Mobile: BTDT Advice for the first month
Since this comes up a lot: please seriously reconsider any commitments to events that are to take place within a month of your EDD. You might go late, and you might have a harder recovery. People might not understand, but your first priority is your baby and your recovery.
Women can face long term complications of doing too much too soon, and I personally have taken the advice seriously to GO SLOW the first 2-3 weeks post partum. So that's 2-3 weeks from when the baby is born - build in a cushion to your EDD to take that in account. You don't want to mess with hemorrhaging, prolapse, longer healing time for stitches/staples (whether vaginal or cs), unnecessary fatigue and emotional stress, disruptions in establishing a nursing relationship, etc.
For the immediate pp period, advice I have received has been something along the lines of: 3 days in bed, 3 days on the bed, and 3 days next to the bed. This gives you an idea of what recovery for some women might look like. Yep, sure there are women who bounce back a lot sooner, but you don't know what camp you'll be in. Keep expectations low for that first month both for yourself and what you communicate to other people!
That is all!
