    Default Trouble feeling contractions

    I had a c-sections a little over 2yrs ago with my twins... And I'm still kind of numb down there! I noticed today at the doc that I was having some consistent BH but I couldn't feel those at all. I think I've had some contractions but then again my feeling is so off im not really sure

    BH are usually painless and it's normal to still have some numbness 2yrs post cs, did you speak to your doctor about your concern?

    Everyone (including dr) keeps saying "oh you will know" but that's not always true. Just like some women can feel their BH I can't...

    I didn't feel any of my BH either. I was 5cm dilated before I felt a contraction at all. You'll feel the contractions over your whole belly and sometimes through your back and legs so the numbness of your scar won't prevent you from feeling them.

    With dd2 i knew I was having bh but they were painless. When I went into labour the connections were much the same. Painless but becoming uncomfortable. The pain didn't really start until the business end of having to push her out. Although early, it was a fantastic birth and labour.

    I had back labour and never felt contractions at all. It wasn't until I had the epidural that I could feel my tummy tighten, so knew something was going on!
