    ... I have a long scar (about 5 inches long) running from just under the centre of my rib cage down to my belly button, from stomach surgery I had in 2002. It's quite a neat and tidy scar at the moment...

    I know it is a bit of a vain thought :blush::haha: but i am wondering what my belly will look like after 9 months of pregnancy?

    Does anyone know if my scar will stretch out and grow wider as my bump grows?

    Didnt want to read and run but I wouldnt like to say hun, I guess there is a possibility of it stretching as you grow. Rub stretch mark cream in to the scar every day andhopefully that will help!

    I dunno if this will help really, but I had my appendix removed just before finding out I was preg wiv my daughter and that scar did not stretch, but I had alot of stretch marks coming off it, if that makes sence!!! but now 13 months on they have almost gone... to be replaced with more soon i expect :nope:

    Thank you for your posts - its just one of the many crazy thoughts buzzing around in my head since my bfp around a week and a half ago!

    I guess I will keep moisturizing it as much as possible... I am expecting it to be different than before pregnancy - but hey, I guess I can wear a tankini on the beach if it looks really bad...
