@DFoster85 – I heard that the c section recovery pain can be really intense. I was lucky that with both of my kids I had a vaginal delivery and while it was really painful during the delivery phase the recovery was a lot easier. I was back to normal in about two weeks.
My sister had an emergency c section procedure because she developed preeclampsia and she needed about six weeks to fully recover. The doctor told her to walk around a much as she could to avoid gas pain in the stomach and the potential development of blood clots which she told me was a real threat when you have a c section procedure.
