    Hello lovely ladies,
    Feel free to say I'm mental but as my little boy grows and changes I am more and more broody! He's 7 months on the 26th and I honestly want to start trying again but I had a c section and the longer I wait the better chance I have at vbac it's not essential I have a vbac of just like to,so I don't know what to do really. I just love him so much and honestly being a mum is something I never thought I could be due to issues conceiving and the viola I got pregnant haha. I've always wanted a lot of kids and my hubby is broody too but because I had a c section shouldn't I be more careful? Any other mums who had c sections and got pregnant soon after? Thank you xxx

    Hi I've experience with this to an extent. I had my c section July 2013 and was pregnant with my 2nd August 2014. I did end up having another c section but that was because I didn't go into labour myself and was 10 days over n scunnered so took the planned c section route. My hospital wouldn't start me after previously having a c section no matter how much time is left in between.

    My Friend had her 1st c section in may 2013 and was pregnant in Sept 2013 lol she had 2 healthy little boys she did have 2 sections but that didn't depend on her not waiting long enuf. Also she's pregnant with her 3rd and due now in June.

    I'm already planning my 3rd I can't bloody wait to have another baby xx

    I was pregnant with my second 9 months after a c-sec and had a vbac second time. Ended up with forceps but that was because she was back to back. I didn't have any problems with the time gap!

    I had my first Feb 2014 and was fell pregnant with my second may/June 2015. Just had her in Feb and I had my vbac no issues at all. I was advised with my first to wait a year before falling pregnant and during my pregnancy they said that a 2 year gap put you at slightly lower risk (it's tiny anyway) of scar rupture.

    Tbf I was pregnant earlier but unfortunately I miscarried that baby. I'd just say go for it when you feel ready.

    I had Luisa 24th may 2014 and found out I was pregnant with Mitchell 20th Feb 2015, I had an emergency c-section with Luisa but managed a vbac with Mitch and that was only 18 months after. I went in to have a planned c-section but as I was already 4cm they said they could break my waters and I could try naturally. So glad I did as the recovery time was so much less and with 2 under 2 you definitely need to be back on your feet quicker then the first time. Good luck xx
