I had my baby by c-section 3 weeks ago today, everyone around me keeps telling me to take it easy and not to lift a finger, my husband won't let me do anything! I am starting to go insane lol. I am very house proud and a 'cleanaholic' like 'Monica' from friends so not being able to do the vac, polish, washing, ironing etc is doing my head in. Of course baby is taking up most of my time anyway but when she's sleeping I am so tempted to get the vac out or the polish, clean the windows etc. I am being sensible, looking after myself but just wondering when did you start to resume housework without the fear of undoing stitches like my family & friends keep threatening me will happen! As I live in a flat I also have stairs (no lift) to navigate and can't yet manage the pushchair & baby down them to get out and about, I feel like a prisoner!
