C Section Scar Problems....

Hey Everyone -

I had an emergency c section two years ago with my twin girls, I am now pregnant again with #3. I was in the bath this morning and i do a regular check to make sure that everything feels fine and nothing weird is growing (i seem to get alot of skin tag with pregnancy) and i noticed a bump that was painful on my c section scar. So i grabbed a mirror and took a look, there is a hole a little bigger than a pen mark right on the incision. Because i was moving things around to look some blood did come out, and it looks to be a little infected. But it is a hole for sure. So i cleaned it out, and now im waiting to see if i can get in to see my ob quickly.



My question is - has anyone else had this, or heard of it. Is it normal? I am trying to do a natural birth for this baby, and i have a bad feeling this might not be good. I should mention I live in canada, and my ob has already agreed that a vbac for this baby isnt risky.



Help!?!?!?!?!

I am 16 weeks along, and I'm not going to lie i am overweight, which of course sucks because the second i get pregnant i cant stop puking.

I'm just weirded out because i never had stitches, they used staples, but there seems to be something trying to stick out of the hole. And I'm too nervous to go digging around and possibly make the hole bigger. I've also had some pain on that side for the past couple of weeks.I just dont want to turn into one of those people that freaks over every weird thing that pops up.

Wow, for this to happen 2 yrs later sounds a little weird to me. Maybe it never healed properly, or the scar has torn open? Maybe there is scar tissue. I would go to the DR asap. How far along are you?
