Is any other mothers feeling the same way ? My first was unplanned but me and my husband planned for our second and got pregnant right away. My first is 8months old. Very nervous . Haven't bond with my belly much . Feel guilty

Hi Helena. I had a C-section for my first child and took in when she was 10months. I had another C-section about 4 months ago, for my second child. So I now have two babies, I hasn't been easy, buy I know they will grow some day. You observe yourself closely and let your Dr know when you don't feel right. You will be fine. Hugs

I have heard of women getting pregnant again this fast (or sooner) after a c-section and been OK, so hopefully that is the case w/ you as well. Just take it easy and be closely monitored. As for having two children close in age. I won't lie... the first year or two is hell (I have twins), but things do get easier and you can do this. ♥

Thanks for your concern, I'm still very early so I found out how far along I am the 19th .

I'd be scared too. Doctors will tell you to wait at least 18 months between a c-section and trying to get pregnant again because the risks to your body and the new baby are very legitimate. I hope you are receiving very close monitoring from the doctor.

What are you scared about?
You have done it once so you know what to expect.
