RE: do abdominal muscles grow back together after C-section?
My OB said that they separate the muscles and they knit back together after about 8w or so. That's why you're not supposed to be doing any lifting at first (and definitely no sit ups!).
The c/s itself isn't that bad. I didn't even known they started till they were 15 minutes in already.
I don't think that it's any worse getting back in shape, it just may take a little longer due to that 6-8 week wait. But who's awake enough to exercise that soon? :P
