View Full Version : scar pain recently
I dont know if I am being a hypochondriac (Probably), but wanted to get some advice. Six weeks to go until my VBA2C and around my scar I have had some tight pains and sharp pains when I move suddenly. Is this normal or does that sound like scar problems? Has anyone else had this??
I called the hospital (Stupid!!!:banghead: ) who said I should come in straight away, I might be rupturing!!! I'm fairly sure I would feel unwell and terrible and in agonising pain if that was the case and baby is moving like a rap dancer!! Just wanted to hear from others just to get some reassurance.
As strong and certain as I feel about having a natural birth this rupture thing is playing in the back of my mind, nagging nagging. I want to be prepared for it but I dont want to feel so obsessed.
Anyways, Thanks for letting me babble.
Happy New Year!!!
Hi skimiddle :wave:
I had scar pain in my second pregnancy in both the first and last trimesters.
It didn't concern me because I had read it was probably the scar stretching (although I did have the whole rupture thing playing in my mind too).
But during my labour, it became a sharp, constant pain coming with each contraction. It really scared me as I thought I could be rupturing :eek: (I think the midwife was a little frightened too!).
But I had my VBAC and all was fine :thumbsup:
Just wanted to let you know that bit incase same happens to you in labour!
But anyway, if it concerns YOU, get it checked out!
Best of luck with your VBA2C :smiliedance:
I had this in the beginning of my pregnancy and it is coming back again and it can be very very painful when twisting, turning, sneezing etc. I am mentioning it at my next appointment but earlier on they said it sounded like ligament pain.
In my mind, if I ever get an uncomfortable twing, to me it feels more like nerve pain. Because nerves were cut during the caesarean, the skin, etc is uncomfortable to te touch for some months afterwards (and normal feeling hasn't returened in my case, even though it's been 2 1/2 years). Nerves coming back to life, or being pressed on, can be an uncomfortable, sharp sort of feeling. If one's uterus was rupturing, I would think there would be at least some bleeding (even if just very minimal). Of course, go with instinct, and if you feel it's necessary, get checked out. But if it's just a stretching sort of feeling, that's normal in all pregnancies.
It might even be adhesions stretching. This is what was up with my scar pain.
with both babies that I got pregant with after the previous one had been a c/sec (ie, when I got preggers with #2 and #4), I got piercing pain on my right side, which at first we thought, for both, was an ectopic pregnancy (was so painful it made me :barf: and pass out). Ultrasound could not find anything.
After I had DS3, I had this persistent pain continuously, straight after the c/sec (I walked hunched over holding my right side for months and months), it then subsided a little but not altogether, then it peaked when I was about 6 weeks pregnant with DS4, and then I've never had it again since giving birth to him.
I had this persistent pain right even during labour, but not on such a huge scale.
I never got this pain with my 1st bubs, and I never got this pain with the #3 during my pregnancy as he was after my 1st vbac.
In retrospect, I know that it was surgical adhesions causing all this trouble......
