I am not really sure how i made it so easy with my dd. I think i was young and determined to show i was fine...this time i have plans in place and help lined up for the first few weeks just to make sure i can get around and handle everything. I also have a nurse a block away so pretty sure she will be a ton of help for me and baby. I will also jave my house stocked to last 2 months with only needing a few things my dh can pick up so that will be helpful.

If you have friends and family for support ask for their help. Have them bring you meals come over and babysit while you rest. My fist was a c section and I could barely function. I lost too much weight due to forgetting to eat that with lack of sleep made things difficult.
I just had a vbac Thursday and recovery is going much better!

My first c section was really bad. But my second one was much easier. From experience I would say take your pain meds on time, take it easy but walk around your house when you can-even though it will be painful and ask for help. I promise it does get easier. Get well soon.

This! It was about 2 weeks before I could fully stand up after my oldest was born.

My recovery was ok. Me and dd laid around a bunch lol took a couple of weeks for me to be able to move around with very little help. I'm having my second c section in January and not looking forward to it with an almost 3 year old lol

This. It was a breeze... not even close to the nightmare I had imagined.

Recover physically or emotionally?

My first recovery went very smoothly. Second not so much, quite a bit of pain. There's a belly band thing that helps. Being reclined is good too. Taking Motrin at regular intervals. And lots of water.


Emotionally is much harder. Finding somebody to talk about it with is great. Ican is a wonderful group
