Re: Big Mama's C-section (support)Stories/Tips for Recovery!!!

I was between 255-260lbs and 5'1 when I had my first via emergency C-Section. I had the same tummy hanging issues as PPs. I wore super baggy sweat pants (mens sweats lol) and tucked them under my belly, along with my hugggeee granny panties =) I also used a cool hair dryer.
I honestly don't remember my down time being huge. I was in bed for 24hours because they kept my catheter in, then I was up and showering and walking small distances. At 2 weeks post partum I was basically back to my normal self. I couldn't walk forever without getting sore, but I was able to get through the day easy enough.
