Second pregnancy follwing c-section.

I had a c-section when I had my son. He is now 6 years old and I am 9 weeks pregnant. Has anybody experienced pulling sensations around your c-section scar?

  • Yes, it is so annoying!

  • Mine did. There is probably some scar adhesions inside. It was a little uncomfortable, but not terribly bad.

  • I just wanted to make sure that it is normal because I understand I will experience a pulling feeling due to stretching..but this feels a little different. It is not "painful" but def noticable.

  • Yup. It didn't last the whole time- just another pregnancy pain to deal with. ;-)

  • I had a c-sec with my third baby and had 3 more after her (2 of those were VBAC, one C-sec). The pulling was a bit annoying, but if it's really bad, I'd tell the doctor about it, just in case there's some weakness there.
