  • If its your first and you rest like the dr tells you to it will be minimull. i'm going on my 3rd c-sec. with the first my son was in the hospital 2wks after i left and i couldn't sit still without him so i ended up tearing mine open. with my 2nd i was chasing my son around so i ended up do the same thing. you just have to take it easy and thatis very hard to do.

  • well make sure if u have to get up(after ur c-section) and have to pee or something get up slow and dont stand up stright becuz u will pull ur staples and they will strech your skin. I made the mistake and got up stright. i didnt think i will fell much cuz of the drugs they gave me. Its not as bad as some ppl make it you will b jusy fine! i am having a 2nd c-section.

  • I had a C section with my last baby. The pain wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. It felt about like a deep bruise. It hurt but the pain meds made it bearable, get the prescription filled on the way home from the hospital!! I was more tired after the section than my vaginal births, that was the big difference to me. I had to rest more and wasn't myself for longer. My staple removal was a breeze. Be nice to yourself after the baby and you'll heal great!
