My husband and I have recently discovered that we are pregnant with our fourth child, a rather big surprise for us. However, I am beginning to get a little nervous after researching the possible complications of having a fourth c-section. Anyone out there have any experience, both positive or negative they can relate to a mama who is getting more and more stressed by the moment?

I am pregnant with number three and it will be c/s number three. We asked my OB to tie my tubes with the surgery and she isn't sure that she agrees. But then she remembered our frozen embryos.
Anyhow, I asked about having more than three c/s and shouldn't that be a medical reason to have my tubes tied. My OB wasn't concerned and told us not to worry.

i researched this as well.
i only have one child but i want more.
from everything i have read, ss long as you have a low transverse scar, then risks are much lower.
c-sections are sugery so as with any surgery there are always risks.
most obs will tell you if there could be more of a risk with the next one if you have complications.
if your ob is ok with it then don't worry.
(i know its hard not to worry lol)
i hope for a safe and healthy delivery for you.
i would love to know more about this as well.

My sis had 4 C/S and was told by the doc he felt safe doing up to 6.
