Hello everyone! It’s me again.
I’m still pregnant (took a test this morning for reassurance), and have been spotting or bleeding lightly pretty much constantly since I got my BFP nearly 3 weeks ago. My c-section scar is now sore as well, and that has made me wonder: might the bleeding be coming from that?! Could the internal scar be slowly tearing? I really hope not. :/ Has anyone had or heard of such complications after a c-section? FWIW, it’s been two years since my daughter was born.
Also, has anyone else had experience with a tender c-section scar in subsequent pregnancies? Mine feels constantly bruised at the moment.

I got pregnant about 10 months post c-section and then again at 15 months (first pregnancy ended up in a MMC at 12 weeks). My scar was definitely kind of sore and stabby feeling at times especially during the first trimester. I’m 37 weeks now and it hasn’t bothered me for months. I don’t know anything about the possibility of bleeding coming from that, my best guess is that bleeding near the time of your BFP would not be from it because your uterus is pretty much unchanged and I’m not quite sure how else an implanted egg would be affecting it. My general rule is always to ask the doctor rather than sit there worrying. I bet they can put your mind at ease. FWIW, with my first pregnancy post c-section I had a few episodes of bleeding while my scar was uncomfortable and the two were not related.
