Hello, my name is Jaycee. I am 14, and 31 weeks pregnant with twin girls! The father will take a part of their lives and I have support from all of my friends and family. I just have two questions for you moms, Does a C-Section hurt? And if so, how bad? I'm very scared to get one, due to the matter of how bad it will hur but they wat it looks, I have no other option.

Giving birth, whether by C-section or vaginally (with or without epidural), hurts sooner or later. During the C-section, you should be without sensation in your lower body because of the anesthesia, but you may feel a bit shaky and woozy from your IV. Within the first 24 hours after giving birth, the doctors will encourage you to get up and walk around, which can be painful or at least uncomfortable, but it should help you relieve gas pressure which will cause some relief. They should be asking you about your pain, and helping you manage it. But never be afraid to talk to your doctor or nurses about what you're experiencing. Ask a million questions. Don't feel like you're bothering them.

What else to expect:
* No stairs, no heavy lifting (except your babies).
* After 6 weeks, some women may still have pain if they're bumped along the incision, but for the most part the wound is perfectly healed at this point, and you can resume all normal activities.
* You will continue bleeding for a few weeks.
* The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends not placing anything in the vagina for up to 6 weeks to prevent infection (no sex, no tampons, no douche, etc.).
