I am a FTM, but had a C-Section after 30 hours of labor.
That being said, I really feel my recovery was easy-peasy. The big thing was that I forced myself to get up and move around as much as I could safely.
I went off of the narcotic pain relievers and was just on tylenol/ibuprofen every 2 hours at day 2. It still hurt to get in and out of bed, but wasn't unbearable. By the time we got home at day 4 (because of the extra day laboring), I was slow moving, but fine.
I compare that to hearing about women's vaginal births with tearing/stitches, and I don't really feel mine was that much more dramatic.
The only surprise for me was that I bled for weeks afterwards. It is totally normal, you bleed just like women that had a vaginal birth, but I didn't expect it as I didn't look much into C-Sections when I went in for my induction.
You have even more going for you that yours would be scheduled, so you wouldn't be quite as worn down as I was, but mine was still pretty easy compared to what I would have pictured before I had it.
