How are you doing with your recovery? I planned and hoped and tried for a vbac, but it didn't happen, the midwives tried so hard too, I made it to 9 centimeters without any drugs, but then the pain seemed abnormal and after getting an epi and pushing for 2 1/2 hours without the baby moving down at all, I decided on a repeat c-section.
Anyway, this recovery has been so much harder than my first and I pushed for much longer with my first and she was 2 pounds heavier! I remember feeling normal after 3 weeks or so last time. A few days after getting home from the hospital this time, I got a bladder infection that wasn't detected until 8 days after my fever started. I have 2 more days on antibiotics but it's still a little hard for me to tell when I have to pee, I am still taking percocet some days, and I am getting depressed because I am not bouncing back as well. thank goodness I have a very content and predictable baby this time, otherwise I would be miserable.
Anyone else have a harder than expected recovery? I am beating myself up for still asking for help and needing pain drugs, I am being so hard on myself which is making things worse. I feeling like I am wishing the month away just so I can feel better faster, but that means my baby gets older faster too!
