Post subject: pregnancy after c-section??
Ok so i am not on the pill yet because i am waiting for next af. I have been tracking ov and avoiding sex around that time.
I started getting ewcm a week ago and we went bk home to stay at my mums last weekend and i had lots of twinges and the ewcm stopped. I didnt have any ov sticks but assumed i had ovulated because the twinges. I thought it was strange i didnt get my intense ov pains i usually get but guessed maybe it happened in the night.
Me and oh did the deed last night and i woke up to really intense ov pains the early hours of this morning!!
I am concerned because i only had a c-section 3 months ago!! If i did fall.pg would i put myself and my potenti unborn child in danger?
After all the years we have been ttc and the 7 times i have been pg (4 mc and 2 chemical pgs) i have only ever caught when i bd whilst actually ovulating and i as i bd a few hours before i dont think it will happen but i know there is still a chance! Xx

The risk is obviously rupturing the scar. My friend has given birth to her second baby after getting caught pregnant so quickly after a section. She had an emergencey the first time round due to making no progress then was ready for a natural the second time round but as her little boy had passed a bug onto her they didn't want to risk leaving her in labour so emergencey sectioned her a second time round. They monitor you more regular during pregnancy to ensure your internal scar doesn't rupture and same for whilst being in labour. They do say to leave it 3 years after a section for the best chance of having a vbac afterwards but other than that you should be fine xx

Thanks hun. I had section for the same reason.
It just scares me if i am.plus i dont want two this close together - because i dont want to much attention taken away from my son. I was also desperate for a vbac next time. I really really dont want another section.
If i am then i will cherish this baby as mych as my son. Just scared i guess.
Also my lp for my last two cycles has only been 2 days so i know my hormones must still be all over the place xx
