C-Section Mamas? - Page 2

post #21 of 33


yeah ive got a solid mass on the right side just above n below the scar, but i was really realllly bruised there at first from being wrenched just that iddy biddy bit too far... so i think it's just me going all lumpy from that, hopefully it'll go down after a while cuz it's making the flopped-over-fold of a belly-sack even more prominent lol

yeah i really hope that all the cs mamas are doing great, seem to be a ton of us! x

Still doing good here too... I have started taking my stupid steri strips off (boy do they itch!) so that is a good thing. I am still feeling it in the evenings because I keep over doing it during the day. It is just SO incredibly frustrating for me to not only not be able to take care of my kids, but to have that burden fall on my parents because DH is deployed. I am so ready to just be BETTER so I can do everything I am used to doing!

Just checking in with the c/s mamas!  I'm almost a month out and feeling much better day to day, still not up to exercising, though!  My scar is nice and flat now, thank God!  (I seriously couldn't remember if it had been raised like that with my first two, it was kind of freaking me out!)  Feeling much better emotionally about the c/s and the reality that any future children will likely be born by c/s.  Hope you're all doing well!

I am almost 4 weeks post c/s and I feel pretty much back to normal thank goodness!!!  Still get little sort twinges sometimes but nothing big.    I hate my stupid skin flap hanging over my scar... it looks SO gross and just... eugh.

I know, I hate that stupid flap!  When I lost a bunch of weight mine got much smaller, but never could get it to go away completely.  greensad.gif

Yeah, even when I am back down to my pre-pregnancy weight it is still there... sooo annoying!!  I wish there was a way to make it go away.

Unfortunately I think the only way to make it disappear completely is a tummy tuck greensad.gif

Haha, I now!  "Hmmm, do I want a icky flab of loose skin whacking me in my junk, or do I want to be split open from hip to hip and sewn back together with a nice visible scar for the rest of my life?"

Hi there - I'm new to the C-section mamas club. I had an unplanned c/s last Saturday, 11/6 due to "failure to progress" after a 36 hour induction ordeal. I'm doing okay - finally had a bowel movement yesterday. Honestly, that was kind of freaking me out.

I'm looking for any resources about c/s recovery. I'm probably over doing it during the day. Mostly stressed dealing with breastfeeding, and my limited physical ability. I can't wait to feel more like myself again.

Anyway, I look forward to staying in contact with all of you.

welcome to the club and congrats on your little one!! :D

 

take it easy and chillax. you'll be healed up and back to normal a lot quicker if you do

 

my top tip:

peppermint tea helps with painful wind and helps get rid of retained fluids

 

happy babymoon xx

Congratulations on your baby, waterlight!  Sorry to hear about the c/s.  The best advice I can give is to listen to the "take it easy!" order for the first few weeks.  It's VERY easy to over do it with after a c/s.
