I feel like I've gained way too much weight already. I'm trying not to stress, but I am. I'm usually very thin, 5'10" and 125. However, with my last two I became huge! I don't want to do it again. It's so much trouble to lose it!
I'm not really expected to be back, but I don't want to take off the whole semester. I'm afraid it would be all or nothing. Good jobs are hard to come by right now! I just got a much better position about a month and a half before I found out I am preganant!
I didn't have one with my first two, but I plan to get one this time. I have diastasis recti. I did not have a protruding stomach (before getting pregnant), but I lacked core strength and could feel the separation with my fingers. It was about two inches wide. I'm hoping to heal it this time.
I am due with number three, but it's been 7.5 years since my last one! I've forgotten the details of recovery and could use a refresher.
I would like to return to work two days a week one week after my c/s. I'd pump and leave the baby with DH. Does this seem doable? One doctor said that the chances of the incision opening is quite low a week later, but that the pain may be hard to manage. What other concerns could there be?
Thanks for any help!
