I had my daughter March 20, 2013. She is now almost 4 months old and my hubby and I are considering trying for another. Haven't talked with the doctor yet but I was wondering what others have been told about waiting. I've googled and googled and I've run across a million different answers. So I'm just curious what you ladies have done.

You should wait at LEAST 18 months before getting pregnant again. Even w/out a c-section it is 'best' for your body to have about 2 years in between births, but especially when you've also had major abdominal surgery that needs to fully heal.
