2 previous c-sections and pregnant again. All 11 months apart

I currently have 2 daughters 11 months apart, one is 16 months and the other is almost 5 months, I'm yet again (TOTALLY UNEXPECTED) 15 weeks pregant. So the youngest and this one would be 11 months apart also. I had both by c-section due to first ones positioning and second one being so close to first one. I was wondering if anyone has gone through this and how safe it would be for both baby and me with such close c-sections before?

I too just found out that I am five weeks pregnant and I have had two prior c sections. My daughter was just born three months ago. I am really nervous about carrying another baby and having another c section so soon. I had blood pressure issues with both of my others. Did you ever get some quality answers regarding having them so close? I am also feeling so guilty that I will be taking away from my baby now and will put new baby at risk for health issues. I'm also s nervous to tell my job again!

As you haven't had time to properly heal, a third c-section is pretty much your only option. If you don't want to be pregnant so close together a 4th time, try birth control.
