I know that after a C-sect there should be a "resting period" before pregnant again. How long is that? Cos I know diff gynae tells diff things..I heard anything from 8 months - 2 yrs...I know it's for fear of rupture of uterus.
So how long did you wait / are going to wait before conceiving again?
Anyone got preg before the "resting period" is over? Was it very complicated? What did your gynae do?
My gynae advised me to wait for 1 yr......
my gynae advised me to 'rest' for 1 year. she said let the uterus rest for a year before trying to concieve =)
i had been advice by 2 diff gynaes that it is best to rest at least a yr n i conceived when my #1 is 15mths old
It really depends on how your wound is healing. My gynae was very confident and told me that I can get pregnant after 3 mths of c-sect.
His reasoning was after 3 mths get preg, you have another 3 mths before your tummy starts to show. So in total there is 6 mths resting period.
Mine 1 yr too!!!
Thanks all ..looks like most mummies here are super careful not to strike during the "resting period" I miss being preggie..lol, and looks like it's mostly 1 year...
I quite like the reasoning of diymummy's gynae...
Personally I hope to have 4 little loves, but after 1 c sect, I dont know if I still can. I certainly hope that it is still possible
my gynae told me, 'you're ready to be pregnant again after 6 mths'.. i guess diff gynae have diff opinions.. but so long as your own body can take it, n csec wound healed, anytime should be ok.. hehe..
yeah... my gynae also said to try after one year.... so my elder gal was born in aug 2006 and the younger one in may 2009
both also kena csect..... so i'll be closing my 'factory' baahh... cant bear to be cut open again!
