How long did it take you to feel "normal" again after your c-section? How many weeks did it take you to fully get back on your feet again?

I gave myself 2 weeks with no responsibility other than caring for the baby, but honestly after the first week I felt really good and could have handled much more than I did.  I didn't do any of the really heavy lifting kind of stuff until after the 6 wk visit because I didn't want to risk any extra complications.
