My third section is scheduled for May 30th....so obviously I've been through this two other times...but my incision in the last couple of days has started itching again like it did when it healed...except just in one spot. Don't remember this last pregnancy, and I am 12 months post c/s this Friday. Normal? Doesn't hurt, just itches.

Thanks,

Jen

Perfectly normal! I had that with my second pregnancy, and I think it was due to hormones and my growing, stretching belly. I wouldn't worry, and try to use lots of lotion. You can also buy butter balm at The Body Shop - that really helped me last time.

Hugs!

I had a lot of itching during my pregnancy post c/s too, although mine started earlier ;) I also have some pulling pain and discomfort at times too. Both itching and pulling sensation are perfectly normal :)
