    Default Sore c-section scar 2nd pregnancy

    I had a ceaser 14 mths ago with dd, she was breech. Im now very early days pregnant - like 5 weeks and my scar has become a bit sore to touch. If its sore now so early , does it get even worse towards full term? Its freaking me out a bit.

    I'm 21 weeks on my second and had a CS 14 months ago. I've only just started to pop out so haven't stretched much yet. I'm semi worried about it too. How long do they say till its healed properly? I think this will be one major thing I'll be bringing up at my hospital appointment tomorrow.

    I had pain in my scar and I had an almost 4yr gap. My scar still aches even when I'm not pregnant. It's not agonizing but I certainly am aware of it. I think it's pretty normal.

    In the info i got given when i had my caeser, it said to give it at least 12mths healing time. There are a few layers of tissue that need to repair and heal properly. I guess it's just like any other major surgery, recovery wise. I know women who concieve after 8mths and they were fine tho.

    I know this was a while ago that you posted, but I wanted to reassure you that some stretching discomfort is pretty normal. For me I noticed a lot of stretching and pressure in the first 12 weeks - and pretty much after that I didn't even notice I had a scar. Not even a twinge during labour. So it was the beginning of the preg, not the end that was the worst.
