Multiple c-section mamas

So I had to have a c-section w/my son and now I am wondering when I get pregnant again will I havae really bad streach marks around the scar? W/my son I didn't get any on my stomach except tiny ones around the scar tissue around my belly button peircing....I know this is vain but I really don't want to get huge ones and wondering if anyone who has had a pregnancy after a c-section would let me know if it causes them worse

  • It probably depends on the person, I don't know if you're more likely to have stretchmarks there because of the scar tissue. Personally, I did not have any right around mine. I had some stretchmarks with all 3 of my pregnancies but nothing that stood out about that area. All 3 of mine were c-section babies.

  • I had a ton of stretch this time around I am sure to have them again, I don't think a c-section scar helps or hurts your chances of stretch marks!
