i had c-section about 3weeks back. this week is my last week of confinement. my mum kept warning me not to squat or bend or else intestines will drop out. this morning she said 1of our relative also had c-sec & she walked too fast, something dropped from inside her body & had to go to doc.
i hear quite worried cos my dog will be coming back next week & normally im the 1 who clears her poo so ve to either squat or bend but what my mum said worries me.
so how long after c-section then i can squat ?
iszit ok to kneel instead of squat?
i squat on the 2nd week after c-sect... that one was not intention want ... something drop on the floor and i just squat & pick up... and squat down to coax my dear son... as long as you dont squat for too long it's okay ..
I squatted within the first week of c-sect coz i had to dress my baby after her bath (the changing mat was on the floor, just outside the bathroom). My mother in law was struggling with my darling and looked as if she was about to tear my baby apart so i told her i dress baby myself from then on...
i squad in the 2 week , as there i start to feed my baby , and coax him sometime .. i think should be ok to squad awhile , but not too long ..
The only thing I'm not allowed to do is carry stuff heavier than my baby and wear clothes that are tight around the waistline for the next six weeks.
I started to squat on my 3rd day after my c-sect . Also unintentional cos I dropped something in my ward and I cant simple press the bell to ask the nurse to pick up for me ..
After I discharged, sometimes i bath while squatting cos i used a pail to wash myself with the herb, so squatting is more for convenient sake.
I didnt know cannot carry heavy things....i carried my son (about 15kg) cos I had not been able to carry him during my pregnancy...didnt realise after sooo long, he is much heavier than I thought !!
