Recovery from a c-section: what to expect

Message length 300 characters recommended

I recovered very quickly from my c-section.

We waited for any sexual activity just in case. I didn't lift anything heavier than my baby, and I didn't scrub at anything in the shower. I just bought some antibacterial foam soap and gave that area a quick rinse. I had bleeding for a good 6 weeks or so and was careful about sneezing, coughing, etc., holding a pillow against myself for the first 2 weeks or so. Also I took a stool softener so that there was no unnecessary pushing.
