Mothers who have had a c-section - how long did your recovery take? I have just had my third a week ago. With my first, I was running around after a few hours and suffered no ill-effects. With my second, I wasn't quite so active and my wound opened a bit just from crouching to put washing in the machine, so I had to take it easy for a few days. This time, as I have 3 kids to care for, I am not able to rest as much as I should. My wound has been bleeding slightly but I think its because I am coughing a lot, the kids have given me a cold. I am also trying to keep basic housework under control but its exhausting me.
