My husband and I have three children. Our youngest just turned a year old on Nov 13th. We decided to start trying for our 4th baby next month. I'm really scared to get pregnant again because of having had a c-section with our son, I'm not sure what to expect with the next pregnancy. I'm also afraid because of the c-section, I might miscarry. All three of my previous pregnancies were normal and there were no complications. I'm just worried that because the last delivery was c-section and not vaginal my risk of miscarriage will go up. I've done research on risk of miscarriage after c-section and haven't found much on it. Plus I've heard numerous stories of celebrities who have gotten pregnant recently and miscarried. Also a few of my friends have recently gotten pregnant and miscarried as well so it's not calming my nerves, in fact I'm driving myself crazy thinking about having a miscarriage.
So I have two questions. 1. Did any of you moms out there who have gotten pregnant after a c-section have any complications, miscarried or had a fairly normal pregnancy and 2. Am I obsessing over having a miscarriage because I hear about it quite often or do I have reason to worry about miscarriage because of the c-section? I really would like some advice on this so I can put my mind at ease and focus on other things. Thanks!
