When I found out that I had to have a C section, I was super paranoid. I mean, its MAJOR surgery. Anyone who just passes it off as an “every day” thing doesn’t really take into consideration that they cut open your body, remove organs, take out a baby and put organs back in.
Oh, and for the record, they really do take organs OUT of your body and reattach.
Mucho Respecto to women that do this more than once.
I asked, googled, and looked everywhere to find out about C section scars and recovery. Its different for everyone is the main thing I learned, but I wanted to share mine as it goes along for those with the same paranoia and box full of questions.
This is my C Section cut/scar the day after surgery.
This is 10 days after surgery (today).
Btw, those lines are not stretch marks..I have a belly band on and it leaves me with “clothing” lines when I take it off. And of course the dark line is the Linea Nigra, which I got later in pregnancy this time.
I have also already lost 17 pounds. I’ll update again in a week or two.
Now go hug your mother.
