I would like to get as many opinions that i can about the risks of being pregnant with twins after already having 3 C-sections. All 3 children were very healthy my 1st one decided to flip at last minute and i had to have emergency C-section. Doctor said all pregnancies after would have to be C-section. It's been 4 years since my last C-section and i could possibly be pregnant with twins.

The real question is do you have twins or not. Having twins certainly would increase the risk of complications. We know the greater the number of C/S's, the higher the risk of complications.

The biggest risk of having 3 C/S's is where the placenta inserts and that can be determined at a later date.

Find out for sure if you have twins, and then more discussion can occur.
