    i had a c section with my son 9 months ago and i am currently 21 weeks pregnant and ontop of the painful cramps and pains i am feeling all day unless i am laying down my c section incision is starting to hurt and burn, and im starting to have some spotting

    has anyone else experienced this, is it normal?

    I had a section, but that's nearly 3yrs ago now. I have no pain at all. Maybe you should speak to your miwdie about the pain you are getting as its still pretty soon after your section, 1-2 yrs is normally the advised recovery period. Maybe someone whose had a section more recently might be of more help, sorry. Hope it feels better soon XX

    call your hospital maternity unit now. I'm preg after a section and had some stabbing pains and they said that any spotting with scar pain could indicate a rupture. they say you're supposed to wait for a year after a section before getting preg again as otherwise the scar isn't properly healed so i'm surprised theyre not monitoring you a bit more closely. CALL THE HOSPITAL NOW. x

    whether you can feel it or not is irrelevant. It makes it more likely to rupture as the scar tissue doesn't have time to heal properly. i know accidents happen but it puts baby at terrible risk.

    sorry to worry you but that's exactly what I was told when I went in on Tuesday. i assumed it wasn't planned btw! happy accident and all that. But you should be monitored a bit more closely and I can't believe they haven't given you any advice about this. bloody ridiculous!

    yes i got to the hospital and they told me to try and take it easy as the spotting has stopped, and the pain in my incision scar is the nerves healing still which makes sense, but they said if the pain continues then to come back up and i will be put on bed rest since the pain only rele releaves when i am laying down, pain is still here so chances are i will be taking a trip back up to the hospital if it is still here tomorrow, thanks for all your help ladies
