  • My two c-sections were 7 years apart and I still felt a little pain in my scar as I got bigger, but what you are describing does not sound normal. You might want to talk to a doctor about it.

  • Not that early on in my second pregnancy, no. Go, get checked out for sure. Have them do an ultrasound too. Take Care and Good Luck!

  • I'm 13 weeks pregnant now and had my first c-section in July of 08. A few weeks ago i started noticing a stinging/burning sensation at the ends of my incision. It comes and goes and though it pretty painful at times it usually isn't there or is just a little annoying...

  • I'm almost 37 weeks with my secons and had my first c section in Oct of 04 and for up to two years after my scar would itch and sometimes feel numb and my dr said that was normal but I didn't have any issues with my scar this pregnancy. I would highly suggest talking to your dr. Are you sure its your scar and not ligaments pulling cause that can be painful and I started feeling those at about 10 weeks.

  • I'm preg with #4 and had c-sections each time. My dr said some soreness is to be expected, but if it really hurts or is bothersome get it checked out.
