After 15 hours of labor, I ended up having a C-section when I had my son. Between the labor and C-section procedure I was pretty wiped out when it was all over.
You will have your C-section scar the rest of your life, but it is a small price to pay for a beautiful, healthy baby.
The only advantage to my scar is that they did a bikini cut incision so it is horizontal and is down pretty low on my abdomen.
I ended up having an emergency appendectomy a few years later, so now have more than one scar on my stomach.
Even though my incision is not real noticeable I get a lot of scar tissue when I have an incision like that, so mine sticks out more than some would.
It took quite a while for that incision to heal and was tender for a long time. If you know you are going to be having a C-section, take advantage of any extra help you can get because a cesarean recovery does take awhile.
