I had my c-section almost 4 weeks ago and I am still swollen, sore and often uncomfortable.

First, congrats on your little girl!

I was not expecting a cesarean either. It was a gradual recovery and I didn't really feel myself until probably 8 weeks or so. Is it getting better at all?

It's difficult to recover from a C section if you've gone through a full labor. It took me awhile to completely feel back to normal -- are you seeing gradual improvement even though you're not 100%?

Thanks! I know what you mean We had to take D.L. back to the hospital three times because there were problems with the hearing test. I just wanted to scream, "do you have any idea what a huge deal it is for me to get out of the house right now?! ARGH!" I wanted and needed to be out, but I hated it at the same time. It is good that you're seeing improvement though! I remember celebrating every little victory. Wooo! I can bend over! Wooo! I can go the bathroom by myself! lol It made it seem a bit more exciting. Hopefully it will be over soon for you too.
