I'm almost 13 weeks pregnant, and my MIL was at our house this weekend, and I expressed to her that while I'm content in having a RCS, I am nervous about having a rambunctious 2 and a half year old boy at home this time around. I feel like it's going to be difficult not to over exert myself as far as he is concerned with picking him up, etc. She told me that's true of all mothers, and that having a c-section is no different. I was a little bugged by her dismissal of my concern, but would you agree with that? I feel like the fact that having a c-section is major surgery would make picking up a 35 pound little boy a little more difficult (but I could be wrong).
