i had a c-section a week ago. and my stomach is beginning to shrink day by day. the only weird thing is it feels heavy at the bottom of my stomach. like a little ball or something is still inside.

  • Is this your first? After my first C section, it felt really heavy down there, and I think it was because of the blood clots and just plain old blood that is exiting your body...your uterus is shrinking, but it's in it's healing process. Bring it up to your OB, but I wouldn't be too concerned unless it's causing you pain.

  • It takes 4-6 weeks for the uterus to go back to its original state.

  • Mine still feels like that and I had one over a year ago and had a surgery to take out the scar tissue from it. IT is still hard.
