I can't recall----how long before you were able to do any lifting?? Sometimes I still need to carry my little guy up to bed (he's about 32 pounds)......which I'm fine with now--but obviously after the c/s you can't lift for a bit--but I can't recall at all how long until you can...... anyone remember??
Also---if you've had TWO c-sections---- was your second one any easier in the recovery department???
Although I'd love to VBAC, I need to prepare myself for a repeat, just in case.
