Pain in C-section scar area

I'm nearly 19 weeks and the last few days have been having pain just above my c-section scar when I walk or do certain actions. My emcs was nearly 2.5 years ago. Is this normal?

My scar aches, I had a section 18 months ago and am currently 30 weeks pregnant.

I asked my midwife and she said it was normal to have some discomfort as scar tissue doesn't stretch like normal skin. She said that if it was just a general ache not to worry, but if it felt hot or I had any burning or stinging type pain I should contact maternity triage immediately.

I have found that wearing maternity spanx have helped to support my belly and ease the ache a bit.

Thank you, it's less the scar itself and more inside just above it. It's weird!

Mine itched during pregnancy and after a second hurts before a period
