With baby number 1, dh did EVERYTHING the first week, even though I was fully capable.... It was his way of avoiding company/the crowds, we also lived w his parents in a three story house, and there was no way I was carrying laundry all that way!
With this baby,(2 1/2 weeks pp) I started doing light housework about 4 days after. i had alot more bleeding this time around, and was weaker then with ds, and am still finding that if I do too much my bleeding bumps up. But I am doing laundry, sweeping, cooking, dusting, cleaning the bathroom(except the bathtub,it still hurts to bend that way)...and the big thing is organizing! DD has gotten so many hand-me-downs/gifts!
Dh has pretty much taken over ds, he's scared to do dd diapers, and I can't lift ds w/o pain so it works out really well
