Is it any easier the second time around? I have heard that the recovery isn't nearly as bad.



Since my first c-section was so recent, I don't think my doctor is going to okay a VBAC, so I'm mentally preparing to go through the whole c-section thing again (ugh).

I thought my second c-section was a little more difficult. For one, I had another child to care for, therefore, had to get on my feet more often. Personally, I had some other issues, so that probably added to why it was more difficult.

Yeah, the first few weeks are going to be hellish when it comes to lifting DD.



UGH.

My second was way easier than my first and my third was a breeze.
