Brief Answer:
She can continue the pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Having conception again nine months after cesarean section does not pose any major health risk for your wife or baby. It is alright to continue the pregnancy and give birth to the baby but during the pregnancy she has to take a good care of her health and have a healthy nutritious diet. She has to stop breast feeding the first baby also.'
The mild pain that she is having can be due to uterine stretching or an intestinal colic. Such minor pain usually subsides with rest or a mild pain killer. Do get proper medicine prescribed from her gynecologist after examination and ultrasound scan.

Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
Regards.

Brief Answer:
Ectopic pregnancy can be ruled out by ultrasound scan.

Detailed Answer:
If there is a pain in the lower abdomen then an ectopic pregnancy needs to be ruled out after an ultrasound scan. Even if the pain is intermittent do consult a gynecologist and get proper scan done.
