How's your scar doin'?

Mine is itching like no tomorrow.. maybe because I'm growing in that area? Fun.

Absolutely nothing, which has kind of surprised me. However, in my first couple of pregnancies after my first section, it was very itchy and at times painful. I wonder if by now its just totally numb and given up even trying. :p Hope the itchiness goes away for you soon!

Did you have two c-sections or one?

 

I had itching after my first c-section when pregnant with ds2.

 

With my dd I had none at all (VBAC) and with this pregnancy none either.  I am thinking you are probably just growing quick :)

 

Will you be VBAC'ing?  

 

I hope to but I guess it's good to see how this pregnancy goes.  I'd love another birth pool, I keep having dreams at night about a water birth.  Last time I needed to get out and ended up on land giving birth standing up.  I just didn't find the pool deep enough.

I had a vaginal birth, then a c/s, and here I am :)  I'm hoping to VBAC, yes :)

Mine doesn't seem to be doing anything yet.  I'm kinda hopeful it will stay that way, but I've heard of having pain or itching as you grow. :(

Nothing...it's just there :)

Nothing doing here, either.

Mine stretches and feels not itchy but sore every one in a while. Especially when growing in pregnancy. I am also having pupic symphisis main already so it kinda couples with that. But it's nothing to worry about. The skin is just stretching. Maybe try lotion?

Mine itched for about 2 years after my c/s.  I haven't felt it at all since I've been pg, but it was 12 years ago. . .
