It takes major work and effort for your body to get back to normal after a c-section. I was actually walking and moving better in the hospital than i did at home though! I made a major backslide when i got home, i couldnt get off my bed or anything (we have a high bed). So we migrated to the living room and i slept on the couch. Make sure you set your house up for when you return. Get things down that you wouldnt be able to reach without help, switch your sheets if you need to, if you dont have much extra help i would try to cook and freeze as much as possible. Stock up on soup!!! i couldnt keep food down for awhile! And when they offer you pain meds to take home, TAKE THEM, you dont nec. need them, but i needed them about 4 times and was sooo thankful i hadnt tried to tough it out!! GL hunni CONGRATS!
