I opted to have a C-section on 8/1 because I could not bear the thought of laboring and pushing out my stillborn daughter at 6 months (24 wks and 3 days) pregnant vaginally. I am a Labor & Delivery nurse, but I am looking for people's personal experiences. My question is: how long did you wait to become pregnant after having a C-section? I know my MD says wait at least 6 months and I will, but I am curious to hear anyone's story. I would also love to hear about those of you who weren't necessarily trying to conceive but did. Keep in mind that my uterine incision is not as large as it would be with a full term baby. My daughter weighed 1 lb and 7 oz. And I had the pfannenstiel abdominal incision (bikini line incision) and the lower uterine transverse incision since this was not an "emergency" C-section. Did any of you VBAC (vaginal birth after Cesarean section)? Like I said I am just curious to hear your stories because my husband and I are so ready to get pregnant again.
