  • I had baby #5 in oct. 08 my first c-section ha I am still waiting for the feeling to come back in my lower abdomen. It's rather depressing, but I have been walking pretty hopefully this helps. :-)

  • I had an emergency c-section and they ripped a bunch of musels so mine will never be the same. I walk though. Just do what you can and don't beat yourself up.
