Hello all,

I had an unplanned c-section in February this year and have a question for you who have BTDT. The incision area still itches, whhich doesn't concern me a great deal, but my abdomen is still sore. Wheneveer DH gives me a big hug and holds me tight, it feels as if my stomach is one big bruise. Will this ever go away and if so, how long does it take? I also still look like I'm 5 months pg - I just can't lose the weight this time. Any help on these questions would be greatly appreciated.

TIA - Alisa

alisa,

i just had my 2nd c/s on june `19th. your tummy will be sore for a period of 3 to 6 months in my opinion. I am a firm believer that everyone will heal differantly. For instance, with this c/s I feel great. The only time I am "sore" is when I bend over ( since I too have the pouch). If you are at all concerned I would call your doctor and have him/her look at the incision to make sure there is no infection. Make sure you arent wearing tight clothes and undies....I still sometimes wear my husbands stuff even though its three times the size just so nothing rubs up against my site.

Best wishes to you--- REST!
