Hi,

I've had two previous sections with my two boys, ages 3 & 4. I'm now 32 weeks along with twins and today started feeling pain and pressure right where my previous incisions are. I was wondering if anyone else has had their incision burst when pregnant. I'm getting huge and kind of scared about the possibility of it bursting since I still have 6 weeks to go. I plan on discussing it with my doctor at my appt. Monday but wondering if I should be concerned.

Thanks,

Sharon

I have had 6 c-sections and my incision has never burst. If you are concerned call your doctor. There is no reason to walk around worrying. I will say that if you feel any contractions . . . you should immediately go see your doctor. I've heard that the uterus can bear many things but incisions usually burst when contractions begin.

Thanks for your response, Ann. I feel a lot better today and I think I just overdid it the day before. I plan on mentioning it to my doctor on Monday.
