    Hi ladies,

    Im 22 weeks and Ive been having pain in my lower abdomen for a few weeks and put this down to "stretching" in that area. However yesterday it dawned on me that this pain is actually all around my scar - not my external one, but it feels like the one on my uterus.

    Do you think I should be concerned about this? Its been pretty painful for a few weeks now and I hope it doesnt stay that way for the whole pregnancy - do you think its just scar tissue stretching or do you think something could be wrong?

    I experienced pain around what I thought was my c-section scar. I saw my GP and he assured me that it wasn't and in fact the scar on my uterus is now in a completely different place to the scar on the outside. He told me the chances of uterine rupture were remote and the pain I was experiencing was liagment pain and stretching.
