Well here it is. This is what my scar line looks like after 2 cesareans. I'm presently 4.5 months PP and am all healed up.



Please add yours. I will sticky this if there are multiple photo replies. I really think this will help first time cesarean moms.

Wow! You all look great! I tried taking pix, but you couldn't see mine from the flap and hair. Mine's about 6 inches (shorter than some of yours) but much, much thicker.

Here is mine from 4 months (today!!!) pp. It was taken by my cell, so it's at an angle, but in reality, it's straight. And I'm glad I'm not the only one who had to hold my flap up!

Mine looks like that as well.

I wonder if all who get c-sections get flabs too?

I have a flab and I don't love it, LOL.

I think the majority get the belly flap. The lucky and few get their flat tummies back.

I can't get a good picture of it

There's always a glare on it. I'm gonna try and get DH to take a picture of it tomorrow before it gets dark out and see if that works

You ladies look great!! I tried to get mine, but it kept coming out too blurry. Mine is about as thin as Natalie's, but my tummy isn't nearly as pretty.

Your hairline is barely noticeable Great scar line. It healed nicely.
