  • It is different for every couple. For us, it was a little over a month. You will be ready when you are no longer feeling pain or pressure.

  • around a month. they tell you wait 6 weeks, but they never gave me a good reason why 6 weeks is the magic number. i just went with when i felt better (and stopped bleeding lol)

  • For us, it was a few days short of a month after... I wanted to be able to react without my stomach muscles screaming at me. Your body generally knows when you're ready, and if anything feels wrong or hurts you can always stop! My suggestion is to try it side-lying first, there's much less strain on your belly.

  • About 4 months but that was because he was in Iraq. However, if he had of been home, then I would probably of waited the 6 weeks because I had a lot of pain and a hard time healing from my c-section.
