Pregnant again after a c-section: cramping, tender scar

I had a c-section in Jan of this year, had a miscarriage in May, and think I am pg again.  I know most may think this is a horrible predicament, but I find myself praying that I really am pg again.  I took one test, but it came back negative.  However, I am still at least a week away from my next period.  My concern is that I am having a lot of cramping, and my belly around my c-section scar has become very tender.  This happened during my miscarriage as well...is it normal to have some sensitivity and cramping when pg again after a c-section?

do you have any doctor, you have to ask him about this, being pregnant 2 times in 8 months is very hard to a body, what if you had a c-section? it is very hardfor your body. i had a c-section 5 months ago and still feel the tenderness and cramping from time to another.

I talked to my dr after the miscarriage...he told me to wait at least 3 months.  Its been four.  I didn't really plan on getting pg again so soon, but God has plans of his own, right?  I just wanted to know if anyone else had experienced this kind of tenderness and cramping when conceiving again after a c-section...

Hmm, I had a c-section 11 months ago. I had a m/c in July and currently just got my BFP! I haven't had any sensitivity issues with my scar. Maybe because mine is older?

Have you experienced any cramping?  It doesn't feel like menstrual cramps, more like ligaments...It hurts when I sneeze or cough.  Congratulations on the BFP...I hope to have a positive confirmation soon, too...

I did take a test, and it came back neg...but I'm still a week away from time for my period, so it was kind of early for me to test.  Its just one of those gut feelings...

My son was a 1 1/2 when I got pregnant again and right when we found out my scar was bothering me.  I had cramps SO bad that I cried all the time, but right around 12 weeks it went away and now I'm 35 weeks and havent had any problems since then.

That's exactly what's happening to me!  This is my fifth pregnancy, the prior one ending in miscarriage - and I had this cramping and tenderness with the miscarriage too.  My only c-section was with my daughter, born this past January.  I just wanted to make sure it was fairly normal...
