Hello, all...so happy to have found this site!
I just had my second c-section four months ago. My first was an emergency in September 2007, and I was warned ot to VBAC (a whole other story) so here I am.
While I was being stitched up by the Doctor after my emergency section he said condescendingly, "Now don't worry, dear, only your husband will see the scar..." Here I am thinking, yeah exactly..HE WILL SEE IT...
After I realized, it wasn't the scar that bothered me but the FRIGHTENING FLAP of skin that fell over it (ugh!). After my second it got worse. It reminds me of old-man tummy, and has become a serious source of embarrassment. I have been told to a) get plastic surgery or b) get over it and "love" my PP body. Can't afford a and can't bring myself to feel b.
Does anyone else feel this way? Do others insist on the lights off or strategically place the sheet around their stomachs? This is affecting my intimacy with my husband...I just wanted to see if this affects anyone else and to what degree...
