  • probably just nerve damage, but if it persists I would go have it checked out.

  • I had the same thing after my c-section. It was a little after my 6 wk PP check, so probably at around 9 wks PP just like you. A friend of mine also had that sensation and she didn't have a c-section. I was told by my OB that is was the muscles contracting back down. Completely normal. But if you are worried, call your OB just to get piece of mind.
