Pjs after Caesarian
I was out of bed the next morning, I was going a bit stir crazy. As soon as the catheter was out, I was up! Take it easy at first though, I had a spinal and it wore off about then, then just had voltaren and panadol. Nothing after I left hospital. I was out on day 4. Everyone manages and reacts differently, just listen to your body. But I do think, if possible, the sooner you're up and about the faster your recovery.
I second what others have said about supportive underwear and pants. I wore comfy pj bottoms with hestia support underwear and a maternity singlet top which is good for bf.
You'll never appreciate a shower more when you have your first post surgery!
Make sure you take plenty of maternity pads... As someone else said, you can fold it in half and put in over your wound. And a light jumper or something, just in case it's very cold in hospital. You probably won't need it. But can't hurt!

Well I found granny undies horrible so i just wore my normal hipsters but put a pad so the soft side was touching the wound and wore it like that for about 6weeks I think.
I had one C/s at 8pm and one at 12:05pm and both times I was in bed until the next morning. Both were somewhat of an emergency so i'm not sure if that makes a difference.
I found that most of my maternity clothes were fine to wear with the exception of jeans or anything that was tight and stiff even with the maternity band. Didn't have to buy any thing specifically for the healing though.
