Hiya. After my section I started to bleed straight away too, I felt like it didnt last that long though. I barely even remember the recovery process after the section, only when they took the dressing off as it was like a giant plaster on a hairy belly :')

Yeah that's the one place you don't want to rip a plaster off ... I'm still slightly bleeding 5 weeks on, although now my concerns are my new flap of skin x

Dont worry about that. I had the same! I was so paranoid, it actually disappears quite fast. Now 3.5 years on, I can barely see my scar and don't have the wee fold. Just hoping they will let me VBAC next time around, I have nightmares about how painful it would be second time around...

I'm hoping exercise and diet will fix it when I'm allowed to exercise lol, my flap is fairly big as I had a huge bump from twins.
Having given birth both ways, vaginal delivery was lovely as you get to hold baby immediately and you can get up and move around and do things, but my planned section was lovely also it was nice and relaxed, I knew when I was having the babies, just the recovery is a bit slow for my liking

Fingers crossed you get a VBAC, are you expecting or ttc? X

Still only TTC, but we are all fingers and toes crossed that this is the month! I thought planned was lovely too, I imagine the recovery was a bit tougher after twins. It was good as my fiance got to hold the wee one first, his face was priceless

Oh fingers definitely crossed for you , my husband got to go and check on them for me and got a hold before me, but it's nice that with it being twins this time we both get to hold a baby at the same time x
