I m 34weeks pregnant and have pain in my C section scar of my previous pregnancy, vaginal pain , abdominal pain. My weight is reduced by 2kg in the past three weeks. Went to my OB yesterday. She asked for an ultrasound which report has been attached. She gave me a injection of tramazac 100mg and two injections of lung development of fetus of 12mg each. Kindly suggest what to do if the pain didn't subsided.
Dr. Megha Tuli

Usually such pains progress to labour pains. Your doctor has given injections for lung maturity, so there is not much risk now.
