C section

I have had 2 c sections and recovered well from both. Now I am heading for a 3 rd c section and I am now 37 yrs old. Wondering would the recovery be harder this time. Any of you ladies had any experience of this.

I've just had my 3rd and final section and this one has been the hardest I must say but then again I had my second only 13 months ago so it could be to do with that or the fact I had my tubes tied this time I also got an infection so my womb didn't contract straight away and had to have anti biotics for a week I'm doing ok now I'm 2weeks 2 days postpartum now and I'm pretty much back to my self except I'm still bleeding on and off I think it depend on when your last section was and how the operation goes and if there's any complications or not with my 2nd I was up and going only 6 hrs after having it I felt fine and had no problems what so ever this time was a whole different story

I had my last section six years ago, and would also like to get my tubes tied. Pregnancy going good at the minute. 37 now I hope it's not going to be harder. Thanks for your reply.

You should be fine as its been 6 year between pregnancies I don't think age will make any difference in 28 and this one was hard on me not coz of age but two pregnancies in a year takes it toll as does two sections in a year lol
