaginal deliveries.

  • There is no set amount of time to suggest, other than waiting at LEAST six months. A C section is very invasive, and you shouldn't rush into trying to have more children unless you have great energy and are in otherwise amazing health. I recommend giving it time, and allowing your body to heal and get yourself back in balance. Take the best prenatal supplement you can afford, and start taking it now to give yourself the best starting point. Too many births close together can really injure your Kidney essence in Chinese Medicine. So just be careful and make sure your body is ready for another pregnancy. Best wishesDOM

  • I had 2 c-sections, they were both breech! I got pregnant with my third without planning only 6 months after I had my baby, to tell you the truth , although they say 6 montsh wait at least but if you can wait for a year it is much better for you. I am only 15 weeks now but I can barely move, my body aches all over, I need extra calcuim and extra Prenatal Vit. I had to stop nursing my little one because my body could not do that any more, I am looking for a third C-section coz it will be riskt to go for vbac especially that my scars did not fully heal yet....in another word I love my children so much and I am happy that I will be blessed with a third one but I wish it did not happen that fast, I like being pregnant and wish I could enjoy this one, but I am so tired that I just can't wait until it is over.Good luck

I had my son in March 07 by emergency c-section. Love him dearly and like yourself cannot wait to have my next baby (hoping to have a total of 4). Considering that I would like to have my next baby vaginally, I was told I needed to wait at least 12 months. Best of Luck,AgW

  • well I have had 3 c-sections. my doctor told me you should really wait at least a year so you know that everything has healed. My doctor also told me that if you have babies like I do that are over 8 pounds you can not deliver vaginal successfully after a c-section. he said babies that are over 8 pounds can burst your uterus. you can have vaginal births after c-sections, but I wouldnt advise it unless the baby is small. you should really talk to your doctor because he will know what is best for you. thanks

  • I have 2 beautiful girls one is 3 years old and the other is 8 months and they were both cesarian, now im pregnant again with another girl...lol.. and im 22 weeks...and i really wanted a vaginal birth but unfortunetly its another cesarian,,Also here in Puerto Rico I could not find a doctor that would accept me having a vaginal birth they all say it's too risky for me and the baby,,I dont really know exactly how long you have to wait but i would say the same time it took the baby to be born "9 months" remember your body needs to go back to the way it was... I wish you the best of luck with your growing family and dont listen to rude comments sometimes people are so ignorant...God Bless :D
