I posted on another board but no such luck...Hi, everyone! I'm coming out of lurker status to pick your lovely brains.
I'm 35 weeks and coming up on my third csection and for the past week or so I've been having these aching sharp pains in a few spots along my csection scar. Not the superficial scar but the internal one. I am TERRIFIED of uterine rupture. I've talked to my dr a couple times and she seems unconcerned. She ordered a scan yesterday to check out my scar and the tech couldn't really see it because my little chick is fully engaged in my pelvis. She did say that there wasn't any evidence of fluid build up around the scar that she could see but my fear is that this pain is a warning that a UR is coming. I do have a chest cold that has me hacking a lot so I'm hoping that's just aggravating my scar and the pressure from the baby as well. Does anyone have any insight or similar experience? I'm afraid to push for an earlier csection because I don't want to take her out underdeveloped because of paranoia and have her in the NICU but I also don't want to excuse away something as big as a potential UR.
