Re: who has had 4+ c-sections?

Your story (the risks) is what makes me rethink a 5th baby (4th c/s)... it's so nerve-wracking cause you just don't know until you are pregnant what will happen. So glad to hear you are okay now!
Sorry, I didn't meant to leave you without an answer for so long! It was a crazy week here. I was diagnosed with complete placenta previa and suspected accreta at my routine anatomy scan at 1 day shy of 19 weeks. I had a pelvic MRI at 28 weeks that was inconclusive. There was no sign of percreta but they couldn't rule out accreta so we proceeded as though it was in fact accreta. That was the most frustrating part, not really knowing for certain. The c-hyst was definitely the correct choice, though, as pathology confirmed that it was placenta increta.
