I have had 5 c-sections and they have gone over the same scars each time. I know some women, though, who have been cut in multiple places. One woman has 5 separate scars on her belly! I was just wondering if any of you with repeat Cs have multiple scars on the uterus or the skin.

I have 2 separate scars on the outside, about 1/4 inch apart.

That's interesting. My 3 C sections have been done by different doctors, but the practice at our clinic is to "stay on the dotted lines." Basically they all use the same location both inside and outside.

Yeah, that's what my experience has been so it surprised me that it's not always the case. I can't even imagine what the one lady with 5 separate scars looks like (picturing Frankenstein. LOL) Mine is vertical on the outside and low transverse on the uterus. Hers are both vertical and transverse on the outside.
