It should be an absolute minimum of one full year after a C-section before you try for another pregnancy. The risks are that your uterus will rupture along the scar line, which is not as strong as natural uterine tissue. You MUST let yourself heal.

In your situation, I'd wait for 18 months as Jodi advises.

You should really wait until at least 18 months to give your body a proper chance to heal.
