Hey ladies!! I'm now 36 weeks pregnant still anticipating a VBA2C. Two of my OBs are on board and good to go. The other two are giving me a lot of trouble but I refuse to let them win over my decision.

The problem I am having right now is a sharp pain that comes and goes right at the edge of my incision. About 6 weeks ago or so I ended up in L&D in the middle of the night with it because it was the worst pain I had ever experienced. They kept me for a couple of hours and the OB via phone said it was round ligament pains and sent me home without double checking anything else. It slowly went away and has now returned again. It very well could be RL pain, but I can't help but worry just a little that it's right at the edge of my scar. I don't want to make a huge deal about this though to my OB because I may loose my chance at a vbac if I make them nervous (or increase my risks of something small during labor sending me to the OR). But at the same time if it is something I don't want it to go unnoticed. Baby is doing fine, so it isn't having any other effects.

I guess I just wanted to bounce it off other moms who are in the same situation and get your thoughts on it. I have had 2 VBACs (between my two c-sections), so I know my body is capable. I really dislike being in this situation though, having to fight to hold on to the chance to vbac and still wanting to be proactive about normal risks as well.

Lurking (I used to be part of the board)- I got that alot with my pregnancies. My OB said it was just the tention (sp?) and that the ends of the scars loosening up. I did not get my VBAC, my son passed and I elected a c/s, but I don't imagine it would be a big deal for labor, maybe a little more pain. Good luck and I hope you get your VBAC!

OH! I wanted to add, with my 3rd, after 2 c/s, I started having contractions and it felt like pain shooting through my scar, especially on the ends. You could be contracting but not enough to really notice.

Lurking from July '10 PR

I had that frequently throughout my third trimester. I brought it up with a couple of my OBs (I went to a large group) and they all said that it was probably just scar tissue stretching and the risk of it being anything serious was almost nonexistent. I tried for a VBAC and never went into labor and when they opened me up they found some torn adhesions/scar tissue and he said he was certain that's what I was feeling and while its painful it's not harmful in any way.

Good luck with your VBAC!

You have to remember too that the incision on your skin does not match up exactly to the incision on your uterus.

Sounds like it could be adhesions possibly finally breaking. When my adhesions let go, it was painful!
