rrcraz7:Isn't 8 weeks the norm? I'm sure you could try to go back earlier than that if things were going smoothly but I think most doc won't clear you until 8.
At least 8 weeks if you have a desk job, 12 if you are on your feet.
You might start to feel better much sooner, but your body still needs to heal, and that takes time. The more inactive you are, the better you will heal.
Yes, I know people who were mowing the lawn a week after a C-section and wear that like a badge of honor, but frankly, it's just stupid.
I was cleared at 6 weeks but went back at 12. I'll do the same this time as well. My c-section is the day after yours, Nov. 6th. We are almost there!
