  • Aww July 14-08 was my due date, but I had dd July 08th via c-section. I don't know if it's normal as I am NOT pregnant again. It would seem normal due to some stretching. I would talk to your doctor about it. Maybe you should also start using some cocoa butter lotion on it . . . just to help it stretch more easily. I am 9 months pp and I still feel weird at my incision site. It is half numb, burny and super itchy. I wish the best of luck and I do imagine that it's normal.

  • I had my son by c-section on July 14th. That's cute. I'm not pregnant again so I can't give you any advice on that lol. I can tell you though that when I get cramps from my period I seem to feel them in the area near my scar too which I thought was super weird.

  • Might be adhesions under the scar that don't want to stretch. I have an appendix scar that is long and had adhesions which did not allow the twins to get over to the right side of my belly. It was not fun being

  • My scar has been doing that off and on this whole pregnancy I am 32 weeks, its normal but if it gets really bad you might check with your doctor.
