Have you been referred to a consultant?

Yes, aren't you under consultant care? They could answer any questions you may be worried about.

You both need to discuss with your consultants. These things vary hugely from one woman to the next, one pregnancy to the next and between consultants. I know (not personally) of one woman who has had 6. I have had 3 and the surgeon last time said my insides looked like I'd only had 1 previous rather than 2 and was fine to have another, though many would not be.
