I've noticed that I have pain localized near or on my c-section scar. Is that common during pregnancy? It's not like horrible pain, but sometimes its a sharp pain. I don't know, should I bring it up to my OB??

Sounds like it could be adhesions that are being stretched and broken apart.

No, it's not a bad thing. Adhesions aren't a good thing to begin with. Think of it like a bandaid. You need to cover up the cut, but in doing so you have to make the bandaid stick to your skin. If it's on your knee and you put it on with your leg straight, as soon as you start moving and bending, it's going to pull on the bandaid and start pulling hairs. The cut itself is fine, but boy it hurts when those hairs are pulled.

So too is an adhesion. As your incision is healing, sometimes a little extra tissue is attached to the scar. As your uterus grows, it starts stretching and pulling around. Those adhesions pull and break apart. It's actually a VERY good thing. You don't want anything extra attached, as it could cause more problems and complications.

Wendy.. that is a great explaination!

You might mention it to your Dr.. the pain.. and ask questions about adhesions.. but I don't think they will do anything differenly for it.

Wendy said it perfect!

I too have had the feeling you described with my DS and this baby (my after c/s kiddo's). OB said it was scare tissue stretching and the natural pulling as the uterus grows. The pain tend to be worse, for me, on the side where my c/s stitches were knotted.

Talk to your OB about it but it is probably nothing to worry about.

Wendy hit the nail on the head with her description.
