I thought I was the only one with the nausea after a bowel moment. But I did ask my doctor about that, there is even a word for it, escapes me now. It is a strange phenomenon they can't explain. But that eventually ceased for me.

First, I have had three c-secs with all three of my babies. If this is your first child, it will take a while for your body to get back to normal anyway. It was nearly a year before my bladder returned to normal after my first two and with the third (March 2013) I still do not have the control I did prior. Hormones, stress, and anxiety can also cause your stools to be soft, I've been there, Are you on birth control? That can cause those feelings too. Every month when I am on my period I have soft stools. Hormones mess you up. If you are really concerned I strongly suggest talking with a doctor.

The funny feelings near the incision, occasionally mine would and still itches. I noticed that it takes nearly a year for that extremely large scar to loose the pink color, and not feel like a protruding scar. As for the movement feelings, for up to three months after my first pregnancy I felt phantom kicks. I felt so attached and loved the feeling that it was like loosing a limb. It didn't happen often and it wasn't gas. But that should not last very long and you are the only one who knows your body well enough to know if it's gas or not.

Even if this is not your first child, remember that every pregnancy and having children in general is hard on your body. Sleep deprivation can cause a lot of issues. All three c-secs caused different complication and took different degrees of healing. I think I can say the same thing about pregnancy and children too. But if you are feeling really depressed or anxiety where it effects your mothering or relationship, please talk with a doctor, especially if you are concerned with your health. Everyone needs mom to be healthy! I hope this helps :-)
