My daughter Izze was born on March 26th by C-Section. I had low amniotic fluid starting at 31 weeks and was on bed rest till she was born at 40 weeks. Her fluid was still to low when we tried to deliver naturally so we had a c-section. My scar is still really sensitive and itchy....does anyone else have this?

My son was born March 27 via C-section because his heart rate kept dropping and my scar is still really sensitive at times. It's not too itchy although sometimes it does itch but it's a phantom itch. I've read about people's C-section scars being sensitive for quite a while after giving birth.

My daughter Aneisha was born on the 4th March by c-section at 38 weeks and it was my second c-section. It felt really funny to have my scar cut open again, and this time round it took a bit longer to heal, and was very itchy and numb. It feels tingly when I touch it now so I try to avoid bumping it.

My son Kaleb was born March.2nd by c-section. i was dialated to 9 cm for 16 hours and he was faced the wrong way. They thought i would be able to have him naturally but due to his size (9lb 10oz), they say he would have never been able to come out sunny side up. My scar is still very numb, not itchy though. It did open a little bit but other than that ive had no problems.

My daughter Jenna was born on the 25th and i had an emergency C she was in distress for reasons unknow no cord she wasnt stuck or anything. She had to be on oxygen her whole first day/night. It was scary i was completly knocked out and i woke up with no baby near me or anything. My scar is itchy sometimes but its not that sensitive unless its cold out or raining and when its like that it turns purple. above my scar though feels like i have a sunburn when you touch it and thats all i feel i cant actually feel the touch just the burn.( I was Bikini cut very low)

I had my son on March 6th via C-section. After 23 hours of labor my mid-wife and attending physician decided that this would be the best bet. The baby was large, his head was positioned incorrectly and finally I wasn't progressing. I only dilated 4 inches. I was only admitted because my water broke and my contractions were severe and every 1 minute. OUCH! Don't want to thing about that.

That was my son due day. He was tooking out 8 days early. Do worry the pains does go away. It took me a year with our first mainly becasue the muscles have to fuse back together. I've been through 3, if you have to have a other it does get easier.

My son was my 2nd c-section. I tried to do it 'naturally' but it just wasn't happening, got induced and failed to progress. It was much easier to recover from 2nd time round though.

my scar and anywhere within an inch around it is very sensitive too. My daughter was born march 25th by c section. i was dialated to a 10 so we started pushing. :( her heart beat dropped drastically when i pushed. Her imbilical cord was wrapped around her neck twice. w/o an option i was rushed into the operating room. it hurt bad when they were taking out my insides and stuffing them back in. did it hurt u? i thought i wasnt supposed to feel anything. for some reason my neck hurt extremely bad too. they told me it was from pushing, but i only pushed 10 min before getting rushed off to the OR.

I had a c-section on March 2nd in the wee hours of the morning and had my first and only child-a son. Recovery was way more than expected and my scar area is sensitive, itchy and numb-all normal I am told.

I was never told anything about post-op care. I can tell you that to this day, I have a small spot above the incision that itches like mad. It takes MONTHS to fully heal, outside and inside and the itching and sensitivity is just a symptom of that. I am not sure if you had this, but at 4-weeks post-op, whenever I sneezed or coughed I had a hot searing pain down my leg (again just nerves re-attaching.)

I was in labor for 33 hours. I got an epidural at 24 hours and had an emergency c-section at 33 hours. I learned I was shaped like a football and his head was stuck in my pelvic bone. To top that all off, I experienced a severe postpartum hemorrhage in addition to what you mention above (I lost 2000 ml of blood.) They were prepping me for an emergency historectomy (sp sorry) at 50 minutes of trying to massage the uterus and just as they were wheeling me out it started contracting again. I also had postpartum depression with psychosis.

I have a host of issues that have arose as a result of the surgery, and from what I can gather, a host of issues would be pretty normal for everyone to some degree.

My Brody was born c-section too. My waters broke 8 weeks early and i got an infection in the womb. This is my second c-section (first was from baby getting stuck) and my scar is itchy and its really annoying when i try to scratch it cause there is no feeling there but yet there is cause it hurts when i do try to scratch. God i hope this makes sense lol.

I had my baby boy March 27th by csection, 2 wks b4 my scheduled csection. I had some issues with this pregnancy with having a short cervix and being on bedrest. So when I had some spotting and minor contractions at 37 wks, they decided to just do my csection. And he was 8 lbs, 8 oz, so god knows how big he would have been if I had to carry him 2 more wks lol.

hey! my son was born on march 24th i went in for a normal appointment at the hospital and went to the toilet and found i was bleeding they put me in overnight because my plecenta had come away from me and i was leaking fluid they transferd me to a better hospital because my son was only in for 32.4 weeks and had to be delived by c-section when he was born he was in hospital for 4 weeks and did really well and still is.......but my scar hurts all the time, i still wear high granny undies and my partner thinks its funny, when i touch above it its numb but stings still. its because the nerves are trying to heal back together....it sucks and i pray the next baby we have is not c- section it was quite bad and really dont want to go through the weeks and weeks of pain that follows again

Yes, my scar has been itchy from time to time the past few weeks. I've heard that it is a sign that it is healing properly.

In response to Tracey you may never get a proper answer, my waters broke and no one believed as colour was funny went to hosp and they finally realised was a problem by the time they got my son out, there were problems he started seizing after 4 hours and no one told me (he had been taken to NICU) later that day we were told he had complete brain damage, the decision was made to take him off support and he lasted 11 days, unfortunately he died while on medication which then turned out to be too much so police, media etc got involved. This was a complete nightmare tomorrow makes the 2nd anniversary of his death my wee angel Finn. Thankfully his sister Chloe was born March 25th this year though 2 days earlier than the planned c section as her heart rate accelerated with no explanation. I know this was slightly off topic but nice to keep my wee mans memory out there and let people know.

I do have a question for you though. I delivered my baby girl on the 24th of march via emergency c-section. She was only 6 days early. I'm having problems figuring out what went wrong because my ob is an idiot. I had a miscarriage in march of last year and was only 3 months along. I got pregnant in later part of june. I only had 2 ultrasounds during my second pregnancy. one to confirm the pregnancy and one to find out the sex. I really didn't have any problems during my pregnancy except the fact that i had 5 uti's. i started having contractions at 1 am. went into the l&d i was only 2cm and 50% they made me walk around for an hour and than checked me again. At this time no one had called my doctor yet nor was he to be found. I did call to tell him i was going in. The on call doctor finally came in and sent me down for an ultrasound to make sure it was ok for me to deliver. The ultrasound tech said that my fluid level was low but it was nothing to worry about because of how far along i was. i get back to the room. the on call doctor decided to break my water. He tried 4 times and i repeat 4 times to break it. there was no fluid there to break. but my water never broke. which meant that i basically had no fluid at all. than they hook me up to potosin to see if she could handle the contractions. which she couldnt because her heart rate would drop drastically with each contraction. I get wheeled into a surgery room 30 min later to have my c-section. at 10:30 am. keep in mind i still have not heard anything from my actual doctor. i get into the room and there is my actual doctor. the first thing he says to me is that there is a very huge chance that my daughter has brain damage and could potentially have other problems. that was the only thing he ever said to me. they cut me open get her out and take her straight to the warming table. she didnt cry at first but than she finally did they handed her to my husband. at this point i was thinking the worst. I looked and she was beautiful and perfect. i get taken to the observation room and they tell me they took her to the nicu because her blood sugar was low. she ended up staying in the nicu for 5 days for the blood sugar. She is happy and healthy and has no health problems at all. she is already rolling over,laughing,teething and trying to crawl.



Do you know why your fluid level was low or what caused it? My doctor couldn't or wouldn't tell me anything. I am just wondering if it could have been prevented or caught way before the delivery. I was really wanting to have a natural birth and i feel that because of his carelessness i'll never be able too!!

My newest daughter was also born on March 26th by scheduled c-section. She was my 3rd section. I haven't had any problems and actually I had no pain whatsoever. It was great, very unlike my 1st. With my 1st section, my scar was very itchy and it was that way till about 2 years after my 2nd section(3 yrs after 1st section).

[deleted account]

Wow! Lots of people having emergency c-sections in March!! My daughtr Ryann was 7 days late (had been having Early Labor pains for about a week same as with my first) when I started having EXTREMELY painful contractions. Had to have the C-Section so quickly once I got there (only dialated to 2 cm) that they had to knock me out entirely and would not let her dad in to be with me or watch. Scar still very painful sometimes and itches. Also lots of numbness above the scar. This was the 31st of March.

My son was born on march 9th and I also had to have a c-section. I was in labor for 27 hours and dilated to a 9 in a half.. he just wouldn't fit. my scar is healing nicely so im happy about that. but where I live, once you have a c-section you always have to a c-section. and I want to try for a natural birth again next time so I am going have to drive 2 hours when I get pregnant again.

My daughter Fallon was born March 20th via emergency c-section. We tried to deliver naturally after an induction but her heart rate kept dropping everytime I laid on my back to push. Then she lodged herself in my pelvis. I had a lot of itching about 1-2 months afterwards. I am still kind of sensitive in the area but not bad.

My daughter Phoebe was born by emergency c-section on 25th March. She was due to arrive by planned cs on the 27th, due to low lying placenta, but she had other ideas ;o)
My scar still itches sometimes and I also get pains now and again (adhesions?).

wow. reading this made me feel much better about the fact that my incision area is still sensitive, I dojn't have the itch, but sometimes there is a bit of a stabbing pain-Lyla was born on March 7th, c-section was due to her large size (9"10').

I had Adrian by Cesarian March 20th and my scar is numb for the most part. It's because the nerves are trying to heal themselves. Every once in a while I can feel a little bit more and it's pretty sore sometimes. It will go away eventually. I had and ectopic that ruptured about 4 years ago and had basically the same surgery. I just got all the feeling back when I got pregnant with Adrian. Now I have to go thriough it all over again. So... Soreness is common. So is itchiness. When it itches, that means it's healing. Keep vasoline on it (or any other kind of FRAGRANCE FREE lotion) Fragrance means alcohol and alcohol can dry you out even more.

My son, Jonathan, was born March 24 by csection. He was a big boy (10lbs 2oz) and the doc was worried he may get stuck. My belly is still numb from my scar up a few inches. At the line where the feeling starts I get a little itchy (that I can't feel to scratch) and a little pin-prickly sometimes. My scar usually feels fine though. I've heard they can be sore. I love her picture...Jon is just about bald...lol

I had my son Jack on 3rd of March by emergency c section as they thought his heart rate was too low, did a fetal blood test which confirmed this but he was fine.

My scar gets itchy now and then and I rub a little bit of cream on too.

I had a C-section on March 8th. At times my scar does get itchy but I put some Bio oil on it (I'm guessing any lotion would work) and it seems to work for me. My doctor also suggested Vitamin E.

I had an emergency c-section March 30th because her heart rate kept dropping because the cord was wrapped around her neck & I was not getting enough oxygen. My scar is not sensitive or itchy but the area around it is numb. I can't really feel when I tough my stomach. It's so weird and I'm not sure if that will ever go away..

I had my second c-section on March 2 with my daughter Annie. When I was in delivery with my oldest, her heart rate kept dropping so they decided to do an emergency c-section to get her out quickly. I've never really had the itching, but it will be sensitive for a little while. Even a year after my first, their were still times when it got tingly. My oldest accidently bumped me the other day and my scar and I couldn't even feel it.
