Hi!

I gave birth to my baby 3 weeks ago (after 36 hours of labor, had to do an unplanned C-section for "failure to progress"). Anyway, I've got significant stretchmarks on the lower part of my belly (below belly button) and the skin there is so sensitive to the touch - even my clothes or bed sheets touching the skin is uncomfortable. It is a bit painful to the touch too. Is this normal? Any suggestions for what to do, or what might heal this? p.s. the actual incision is healed and totally fine, thanks to my great doctor. :-)

Thanks!

Rachel
