I have had 2 sections. My best advice is to take it easy. Day 2 is the worst always. But when you do stand up to go to the bathroom. Make sure you sit on the edge of the bed first for a minute so that you can gather your bearings. Otherwise you will get super dizzy. Then Get up and try to stand up as straight as possible. I know it will hurt but it's the best thing for you. Definitely take your pain meds when you need them it will help you to get up and walking which will also help with recovery. But don't over due it other wise you will do more harm than help. Just go with what your body tells you. Everyone is different and heals different. But recovery isn't that bad so you will be up and moving in no time. So for now relax and enjoy that beautiful baby girl!
I've had two as well. Definitely use a pillow they give you when you cough, sneeze, etc. to press into your incision as you do. The extra support is really helpful. Also, as soon as you can take walks up and down the corridors. I used the baby bed on wheels as a support.
I also asked the nurse for a tummy binder thing last time that the hospital provided and she helped strap me in. Having the extra support for the abs was awesome.
Oh, and one of my nurses rigged this awesome contraption for me: slice the end of a diaper open, fill with ice, tape closed. The natural curve of the diaper forms to your belly shape, and the chemicals inside absorb the ice as it melts. I wore yoga pants the entire time in the hospital after I could shower, so those hold the diaper in.
And stay on top of your pain meds!!! Set a timer if you have to.
I know with heart surgeries they say a pillow over the incision sight while actively trying to sit up helps a lot, so maybe a bit of reverse pressure?
