C-section story - not that bad!

After having two vaginal births and the lastest twin birth being a c-section...I'd have to say that it wasn't all that bad. I was prepared for the worst but scared myself for no good reason.

Post op I rested until the following day. I took mild pain killers and watched tv! The following morning I had the staff d/c my morphine drip that I didn't use anyway, remove my foley and I got myself up out of bed. The key is to get out of bed (with help) and be sure you stand straight up. Don't baby your belly! I hunched over for the first few seconds...but then stood straight up. The pain was never in my stomach but rather my incisional area. Ask for an abdominal binder! This little piece of heaven saved me. The pressure that it put on the abdominal area allowed my hands to be free so I could remain functional. While laying in bed, take your binder off though. It will allow trapped gases to move around your abdominal cavity. This movement can be uncomfortable...get up and move! The more you move...the more the gases will move too.

C-sections are major surgery but you're in control of how fast you recover. Biggest advise....GET UP AND MOVE!!!

Good luck!
