this is probably the wrongboard to ask; but i wasn't really certain exactly where else to go. seeing as how this is a vbac board, i think it's safe to assume all you nice folks have had cesareans.
first off; to the best of my knowledge, i am not pregnant. i usually take my birth control pill daily, though i have been known to be last on a dose. (and at the end of last cycle, i skipped most of those little green sugar pills at the end of the pack.) i take a low dose, called chryselle 28. i don't know if that's important, but figuired i should put it out there in case it's relevant.
I had my daughter by cesarian november 23, 2008. that's almost three years ago. most of the time, my incision/scar/csection (whatever you call it) does not bother me.
In the last three days, it's been bugging me. it's not hugely painful, maybe a 2 on the pain scale. kinda dull, achy. occasionally stabbing, but not very often. it's more of an annoyance than anything. It bothers me when i sit. it bothers me when i stand, move, stretch, cough, lay down... pretty much, it doesn't go away. i would ask my doctor about it, but dh thinks that it's just "displaced pain" or something. and my doctor's office is closed today. the receptionist made me feel bad by saying that she could have a doctor on hand or EMERGENCIES call me back... you know what i mean?
anyway; idk if that's normal or if there's something going on? I do have short-lived bouts of nausea, mostly during the evening. and a headache. but that's not all day.
i haven't been doing any more excerside than usual recently. i walk a mile every morning to catch the bus to school, bike 4 miles to work saturday and sunday, bike back home after work. at most i walked a mile to the computer store from my school to drop off our laptop and pick up a loaner. but that's it.
just for the record, i've been kinda hoping to have another l/o... fraternal twin boys, i've already got names picked out, so i'm kinda holding on to delusional hope that i might get pregnant, but i know it's not realistic. or very practical. by the time i get my paycheck every other week, it's spent. between bills and transportation, i'm left with nothing. so i was kind of wondering if any of you had your incision (that's what i call it) bother you when you got pregnant with your second one? (my almost-3-yo is my first. she most certainly won't be my last. i want twin boys, two more boys, and two more girls. then... adopt two. yup... i've got it all planned out...)
so, uhh... any ideas?
