    So I went back to work and I work as a CNA, so a lot of lifting, pulling, etc. Since work, I have been having these pains in my csection scar (on the inside) like someone is stabbing me with a knife. Some have put me into tears.... I'm really worried I don't know what it could be? Has anyone else had this feeling or know what it is? I'm worried Im not going to be able to work now because of this and I don't want to hurt the baby....

    I don't get this but I have found that my scar is REALLY itchy at the moment :shrug: I would make an appointment to see your doctor to discuss it. It's probably nothing - possibly "growth" pains as the scar is being stretched again? How long ago did you have your CS? Mine was 15 months ago. Also did you lose all your pregnancy weight from last time?

    I had my c-section in 2007, so it's been a lil while.... but no I didn't lose the weight :( I found out I was insulin resistant after I had my daughter.... I had lost all the weight and went down to my prepregnancy weight, then gained it all back plus some real fast from the insulin resistance... it sucked! but, this pregnancy I've lost 17 pounds, so I guess that helps lol Mine doesn't itch, it's just painful

    That's good.... I was just worrying about my placenta being fused to my scar or something like that

    I'm having alot of stitch/pulling type pains along my section scar and mentioned it to MW last week! She said it's prob just down to stretching but to keep an eye on it! X
    Just try and be very careful if you have to lift etc...
