I promise there almost definitely isn't! When you have a baby you never really get the time you need to rest and recuperate, so full recovery can take ages. At 6 weeks, you've basically had NO time to recover, since you'll be running around looking after the children/baby and up all hours. It's ridiculous for anyone to even suggest to you that you should be in perfect health already.

To be fair I've had great help the first 4/5 weeks its just now I'm being left a bit more too it.
I have a 4.5 and a 3 year old as well so it is hectic.
I'll take up the random pains with a private gynae next week i think. Even for piece of mind!

6 weeks is just the acute recovery phase, the open incision, open wound in uterus, etc. I had a c-section with my first, probably took 6-9 months to feel "normal", but still had the odd twinge for probably well past a year (then I got pregnant again, so who knows).
