Baby after C-Section

Hi all!

I'm nearly 10 weeks pregnant with my second. I previously had a c-section and have some chunky scar tissue around my scar. By 10 weeks with my first pregnancy I could feel my uterus above my pubic bone but this time I can't. When I wake up in the morning I have what feels like my uterus in between my tummy button and pubic bone, above my c-section scar but not below. It's like it's hanging out up there when I'm asleep! It isn't as high throughout the day but I'm not experiencing it above my pubic bone like last time. Anyone else experience this?!

I'm also 9.5 weeks pregnant after a cs with my first. I can't tell what's womb and what's scar tissue at this point. I think it will become obvious once my womb gets up to my belly button but that won't boot weeks yet. I can feel a kind of hard bubble inside if I lie on my front if that makes sense!?

Thanks for your reply! I'm the same amount pregnant. Just keep my fingers crossed it's all normal, I've been feeling a bit anxious because I've had way less symptoms this time round. It is definitely difficult to navigate round the scar tissue! Hope all goes well for you x

I'm 9 weeks after a cs two years ago, my scar is quite neat and half of it is faded. I can feel nothing above/below/around my belly button or scar and wouldn't expect to for another few weeks at least.
