 How do you feel about your scar honestly??

I was told I was full previa.  My placenta slightly moved with every passing day, so there was a chance I could deliver vaginally, but maybe not. So I spent some time looking at and touching my smooth flawless belly and trying to imagine a scar there. Then I tried to imagine getting cut, (I have never had any sort of surgery before) and what if my infant gets injured????

Then I got nervous as my date approached. I talked to my man and kids about it and they felt nervous as well but I assured them that it was a common procedure and Mommy will be ok, (even though I wasnt really sure myself).  Then I went in to deliver and they gave me the thumbs up for vaginal.  My water broke on Fri, but Katya didnt come out til Tue.  I was in full labor overnight and the next day I started bleeding a LOT. Placenta ripping from the wall, they gotta do a c-section NOW. 

Now everythings flying all over the place, hospital gowns, blue disposal towels, IV's, doctors (I had three, and they were AMAZING.  I couldnt thank them enough), nurses, wheelchair, I'm getting strapped down. I told them as I left the labor room to "Please clean up the blood, I cant have my people seeing all of that."  Found out later that they didnt and my Mom walked in saw the bloody bed, Nurse telling her I went in for an emergency C.  My man, Mom, and three kids. My sweet loving family = worried sick.

I'm lying there, no time for a short prayer, I'm thinking about My man, My mom, the three little loves, my unborn. Now theyre smashing a mask into my face telling me to go to sleep.

Fast forward:  I think I am completely fascinated with my scar.  It is sensitive sometimes, numb at times, itchy at times. But what really fascinates me is the fact that I was CUT OPEN.  I still cant get over it and they reached in and pulled out a most perfect tiny girl.  The scar is bikini line, barely there, when I touch it, it feels like theres a sturdy chord or wire across it. When I push it, my man and I both feel it.  What is that? Scar tissue? I dont know, I feel it but cant see it.  When he pours peroxide on it and rubs over and beneath it it feel SO good. Relaxing. 

I can see myself in my bikini next summer.  Showing it off.  I am proud of it.  It saved my daughters life. Special thanks to Dr. Wiggins and Young and Sharah, you guys ROCK!!!!!!

    I don't really feel anything toward it.  It's there but I don'y really pay any attention to it.

    I can't see mine very well.  It's a bikini one too.  Its pretty light as I have light skin. 

    After my first ds was born, my chiropractor told me to massage that area while taking a shower.  That would take care of the scar tissue underneath.  At first it hurt but not long after, the scar tissue was gone. 

    After my twins were born, I didn't worry about scar tissue.  Never felt any.  I do have a few bits of skin that are still a bit numb but all in all, I don't even know its there.

    I am not proud, or happy that I have to have c/sections, but I wouldn't be here or have my 3 gorgeous boys!  Again, I don't want another c/section but then I wouldn't be able to have my little girl this next February!!

    Yes your feeling scar tissue. I don't have feeling around mine and that's fine. But its a thin little white line and compared to the other scars(on both sides of my chest from chest tubes) I have its actually quite nice.

    My scar I am completely okay with.  Unfortunately the "shelf" I have from 3 c-sections and being overweight I do not like.  But my scar I am proud of. :)

    I hate my scar. I had twins and my doctor said that they were both facing down and I could deliver both vaginally. Well when I pushed out baby A (Eli) his brother quit breathing and his heart stopped. She had to do an emergency c-section. He was high up so she had to cut me from a little about the belly button down. Its a gross scar in my opinion and I will probably never wear a bikini but I do have a bangin' 1950's style bathing suit that is too cute. And just so everyone knows my son Legend was fine. He was on oxygen for less than an hour. I am lucky to have had two babies that were healthy and though I am self conscious about my scar I would do it all over again.
