anvloveskme:I was told not to lift anything over 10 lbs due to my c section scar healing/recovery.
Is it just to prevent the scar from opening? Is there any other medical reason? I had a c/s too. I've heard that supposedly if you lift heavy things your uterus will fall--anyone hear that before?
My understanding was that lifting anything too heavy will strain your healing muscles. I did some lifting I should not have done after DS was born, and I paid the price. Getting up and down too much also hurt me. I would have days where I couldn't even walk because lifting uses more muscles than you realize I guess. I would become very sore from lifting too much, or moving too much.
Get rest. It's VERY important for recovering. Take all the help you can get.
