Question...

I am 19w4d with baby #2. I'm having some cramping and it's pretty uncomfortable. It feels like period cramps, but I can't tell if the pain if from my csection scar tenderness or if it's cramps...

It mainly happens if I sit upright. Any advice is great, I'm not opposed to calling my ob, I just dont really want to make a mountain of a molehill.

My guess would be if it only happens when you sit up, I would say that it's your scar stretching. But if it gets worse, continues to be bothersome, or just "doesn't feel right" call your ob.

Thanks, that was my first thought too. I just wasn't sure, and Jackson is very active right in that area, so I am guessing it's the scar.

It does! This time its hard to tell if an ache/pain is something to be concerned about or if it's from
That pesky scar.

Our ob docs are accustomed to taking all kinds of calls at all kinds of hours.If it worries you, you should call.We women tend to know when something just doesn't feel right and  If your doc makes you feel like you're making a mountain out of a molehill... find a new doc.  lol

Lol no I'm not really like, worried, I just wasn't sure because I didnt have that scar last time I was preg. I figured it was just the stretching, but wanted to know if anyone else had experienced something similar. I actually just switched drs because I never could get ahold of the old dr.

That's happened with me several times... I think its from the c-section scar.
