Does anyone else whose had a c-section before experiencing pain as their uterus is stretching? I was telling my nurse about some strange pain I've been having and thats what she said it was. Is it going to be like this the whole time? I sneeze or cough or move weird sometimes and it hurts.

I've had several previous c-sections & I can definitely relate to the pain you are having. The pain isn't constant, but I've noticed it on occassion especially when I move certain ways. For me it has continued throughout my entire pregnancies, but it became less noticeable when my hips started expanding & they hurt. Not to scare you in anyway, but just in case they haven't told you -- if the pain becomes really bothersome & doesn't go away, or is accompanied by any type of bleeding, makes sure you contact your doctor.

They didn't say this, but I did get some reading about VBAC which talked about uterine rupture. My scar is beautiful on the outside, hopefully it is inside as well. I didn't get to have the down time after my surgery to really relax or recover.

Just curious, how do you tell the difference between that and round ligament pain?

I notice the pain right over the previous incision, almost like it's trying to open? It subsides if I rest, but it can be extremely painful at times.

I've had 2 c/s and for me it did die down after a little while. I don't remember it being a problem even once my second pregnancy reached the "moving around and donkey kicking me in the ribs and bladder" phase. I tend to lean forward when I sneeze or cough to reduce any twinges since I only really get them when I'm leaning back. I did almost curl in the fetal position when my toddler put her elbow right where the incision is to climb up on the couch with.

Brittanie, it's a unique pain and generally located right where the incision is.

I guess that makes sense. As if a pregnant woman needed one more pain to worry about! >_<
