Anyone ever have sharp pains where their c-section scar is?

I am 12 wks preggers with baby #2 and throughout this pregnancy I have had some on and off pains on the right side of my c-section scar. Today it is bad. Is that common because of the growing baby? Does it go away? I have a dr. appointment on Tuesday and I plan on asking her, but I thought I would ask on her first. Oh and it has been 3 years since my c-section.

  • i can imagine with another baby growing in their you are probably stretching all that scar tissue and it would be very painful

  • I have had pains but not really bad, my mom said she still gets pains on hers and that was 21 years ago.

  • Thanks for the answers! I really didn't think it was normal to have pains that much later, that really sucks!!

  • I don't have any pains where my csection scar is. It's only been 15 months, and I'm 20 weeks pregnant with my 5th.
