    Hey Girls,
    Just wondered if any of you had any bad experiences with any abdominal scars you already had before you were pregnant? Totally random i know, but i've got a appendix scar down there, and a reeally large one from a kidney transplant - and they feel like they are gonna split open :shrug:

    Dunno how else to explain it really lol. Maybe i'm just being a drama queen, but with my ever-growing bump, i get these searing pains across my scars and they are getting worse the bigger i get!

    Are they just stretching? They realllllllly hurt!!

    are you using any oils to moisturise? this could reeeally help while your skin is stretching? x

    Got a little bit of scar tissue right across top of bellybutton where a piercing got yanked out.. It actually did tear a bit and bled for a while.. I dont think yours will tho, mines a bit dodgy like that. Try creams and moisturisess x

    I had my appendix removed at 20 weeks preg and no probs with the scar - if it can heal and stretch at the same time I'm sure that you will be fine. Like the girls said, plenty of moisturiser will help the itching. Good luck.
