If you have had a CS (and will continue with RCS) how many are you and your doctor willing to do? My doctor pretty much said I should stop at 3 based on the amount of scar tissue I had after #2, originally she said no more than 4. What is your doctor's feelings on how many RCSs?
Note: I'm okay with 3 that's the max kids we want anyway so I have no hurt feelings over it & would be getting my tubes tied anyway.

Our plan was always for 2 kids. I'll be getting my tubes tied with my c-section next month. Can't wait to never be pregnant again .

2. When I got pregnant with #2 but doctor said he would do a repeat c-section with no questions if I was sure I was done at 2. If we were leanings towards 3, he would have made a strong argument for a vbac.

We have reassessed after each surgery. I have healed very well with each of mine.
I hope to have my fourth and last in a couple years.
Vaginal birth isn't an option for me and we want a large family. Thankfully I have had zero complications after three sections.

My doctor would feel comfortable with 3 c sections. I have 3 kids and 2 were c sections. First was unplanned, second baby vbac and my third I decided to have a c section during labor due to babies size.

I asked my doctor after my second c-section and she said three would be fine and possibly a fourth, but she would advise no more than four. I had abdominal surgeries as a child, so I want to be careful with the amount of scar tissue. It works for us anyway because we're only planning on three.

After the first, she said three. But the second was a vbac, so not sure if that changes the number.

LO#2 was a scheduled emergency c-section. If we decide to have a third I would like to try for a VBAC. My doctor said it would be possible.

My OB says he has done as many as 6 on one woman and a different women, a different doctor, had 9 CSs (yep, 9, not a typo.) My dr says it's all about how much scar tissue and it's usually not an issue.

My personal limit is 3 just based on the fact that I have been at a couple uterine rupture deliveries as part of the NICU resus team and they were all 4th and 5th babies.
