I got pregnant rather quickly. Had about a month where I was fine, then the nausea set in. I was nauseous for about 4 months STRAIGHT 24/7. When that finally subsided, I started with the heartburn. It was 24/7 for the remainder of my pregnancy. To top that off (which isn't that bad) I had pre-eclampsia, 2 kidney infections, I was anemic, and they thought I was diabetic (even though I wasn't I still got to worry for about a week that I might be.) When I finally went into labor, I labored for 24 hours, pushed for an hour (my worst nightmare) and got wheeled into OR for a c-section. I had gone to nursing school so I knew that movement was going to be the best thing for me, but my nurse told me she would come get me to walk, and she never did. I found out about 24 hours later after lying in bed, that it was up to me and my husband to get up and walk. That makes recovery about 50% harder. So once I could get up and walk, I was in pain BAD pain. I've had 2 yeast infections on my incision, and they think I have a nerve caught in the scar. I am still red and blue and pussy. I just wanted to share my experience and see if anyone else had a similar one to mine.
