Scar from C-Section
I am 35 weeks pregnant and have a daughter of 14 months. She was born by c-section. Since my third month this time round I have suffered lower pain - basically where my scar is. It has gotton to the point that when I move it hurts - even when I turn over in bed. When I cough or sneeze I feel like going through the roof. Is this normal or could it be because my previous scar has not healed properly and could be causing a problem?

It could be a sign of scar dehiscence. Mention it to your gynaecologist, though if has been going on for several months, it is unlikely to be a problem.
