Previous scars through next pregnancy

Anyone willing to share their scars from previous c-sections or tummy tucks and then had a pregnancy afterwards?

I've got hip to hip and trying to get an idea of how it could change with stretch or shape x

With my DS1, I had to have an emergency C-section.
the scar is not too bad at all, barely noticeable.

It itches randomly and I lost some nerves in the area but everything else seems fine. Can barely tell that I actually have a scar.

I am actually pregnant now with my 2nd, only 5+3 weeks.
Not at all nervous on how it will turn out, scar wise.
(3 years in between the two pregnancies, so it definitely had time to heal).

I believe it all depends on how recent the scar is, and if it had enough time to heal in between.

@Applesnow22 Thanks for replying and congratulations!!!

I've had section 13 years ago and the tuck would've been probably 11 years ago and that cut went through the section one. Does that make 2 lots of scar tissue too? 🤔
