Incision issues after nearly 3 months

Intro-I had both a vaginal and a c-section deliver on 10-12-08 and 10-13-08 (twins born just before and just after midnight). My incision hasn't really caused me any problems, but at my 6 week check up, it was still kind of "open." The doc said it was superficial, but it was kind of sore. Well, here I am 2 and a half months later, and there is still a little spot in the middle of the incision that isn't completely closed. Do I need to call the doc and go back, or just wait it out? The doc didn't seem too concerned and didn't recommend any follow up, but I assume she thought it would close on its own. That was 5 weeks ago. Suggestions?

First of all, cutest kids ever.


My incision stayed open on one little side for the longest time.


The doctor didn't seem too worried.


I can't remember the exact time frame though. I would probably call my doc. to make sure it was okay and normal.


Better safe than sorry.

Awww thanks for the compliment on the boys! I guess I better call just to be sure. I was curious if this had happened to others too, so thanks for the feedback!

Congrats on your twins - what a birth story you have with two different methods of birth and 2 birthdates. I
