    Default Has anyone had a nerve nicked/cut during c-section, then had another bub?

    Hi Ladies,

    One of my nerves was cut during my last c-section and I can no-longer feel sensation immediately above and below the incisions across my stomach. My right side is worse, I had two incisions here and a PP Haeatoma directly underneath.

    This time round I'm either not getting the usual stretching feelings or I can't feel them because of the nerve damage. I've also noticed what used to be discomfort feelings around the ovary regions in my last 2 pregnancies are more intense/painful this time around (not unbearable at all).

    So I'm wondering has anyone else experienced this? Did the usual sensations change for you? Did it hurt worse later on or did you not feel as much as in prior pregnancies?

    Hey Hun, yep numbness around the incision area is normal. I had my c section nearly 8 years ago with DS & I'm still numb. My mum is still numb from having me by c section! I find I get a horrible sharp sting pain on both ends of my incision when I cough hard or sneeze, again apparently normal.

    Thanks Evee16 :-)
    I get the sharp pain to, feels like a thunderbolt shooting diagonally from my right ovary down to the end of my tailbone. It makes me double over in pain on really bad days. Have you noticed any difference in the internal feelings like stretching of the uterus? With both my pregnancies I felt the twinges, pulling etc. This time I haven't felt anything more than a dull ache.

    Yeah I get twinges and pulling and aches but I think it's more noticeable because I know what it's meant to feel like, ykwim?

    I haven't had a c/s but the doubling over in pain thing I did experience in the first & second trimester this time around, and this is after an appendectomy almost 2 years ago.. My ob said its normal for the scar tissue in that area to cause that sort of pain. I haven't felt it since around 20 weeks. This is my 3rd pregnancy and I never had that pain before with my previous 2.
