I had a csection and I felt so horrible afterwards. I felt like less of a mom because I couldn't deliver him the way a woman should and he had to be subject to so many drugs. I had a mini meltdown when I found out they had stapled me back together like something you'd see on Frankenstein. It took a really long time of me looking in the mirror thinking how ugly the scar was and how inadequate a mom I must be.

However, my child is perfect. He's over a year now and he knows over a dozen signs, as well as speaks his mind verbally more often than not. I still find my scar unnattractive, but my DH kisses it and says it's the story of our first baby and how much I love him. My son has picked up on that and will occasionally lift up my shirt trying to find it so he can kiss it.

Recovery wise, I was healed up pretty much 2 weeks afterwards and haven't had any complications. I also know (due to extensive research) that if I want to try VBAC, which I do, I have a high chance of success.

 I have had two c-sections.  My dd was breech and they couldn't get her to turn so I had one. It was  horrible and I almost died. I was allergic to the anesthesia and they gave me three times the amount I was supposed to have. And they put it in the wrong pockets of my spine. I started getting my feeling back mid c-section and couldn't breathe or talk to tell anyone. It was horrible! Well, being as I had so many problems with dd, I was scared to death to have one with ds. It went perfect though and I recovered great. I had a horrible pregnancy but thank the Gods the surgery went great.

It did take me a while to grasp it all mentally though, so I kinda get what you are going through. It's just weird how it feels, I know. I thought I wasn't myself anymore after the first one. Is this your first? Either way, just keep your head up momma, things will get lots better, I promise. :)

Your only a month out, it can take up to 3 months to heal. My last xs was 6 months ago so my scar doesn't hurt anymore but it did.

Oh ha! Yup confused. Perhaps what you're feeling is the feeling coming back. It can take up to 2 years to get feeling back. Some never do.
