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

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.
