Pregnancy after c-sec delivery

Salam semua...

Mrs. Moon still not visit me yet...  The chances of my test would be +ve is increased by now... huhuu...

Papa and my BFF, Mama Kema told me to do my own test as to be sure about this... Yeah, it might good for me to now earlier if there is 'somebody' growing in me...  So, I've decided to buy the UPT test kit right after the office hour today...

Nervous? Of cos I am!  

I had done a few reading about 'pregnancy after c-ser delivery' on google..  Here, I share with all of u...

"The usual advice is that you should wait a year after one caesarean section before becoming pregnant again. The longer your scar has to heal, the better, especially if you want a vaginal birth next time. At the very least, you should give your body a rest of six months before trying to conceive again. 

In most caesarean sections, a cut is made into your belly and uterus (womb) just along the top of your pubic hair. It's called a bikini cut. It will usually have healed well three months after your baby's birth. 

But the longer it's left, the stronger the heal will be. And a strong heal may cause fewer problems over time. This may particularly matter to you if you want to try for a vaginal birth or VBAC (pronounced veeback) next time. 

There is a very low risk of your caesarean scar tearing with VBAC. This is called uterine rupture. Even though the risk is low, it may increase if there is a short gap between your pregnancies. 

A short gap can also increase the chance that you'll have problems with your placenta. These may include the placenta being low-lying, called placenta praevia, or the placenta separating from your uterus wall, called placental abruption

This may sound alarming, but the risks of rupture and problems with the placenta are still very small. Most women who have a smaller gap between pregnancies have no problems at all during a VBAC. 

There are other advantages to having a longer interval between babies, whether you've had a caesarean or not. Read our article on age gaps between siblings to find out more. 

About a quarter of all births in the UK are by caesarean section. Many women don't realise how long it takes to recover. You are likely to feel exhausted and very sore afterwards. It can take several months to get back to your day-to-day activities. So giving yourself a really good rest after your first caesarean can only benefit you and your next baby."

"As a general rule, you should probably hold off on trying to conceive again for 18 to 23 months — about the same waiting period recommended for women who deliver vaginally.

That may seem like a long time, but you've just had major surgery in addition to giving birth and you need to let your body recover and replenish lost nutrients. For instance, you may be anemic because of the iron transferred to your baby and placenta during pregnancy, as well as the blood loss you suffered during childbirth. Women who deliver via c-section lose twice as much blood — about two pints on average — as women who deliver vaginally.

Studies have also shown that women who conceive less than six months after giving birth may have a higher risk for complications such as a ruptured uterus or a premature or low-birth weight baby. You'll need some time to adjust to your new life as a parent, too, before you add another baby into the mix. By giving yourself plenty of time to heal and to get acclimated to parenthood, you'll give your next baby the best start in life.

That said, if you do get pregnant less than 18 months after a c-section, don't panic. Taking at least an 18-month break between births is a guideline designed to reduce your risk of complications, but many women get pregnant sooner and do just fine.

In fact, if you're in your late 30s, it might make more sense to begin trying to conceive nine to 12 months after having a c-section. It's not uncommon for women over 35 to have trouble getting pregnant with the second baby, and the risk of having difficulty conceiving increases with age. The best time to get pregnant again can differ from woman to woman, so talk to your healthcare provider about your specific circumstances."
