Hey mamas. I'm currently on pregnancy #2 at 14 weeks. I was so excited to feel the baby move,..only under my hand! My skin is still numb and the nerves dead from my C/S 3 years ago. I feel so bummed. I wonder if this is happening to all of us C/S mamas. I'm looking forward to going for a VBAC. We're moving to Salem, OR in 18 days from Los Osos, CA. I found a birth center up there which I'm excited to check out, but I can't help but wonder if I'll ever feel the baby from the inside like I did with #1 headscratch.gif

Happy healthy mama to Belladonna (5/10/10) hoping for my VBAC 1/20/14!

35 weeks here, and almost 27 months post cesarean. I still have not regained feeling on all parts of my abdomen. The space between my pubic bone and belly button is numb, and that extends out to the side a few inches. Not a pleasant feeling, huh?


I'm from Salem, hope you and your family end up liking it a lot. It's a nice town.

I'm 28 months post c/s and 26+ weeks pregnant, and i am numb from pubic bone to navel like pp described. In the begining it was harder to distinguish movement but as soon as the baby got a liytle bigger and higher up I can feel quite clearly, much like my first pregnancy. Now that the baby Is stronger I can feel it kick no matter where it is. I was concerned in the begining, but now im pretty sure my uterus and bladder havent lost any sensation. I even feel mild braxton hicks.

I had more "pulling" issues and Sharp pains that would often happen getting out of bed

I had a second csection 9 yrs later and the ob cleared up lots of scar tissue

Feels so much better now

No real help unless you have another csection
