Hi! I saw a posting where someone mentioned her DH had to pass her her baby from the bassinnet in the night after her c-section. Is this what I should prepare DH for? Is this common?

I wouldn't know, I had Cesareans, but we bedshare so my baby is always beside me. Here's a bump!

I've never had a csection, but i've heard that recovery is much longer and more difficult so it makes sense. How come you're having a csection, if you don't mind my asking?

I was able to get up and walk around 3 hours after I gave birth (I had a csection) they kept me in recovery for two hours so I didn't even get to see him til 2 1/2 hours after he was born. I would say its a personal preference.

I have never had a c-section so I don't know.  I tore pretty bad so my dh did bring her to me while we were in the hospital most of the time so I didn't have to deal with the pain.

after a c-section you do not want to move they are painful. My son was 2 months preemie so he was in the NICU tilll he came home. but yes usually you will need help for about 2-7 days after the c-section it is very difficult to move and pick up the child ect. prepare him just in case you have a very difficult time after the c-sectiioin.

No, I did it myself from day 1. Its good to move as much as possible after a c-section. My kid was 10 lbs, 3 ounces too. UI also climbed stairs, and started working out again after 3 weeks )although was careful with the abs... dont push past what you feel u can do, but def get moving as soon as u can, it will speed up your recovery...
