Re: How soon after C-sec did you have second?

A year is commonly recommended. 18 months is even better. Many people have had them closer together without issues though.

For us we had our first 2 children 4 years and 2 months apart. Our 2nd and 3rd children are 8 years and 1 day apart. Not by planning though. It takes us a long time to get pregnant.

Re: How soon after C-sec did you have second?

I got pregnant 2 months after my 1st c/s (miscarriage), then 8 months after c/s (miscarriage), and then 11 months after c/s (live baby). Then after my 3rd son (2nd c/s), I got pregnant when he was 9 months old. I had 3 c-sections in the 3 years. Whew. I did have scarring issues, but they cleaned me up good (removed a lot of it) after my 4th baby (3rd c/s) and haven't had the pain I had after my 3rd son. Yay!

I got pregnant 16 and a bit mos after first c-section (misscarried) and then pregnant with DS2 6 weeks after the miscarriage so around 19 mos after section.

My cousin has two kids both born by c-section and they are 19 mos apart and DH's cousin has 3 kids all born 18 mos apart and all 3 c-sections.

My first 2 were 15months apart! I've had 5 Csections total with varying lengths b/w each--but 15 months is the shortest!

My fastest turn around for a classical c-section was 26 months. However I wanted it to be faster then that but it didn't happen.

I was pregnant four months after my c-section and had no problems during the pregnancy or birth.

Not close here, but I had a vbac after my c-section (35mo apart).

A friend of mine had her kids 18mo apart and did a TOL, but decided to have another c-section before hitting transition.

No c sections here but my friend had an emergency one with her 1st son & exactly 11 months later had a vbac home birth with her 2nd son & 13 months later gave birth to her 3rd child a daughter at home and then when her daughter was age 2 gave birth to her 4th child 2nd dd at home.

So 1 section and 3vbacs!
