Re: Incision pain...

Completely normal! My 1st c/s was in '99, my next pg/c/s was in '08- almost 10 years later- and the icision pain was really bad- as you are healing from the c/s, your body can form adhesions all around where the different layers stick together with scar tissue- as your uterus expands and grows with a future pg, these adhesions stretch and can break apart- if you cough or sneeze suddenly without supporting that area (and even if you are sometimes) it tears them some, making them hurt even more- I've done this several times, once it was so painful I was doubled over in tears.

There is a product out there now called SepraFilm that the doc can use during a c/a to prevent the adhesions from attaching to the uterus- it's supposed to help prevent adhesion pain in subsequent pg.
