Hi guys ,
I need some advice concerning my c/s scar , that´s 9 months old .
I had 2 c/s before , they cut that open in the same spot twice , no problem whatsoever , through both vbac´s afterwards , but with baby number 5 I ended up with another c/s due to other issues , not scar problem related .
This time , though , they didn´t cut the old scar , they made a new cut about 2-3 cm above and it has healed so well , that you can barely even still see it after only 9 months .
I was really careful , not to lift anything heavier than my growing baby pretty much until now , so I didn´t put any avoidable strain on it .
However , I just found out , that I am pregnant again and I REALLY , REALLY want to go for a vbac .
Is the pregnancy too early for that ? I am no more than 5 weeks along , if that , so baby5 and baby6 will be about 18 months apart and if the scar has healed so well on the outside , is it a fairly safe assumption to say , that it has also healed so well on the inside ?
I usually heal very , very well anyway and I am quite tough in general .
Somebody also told me once , that if your first c/s are really long ago ( over 12 and almost 14 years ago in my case ) and you had vbac´s afterwards , you are considered like a first-time vbac ?
This really worries me , I want to have more kids in the future and I don´t have time to wait forever due to my age , so that on top of the risk of rcs , I really want to be able to pop them out the way nature intended
It would be awful , if the one thing , that stands in my way of that is , that I got pregnant to quickly after the last baby
