  1. Emergency c-section (after 38 hours of labor)
  2. I went back to full time grad school and working as a teaching assistant after 7 weeks.
  3. My body was fine, but I regretted it because emotionally I wasn’t ready. I ended up quitting 5 months later and became a Stay-At-Home Mom. But that was mostly due to the fact that I had no help with the baby because my husband traveled out of town every week for work. Physically though, I felt completely back to normal about 4 or 5 weeks after the c-section.
  4. I had to go back because I was grad student with a teaching assistantship and it was the start of the semester. No maternity leave.

1. Emergency c-section after 6 hours of labor.

2. I went back after 8 weeks but could have gone back sooner.

3. My body was fine but it would have been a little rough emotionally, althtough I’m not sure any amount of time would have made a difference!
