    The layers of muscle are trying to join back together, so anything that puts that under pressure well cause you pain, and unfortunately may delay healing.
    Hard as it is, try to take it easy. I'm having a 2nd CS within July with a 3yo to look after, so I'm going to be in the same difficult boat

    Some women are back into jog training at 8 weeks - me? I could just starts a VERY gentle yoga class with heaps of modifications. Pains were always sharp twinges, shooting out from the general scar area, and if I'd done too much that day then aching/heaviness.

    I think you need to listen to your body and try (lol, I know, funny idea with a toddler) to take it easy when you need to. We all recover at different rates.
    Thank you 🥰

    I can’t even think about going for a walk at 8 weeks pp the way I feel lol
    I love yoga, I might see how I feel coming into the next few weeks and I might start some gentle flows

    Cheers

    Your still only 5 weeks pp so you need to remember that plus chasing an active toddler around will add more time to the recovery

    Go very gentle, remember you will have lots of relaxin in your system still, moreso if breastfeeding, which makes it easy to stretch too far. I couldn't do anything on my stomach, nothing that needed strong abs and was very low in energy, chest openers were great though as you're always so hunched over in the early days.

    That’s so true. I can feel it in my abdominal muscles too

    We make it happen though

    Evening all!

    So you wouldn’t believe what happened.

    Yesterday I was walking downstairs and slipped. I had pain on my c scar not immensely but enough to make me not want to walk.

    This morning I woke up with the c scar being all red and inflamed and very tender to touch
    I think it might be muscle strain on top of having an infection
    I just came off antibiotics for the same issue last week.

    Has anyone experienced this or had multiple infections after a c sec ? I am starting to get worried that it might be something else causing my pain
