Is this normal? It never hurt until I got pregnant, and I can feel it pulling sometimes... Is this going to be really uncomfortable during my pregnancy as my uterus grows? Should I be getting massage on the scar tissue? Any thing else I should be doing?

completely normal 3rd time veteran here.

I wouldn't worry too much, unless the pain is extreme or you are concerned you may have adhesions.

Due with number 5 in August. We do all that crunchy stuff.

Not sure. Mine actually isn't hurting at all. I expected to feel it since it was done around 7 months ago, but so far nothing but the round ligament pain in my sides (just a little) and corpus luteum type twinging. Are you absolutely sure it's not round ligament pain kicking in early? Reason I ask is that this will be your second, and apparently, things start happening earlier with the second.

Anyway, whatever it is, I am sure you're fine. I have heard of women getting sore on the section scar but I think it depends on the woman and varies a lot. I will let you know if I start to feel anything at all

I had some pains around my scar when I was preg with the second. I don't think it lasted the entire pregnancy. I haven't noticed any scar pain with this pregnancy so far but the last one was a vbac so I wonder if it just has been so long for me that I won't have any pain.

I wouldn't worry to much either but a post in the vbac forum can't hurt.
