When I had my first Cesarean, I was 21. I was in college, and went back to class after 10 days. I don’t remember any difficulty recovering, and the baby weight nearly fell off of me.
My second Cesarean was 6 years ago when I was nearly 32. Totally different story. Every time I thought I was getting better, I’d have a setback. It felt like recovery took forever and it was absolutely horrible.
My 3rd Cesarean was 3 1/2 months ago. While it was much better than my last c-section, it still wasn’t a breeze. I guess I’m not 21 anymore.
I did realize a few things about the recovery process following a c-section that helped me survive the difficult days this time. Those are the things I want to share with you today.(affiliate links included)
