My daughter was delivered by c-section and i was wondering if when pregnant with number 2, which i am, do you get sharpe pains now and again across the scar? as im getting them its not really painful just a little uncomfy.

I think it depends on how healed you are. I know my Doctor recommended that I didn't get pregnant until my child was 18 months old. I still get 'mystery' pains where the scars are from my c-sections. Good question to ask your doctor at your next check up. :) I'm sure you'll be fine.

I am like you my first came c-section. My scar hurt some also when I got further along where I was pretty big. It wasn't a ouch bend over in major pain type of hurt, but it like you said was uncomfortable. I had itching like crazy with mine too.

My children are 3 years apart so my scar was well healed by the time I got pregnant again. But before I fell pregnant with #2 I did get some pins & needle type sensations & also a little burning pain too. Unless it's really painful & very constant I wouldn't worry (I already talked to my dr about it & he said it was normal)

im prego with number 3 and yea my scar still bugs me and yea its not a pain its a uncomfortable/weird feeling. I had a cough the other day and when coughing it felt like my scar was going to rip open. it takes a very very long time for a c-section scar to heal. I have a 4 year old and a 2 in half year old. now my scar didnt bug me until i got prego with my 3rd and my belly got bigger then thats when the scar started to bug me every now and then... its normal...
