aching along caesarian line


This may seem like a very strange question but I figure it won't be the first time I've asked something daft on FZ.........!

I had an emergency caesarian nearly 3 years ago. Wound healed nicely, and no problems.

I'm nearly 17 weeks pregnant and as my tummy is growing I'm starting to get an ache sort of behind my caesarian scar. Particularly aches there if I've been running around or climing lots of stairs or driving a lot etc.

I just wondered if any other ladies had experienced this in a pregnancy after a caesarian?? Or why it would ache in that part of my tummy?

Many thanks.


My family is complete...I am grateful every day

Aww hun :( A CS as you know is major surgery, and the amount of pressure your growing uterus is putting that still quite new scar under will be pretty intense. I would say growing pains, but if it gets unbearable its best to get it checked out just to be on the safe side. Hope it eases off soon hun :(

I haven't had a CS but I am getting tons of pains - had to sit down on my way back from walking to the shops earlier in the week. Real pulling/stretchy pains, almost like a stitch type of pain. Its low down so it could be in a similar place to where your CS was. Its reassuring to know that I'm not alone tbh.
