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.
