We had our first baby 6 months ago by EMCS - we were told to wait 2 years before the next one. As I'm in my late 30s, I don't want to wait too long, so I've been weighing up the risks of having a baby sooner than two years. (It's likely I'd ask for a ELCS next time.)
I got pregnant 7 months after an emcs with my first. At no point had anyone warned me against getting pregnant for 2 years nor has any reaction from midwives or hospital staff I've seen since been anything but positive.
I'm late 30s too so didn't want to wait too long. I felt well, healthy and fully recovered when I got pregnant so listened to what I thought my body could cope with and apart from a few more aches and pains in this pregnancy so far, I feel good.
Depends how old you are. Late thirties is risky to be waiting 2 years If you ask me. Also depends why they’ve said to wait 2 years and what the risks of that are. I had my first baby at just turned age 36 and I knew I had low egg reserve and couldn’t mess about. I started ttc again as soon as my period came back when he was 9 months old. I ended up having my second age 37 which was very lucky.
If the 2 year thing is just an “ideal scenario” I wouldn’t hang around if it was me. Egg quality gets worse and worse as you age. Also don’t forget that you have no idea how long it will take to conceive.
I fell pregnant 4 months (surprise pregnancy) after my emcs and had a mc - I'm convinced it was because my body hadn't healed yet. I was told a year minimum (I don't know if this was a personally figure to me because of my procedure personally)
I'm pregnant again now 16 months after mine and hoping it will run smooth!
I had EMCS for DD1 age 37, nobody said anything about waiting a while before conceiving DD2. As it was I waited 2 years as too knackered to think about baby number 2 before then! Pregnant within 2 months, age 39.
