Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

FOR ALL CESAREAN SECTION MOMMYS..

 How do you feel about your scar honestly??

I was told I was full previa.  My placenta slightly moved with every passing day, so there was a chance I could deliver vaginally, but maybe not. So I spent some time looking at and touching my smooth flawless belly and trying to imagine a scar there. Then I tried to imagine getting cut, (I have never had any sort of surgery before) and what if my infant gets injured????

Then I got nervous as my date approached. I talked to my man and kids about it and they felt nervous as well but I assured them that it was a common procedure and Mommy will be ok, (even though I wasnt really sure myself).  Then I went in to deliver and they gave me the thumbs up for vaginal.  My water broke on Fri, but Katya didnt come out til Tue.  I was in full labor overnight and the next day I started bleeding a LOT. Placenta ripping from the wall, they gotta do a c-section NOW. 

Now everythings flying all over the place, hospital gowns, blue disposal towels, IV's, doctors (I had three, and they were AMAZING.  I couldnt thank them enough), nurses, wheelchair, I'm getting strapped down. I told them as I left the labor room to "Please clean up the blood, I cant have my people seeing all of that."  Found out later that they didnt and my Mom walked in saw the bloody bed, Nurse telling her I went in for an emergency C.  My man, Mom, and three kids. My sweet loving family = worried sick.

I'm lying there, no time for a short prayer, I'm thinking about My man, My mom, the three little loves, my unborn. Now theyre smashing a mask into my face telling me to go to sleep.

Fast forward:  I think I am completely fascinated with my scar.  It is sensitive sometimes, numb at times, itchy at times. But what really fascinates me is the fact that I was CUT OPEN.  I still cant get over it and they reached in and pulled out a most perfect tiny girl.  The scar is bikini line, barely there, when I touch it, it feels like theres a sturdy chord or wire across it. When I push it, my man and I both feel it.  What is that? Scar tissue? I dont know, I feel it but cant see it.  When he pours peroxide on it and rubs over and beneath it it feel SO good. Relaxing. 

I can see myself in my bikini next summer.  Showing it off.  I am proud of it.  It saved my daughters life. Special thanks to Dr. Wiggins and Young and Sharah, you guys ROCK!!!!!!

 Oh Lol, I'm sorry I didnt even notice...yea, Dr's tell me the same thing, that it will continuously fade.  I have dissolving stitches, get less noticeable by the day...Interesting stuff...

Pssst it's spelled mommies. LOL!

Anyway my scar doesn't really bother me. My last C was 5 years ago and my scar has faded quite a but.

Why are you pouring peroxide on it ?

And mine is still numb in most spots 18 months later , it gets sensitive if I wear lacy underwear or tighter pants , it hurts sometimes if I over excerpt myself.

Considering they had less than 10 minutes to get me to an OR , numbed up , hooked up , etc etc , it actually is a small straight scar and is not that noticeable .

I can't see it, I have extra skin covering it now.
:-/
Oh, and I don't know what you're feeling. I feel something along the scar-line too, like under the skin. I guess scar tissue. It's not bothersome, so I don't worry about it.

1 mom liked this

I had a c section with my twins at 29 weeks. 

It is very low, very light, I can wear a low bikini and it still can not be seen. The line is not very long either. He did a wonderful job.

 My Dr. instructed me to. I suppose I can stop now, but I'm loving the nightly belly rubs. Dont wanna start putting lotions or whatnot on it yet, it's still too soon.

Oh and with my c section they did not use stiches, they used glue. It was awesome! This was 5 years ago.

Weird , I was told not to put anything on it but mild soap and water in the shower and pat it dry. Did you have a skin infection or something ? Peroxide is used to clean bacteria out of an open wound without all the burning and stinging of alcohol. It actually slows the healing process down for some wounds.
