Has anyone had 3 or more caesarians?

I'm due to have my 4th in February and it will be a planned CS, my last one was planned CS even though I wanted to try for VBAC, they said I couldn't. My first was a failed induction leading to CS, my 2nd was a natural start to labour, then it stopped so they induced and this failed leading to CS, I'm just starting to panic that risks are increasing and I don't know what to expect? Does anyone have any experience of multiple CS? TIA

I'm due my 4th in January. DC1 was an emergency section due to pre-eclampsia and DC2&3 were electives. I had lovely, quite straight forward sections each time and am hoping that this will be the same.

My friend was told by surgeon not to have child 4 as the 4th section would be dangerous. She went ahead anyway surgeon said it was the easiest he'd ever done. Was a while ago though child is now 19 she'd also had 4 in 6 years which might effect it.
