I had a rush of energy and I felt great a day afterward. I was up and about trying to do everything I couldn't do before giving birth and boy did my body start to fight back. I started having all kinds of stomach aches and pains and until I started doing "baby yoga" with my son I could barely walk around the block without aching.
Pace yourself, although everyone is different just relax - its hard to fight the urge but sit back and be fawned over and kick your feet up as much as possible - trust me you will not likely be able to get this kind of rest any time too soon.
