Not me, but my sister just had her second one. Healing was no different than the first, except she knew what to expect. Good luck!

My sister has had 3 and was fine after each of them.

However, her doctors recommended she not have any more c-sections.  I think she is done having kids so that shouldn’t be a problem.

@PixelMePretty:  My mom had 4 c sections and I believe her recovery time was equal for all of us. She doesn’t have horror stories but she does mention she doesn’t know how the other half lives so to speak. But! We’re all happy and healthy.

My mom had 2. Not sure how her recovery was comparing the 2. My cousin’s wife had 2, and the second was a little more difficult because she didnt let herself heal properly after the first, and had a ton of scar tissue. Shes pregnant with #3 right now. I’m assuming she’ll have another c-section.

I have had 2. I was soooo nervous about the second one because I knew how hard the first was. I even pushed the date out twice. But it was actually much easier. I was moving a lot more before I left the hospital and didn’t need to take the pain meds after the first couple days at home. I healed much faster. I still hope the next one comes natural though!

My Mum had 2 because my brother and I were both breach. She said that both were absolutely fine.

I had two a long time ago – my first was much worse than my second because it was nearly an emergency after 2 days in labor and 3 hours of pushing, forceps etc. It took me a very long time to recover from that.

My second one was planned. I had large babies: my son (1st) was 8lb 12 oz and my daughter was 9lbs 10 oz. My recovery was much quicker with the planned surgery. Just be sure to have some help on hand at home for at least a few weeks. If nothing else, you’ll have one small child needing attention, a newborn and major surgery to recover from regardles of how “easy” it is.

On the physical appearance side, my scars are nearly in the same place and hard to see. Maybe it’s my body, my weight or my age at the time (37 with my last) but I have a little skin overhang above the scar line, which I think is pretty common.

The second one was bit harder on me, but only because my life entails more responsibility this time around. I have a five year old that started kindergarten the same week I had the second one. All in all though, I was fine.

@PixelMePretty:  I had 3. The first two were about the same, the 3rd a little harder. I think that it was a combination of me being a little older, having the operation a 3rd time, a larger baby, and a busier life with 2 other kids to mind. (But I don’t regret it!)

I haven’t but my SIL has had three.  She said each one was easier than the last one regarding healing and recup time.
