I had my third C-section May 4th 2007. I was told that my uterus was thin, so thin they could see my daughters hair thought it, and was asked what I would be using for birth control? I was told at first by the OB that she stitched my uterus back together in a weaved fashion in case I became pregnant again. She said this after I asked if I could have more children. I later asked, if she was saying that I should not have more children? She said she would not recommend it! This hurt my husband and I greatly! So at my 6 week postpartum visit, I asked one last time before my husband considers a Vasectomy, if I can't have another baby? She replied with the fact that in her many years of being an OB, I was the first person she told that they should not have another baby. She said I was risking another babies life as well as my own, and that I could possibly die, leaving my three children without a mother. I asked if ultrasound later, after I healed from this C-section, would tell more about whether I could carry another child? She said no. I asked, if I wait a few years, would that better my chances? She said no.
So what I want to know is, if there is a chance that I could try to carry one last time? Or has anyone ever carried another baby after being told the same. I would then get my tubes tied after having the baby. I have nightmares about not being able to have a baby. I cry about it all the time, and it has effected my sex life, and my happiness. It hurts my husband as well, he is always talking about, how some day we could have another child. We just feel helpless!
Thank you for your opinion, this was a very helpful link, it gives me some hope. I think I will look for a second opinion, I just did not know if I should go to a specialest or just another OB/GYN. But I'm going to look into it.
