Jeans After A C Section

Is there a certain amount of time you should wait to wear jeans after a c section? i had my baby 2 weeks ago and would be able to fit in my pre pregnancy jeans but they are all pretty low waisted and am scared they could harm my incision. Anyone know about this?

First of all, on behalf of all the rest of us who had c-sections months ago and still can't fit into our pre-pregnancy jeans, I have to tell you that we hate you. LOL! I really don't know anything about this because I was one of those unfortunate souls whose incision did not close properly. My surgical wound was open for 7 weeks and I could barely wear huge sweatpants pants without discomfort, so I could not have imagined attempting something with a zipper and b___ton! Maybe you could call the nurses at your OB office and just ask them if there is any harm if your waistband rubs on the insicion at this point. It's not a dumb question at all.

RY-I fit into my pre-preg. jeans too after 2 weeks, but I don't wear hiphuggers. I have had no problem with wearing my jeans though. I would think though that if your incision is healed, that you should be ok. Try it out and if they feel uncomfortable, then I would wait a little bit before trying again. I don't know about you but my underwear cover my incision so if you are the same, you would have some covering over your incision so not a direct rub from the jeans.

I feel so bruised right along the scar from the inside, it hurts to wee or cough because of it x
