I'll be a month pp on the 8th of September I want to know when will I start feeling back to normal? I'm so tired of worrying if my cut is going to open and I'm ready to get better sleep I can sleep on my side now but its still not comfortable now long did it take for you moms who have had c sections to go back to normal routine with out feeling any pain or discomfort?

You have just had major abdominal surgery. It will be at LEAST 6 weeks before you finish your recovery period and anywhere up to 8 weeks. Did your doctor not warn you of this? It can then take months before you will be back to "normal", even without a c-section.

Hi Laura,
I'm not going to lie to you, every woman is different. It depends on what kind of shape you were in before and during pregnancy.
My sister had twins. She was in pretty good shape before her c section.
There is no such thing as normal after you have a baby. It's a good thing and a challenging thing.
But as far as a normal routine, well again, there is no normal.
You need to be easy on yourself for at least 2 months. Your doctor should be able to give you a better answer since they know you.

Good luck. You're going to be fine. Just know, listen to your body.

Cheers,
Julia
