Anyone's previous c-section scars hurting during this pregnancy?

I've had two previous and this time being pregnant the scar is just killing! During the u/s it hurt pretty bad when they went over the sides of the scar. Normal??
I'm also STILL numb, like 3 inches on my stomach... Are you?

  • mine only hurt more in the beginning, when the egg was emplanting. i started cramping... i still remember standing in the kitchen thinking someone kicked me in the stomach... but after that... not much. the numbness could just be because the nerves around the scare are all dead or very weakened. they don't have much feeling. my youngest is 2 and i still have numbness around my scare. sorry i am not much help... but make sure you bring it up with your doc next time you go in.

  • yup; that is nerve damage unfortunately... the sides always seem to be the tender area a few years following... It took 4 years before i could feel my lower stomach with my daughter!
