Anyone having extra pain down low this time around?

 

Right above my pubic bone and quite far across I'm having some pretty intense pain. It hurts much worse when I walk and practically doubles me over. I've never experienced this pain before. No spotting, bleeding or cramping, so I'm trying not to freak out.

Nope, no pain here. I think you should call the doctor! Do you know if he used a single layer stitch or double layer to sew up your uterus?   Ina May says that your supposed to use double to prevent problems like the placenta growing through the incision.  Hope you get some relief soon!

I think she did a double with both of my c-sections. I know she said she closed all layers on her way out. I also know my placenta is posterior and away from the incision, so that's good too.

 

The pain has ceased. It may have been from carrying DD3 so much this weekend and moving things around the house, both of which I shouldn't have been doing. I'm having crazy back pain, too.

Hi, I've heard that moms who have had previous c-sections can sometimes have adhesions that, upon being pregnant again, can begin to break up, which can be painful.  Glad that you're not in pain any longer!!

If it's the adhesions I hope they all break away before I attempt a VBA2C!

 

I haven't had any more pain at all. I guess maybe I just really overdid things.

If you want to help the adhesions, you could see a Mayan Abdominal Massage practitioner. I know a couple of them, and they have said wonderful things about it specific to adhesions. I actually want to have my daughter treated, because she has so many surgical scars and I want to prevent pain as she grows...
