    Default If you've had a c-section before.......

    and you have a numb part on your tummy, do you think that you might be not able to feel a subsequent baby if it kicks on the inside part of that area? (Does that even make sense???)

    After the birth of DS2 my stomach area was REALLY numb from my belly button to the top of my pubic hair. He is now two and it has gotten a little better but is still pretty numb. Now I am pregnant with number 3 and I am wondering whether or not the numb feeling goes all the way to my insides? Stupid thought really (and really irrelevant because I will know I will feel it eventually) but I just can't stop wondering???

    A posterior placenta means is is against your back so it wouldn't affect you feeling movements, in fact you would be more likely to feel movement as baby is in front.

    I've had 2 pregnancies since my c/s and have numb patches and still felt the kicks. It was the outside that is numb.
