  • i noticed that when i had a c-section as well. my doctor told me not to worry about it unless it was painful (even w/o touching) or was close to the incision site and caused "oozing" i would mention it when you go in to get the incision checked (they had me come in after 2 weeks, don't know if you have to or not)

  • The doctor has to push on your belly to get your baby over to the hole to pull the baby out. It's more than likely from his hand
