Three sections, first emergency, 2nd and third elective.
The overhang is very small and has remained about the same with all. They cut out the old scar when they do a new c-section.
I am not overweight and the overhang is barely noticeable. In fact I wouldn't call it an overhang at all, there is nothing "hanging over." It just looks from the side as if the curve of my tummy goes "in" a little too much at the point where the scar is, it sort of interrupts the line of the curve if you see what I mean, but that is all.
I would not be at all self-conscious about if I had to be naked in front of strangers. It has improved due to doing stomach exercises (30 day shred).
One EMCS, followed 2 years later by an elective. Overhang looks worse this time, it's awful but I'm still 6 months PP (it improved at around 18 months after my first), I'm 2 stone overweight and I have a 14 finger diastasis. I'm doing the tupler technique, C25K and John Briffa diet so hope to see improvements in the next few months.
I had an E.M.C.S and I will opt to have E.L.C.S when there is hopefully a next time, and my over hang looks awful but so what. I had very dangerously high blood pressure so they had to get her out right away. and if over hangs are the price I am paying for becoming a mum then it isa price definatley worth paying. I remember the midwife coming around the next morning talking about the importance of doing stomache exercises and I was like oh yeah o.k, but I didn't listen. T.b.h i I didn't care I was too much in love with my gorgeous little miracle to worry about having a flat tummy. xx
