C Section scar hurting with 2nd pregnancy?

I am currently pregnant with my second child, and I am 11 weeks, 4 days along. I have noticed recently that where my C Section scar is (from my first son) really hurts! And not on the outside, on the inside. It feels really achy, almost crampy. But not like menstrual cramps, like pulling? It doesn't hurt enough to make me worry about miscarriage or anything wrong with the baby. Its so difficult to explain. Has anyone else dealt with this in their second pregnancy?

Oh, my older son is 3 yrs old, so it isn't a new C Section, if that makes a difference.

  • That is normal, you are stretching all over again. I have been cut 2 times. When you go to the doctor tell him or her it cannot not hurt "Congrats:

  • I think it would be normal cuz your stomic is streaching if it gets worse or even now you can still talk to your doc about it
