TTC #2 - Never thought I would be back so soon

Postby AnnaBanana23 » Tue Jun 14, 2011 9:33 am

Hello! My son will be 8 months old tomorrow and DH and I are wanting to TTC #2....well right now! We would like 2 year separation or less between our babes.

I am nursing exclusively, JUST got my first period today, and I had an emergency C-section. My doctor told me to wait at least 18 months. I have an appointment with her tomorrow and wanted to ask what the risks are for me being I had a C-section.

Is it wise to TTC this early after C-section? Anyone else in the same boat?

I'm going to be using my Clear Blue Monitor and getting back on FF. :)

I'm in the same boat as you. I had an emergency c sec 10 months ago.

I think it's recommended at least 6 months to allow everything to heal. Only thing is 18 months is usually recommended time for a VBAC however I have known people have a VBAC in less time. i'm certainly hoping on one hopefully I will be preggers after she is 12 months old so will have a bit of a chance!

Baby dust and luck to you! :-)

I had VBAC 15 months after my c-section and it went very well. My pregnancy was no different than my others. I have had 3 VBACS so far.

Good luck on TTC!!!

Just so you may take a little while for your LP to be long enough to concieve while BFing. I got my period back at 3 months PP and now at 9 months I finally have a 12 day LP. Everything I've read said that's pretty normal, could only take a few cycles to lengthen or it could be a little while. GOOD LUCK!!

I just wanted to say I had a vbac 18 months after my c-section with my first son and everything went smoothly. My doctor just wanted me to have 17 months from one delivery to the next. I cut it close, but honestly I think it would have been just as fine sooner. Good luck!

Hi! I am not sure if you remember me from the DD October group, but my DS is 9 months as of July 18 and we are going to start TTC seriously by September. I also had a c-section, unplanned, and am hoping for a VBAC. My OB said the 18 months is the time between delivery not pregnancy. So basically I just had to wait until he was 9 months ;) Are you going to try natural or do fertility treatments? I think we were both in the IVF boat last time?
