thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
It is very unfortunate that you had to suffer such grave complications after a relatively safe procedure like D and C.
To answer your question - with two horizontal and one vertical scar, why would you want to take a risk again ?
Chances of scar rupture are high with the next pregnancy, and elective section would have to be scheduled at 36 - 37 weeks.
Also, the C section next time would be fraught with complications due to so many previous surgeries and resultant adhesions.
You have two kids - why not enjoy them?
take care
