I felt really good the night after my c section. The only time that I experienced pain that was related to having a c/s was when I first had to get up (I was also induced prior to the c/s) and anytime that they pushed on my stomach.


I am now 4 weeks post c/s and feeling really good. You just really have to take it easy,

I am currently 9 days post my 3rd C section. The first week is the hardest - there is difficulty in walking, bending, stair climbing, etc. However, after that first week the discomfort really starts to go away and right now although I'm not 100%, I'm not taking any medication and I'm just fine. I am very tired, but that's more from being up in the night with a 19 month old and a newborn than from the surgery...


Good luck! You'll find that the first few days while you're in the hospital are the most difficult and it gets better every day! Congrats on your new little one to be!

The first week after my c-section wasn't bad at all.
