hi there. please assist, I have a 10 months daughter and gave birth through c section, just found that I am 2 weeks pregnant now I am so scared of complications, am even thinking of terminating but then it thinking that being pregnant now will help me to get done sooner so that I would have a me time and look after myself. what to expect? what to do? am confused.

I had my baby 14 months after a csection by csection again.

It was totally fine - no complications at all. So there will be an 18 month gap or so - you will be fine

I was advised to wait a year after csection as higher risk of scar rupture but the consultant also said she had collegues who got pregnant again after just 3 months!

Please don't panic! People get pregnant much sooner than 10 months and have completely normal and healthy pregnancies. flowers .

Congratulations on your pregnancy. I am due to give birth in a couple of months and there will be 16.5 months between babies. My last birth was an EMCS but this will be an ELCS, although you should be offered the choice of a VBAC if you prefer.
