I agree with Shawnn that you don't NEED another baby, but there's nothing in the world wrong with WANTING another one. ;)

You would have to talk to your doctor about your specific body and situation, but generally... yes, I personally know people that have had as many as 5 c-sections and are fine... But, of course, it's possible that in some cases it is NOT safe for future pregnancies. Every situation is different.

First, you don't NEED another child, you want one. No one NEEDS children, but they are a desire, and a nice addition to the family.

As far as whether or not it is possible to have another c section is something that you should discuss with your physician, preferably before conceiving again.

The Mayo Clinic says 3 is a safe number: http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedur...

However, I think it's a good idea for anyone planning to get pregnant to always have a pre-pregnancy exam and see what your doctor says about your health. Surprises after you're already pregnant are much harder to address and cope with.
