Hi guys! It is my first time back to the blog after having baby River (I LOVE HIM!!!! AND I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE HE’S HERE!!!) via my planned c-section. I chose to have a c-section for a variety of reasons, both medical and emotional, which I will get into at a later date. I was not naive– I knew that the recovery would be challenging at times, as it is a major abdominal surgery. I wanted to plan a few weeks after River’s birth to do absolutely nothing– no cleaning, no driving (that one is a hard rule from the doctor), no cooking (don’t have to tell me twice! haha!). If you find yourself in the position where you’re having a c-section, my main advice would be:
Bring bunch of DVDs to the hospital. Matt and I went through the entire first season of Homeland. Walk as soon as possible.
