When I had Zach I had to have an Episiotomy as his head was a little too big to pass naturally (he gets that from his daddy!). Sometimes the site of the Episiotomy gets a little bit uncomfortable (but not painful), and I have certainly noticed it more these last couple of weeks. I think it's due to the fact that the baby is getting heavier and perhaps it's putting a little pressure on the scar? Has anyone else had this before?

I had an epistomy but never had any trouble with it at all...I think I was incredibly lucky....maybe it depends on how you are sewn up (sorry TMI) but I had a specialist sew me up...Harro said he was down there for ages though I don't think I had that many stitches....maybe you could mention it to your midwife and get it checked but I assume the weight of the baby's head is putting pressure on it

I had a midwife sew me up Charlotte, although I did have a specialist check it afterwards and she said that the stitches were fine.

I had one and when i was 35 weeks pregnant with lacey i said to the nurse i was scared that it was going to rip open because sometimes when i sat down it was still tender etc she said she gave birth 10 years ago and still hers hurt sometimes and that its completley normal, its something to do with the tissue, i cant exactly remember what she said but i do remember her saying that it will most likely be like that for years to come or sometimes forever!

now i have had lacey mine dont hurt much anymore, not when i sit down in a certain position anyway its sometimes tender especially when wearing tampons (i know TMI but we are all girls lol) because they rub but it does seem to be getting better

Thanks for that Sarah! It's nice to hear that I'm not alone. I must admit I am a little bit worried about giving birth again because I thought I might tear at the site of my old scar.

Emma, the first time DH and I DTD after having Zach we had to stop because it was so painful. But it does get easier, I promise.

Sounds uncomfortable. Hope that it doesn't become painful at all, Lou.

I wasn't cut but I did tear (2nd degree) with Emma and that was still tender when I was pregnant with Max, I was petrified of tearing in the same place (and more) with Max, and I did tear in the same place but only 1st degree and didn't need stitches! I think that area will always be tender as it is scar tissue x

I guess I'm just worried about tearing in the same place and the scarring getting worse and causing me pain!
