Tummy pains 8 weeks after c-sec, is this normal? Part of healing process?

I have been walking DS1 to primary school and pushing a heavy pram with DS2 in it, 2 hours brisk walking a day, part of it, there and back, up a steep hill. Have I hurt myself doing this, or would my tummy be hurting at this stage anyway? It is swollen feeling at the bottom and there is a dull ache internally.

How long have you been doing that? And how long had it been hurting? Thinking you should get that checked out...

I have been doing the walk for 2 weeks, but the pains started two days ago. I'll see how I go today and then phone the docs I think.

Yes definitely get it checked out. It may be just the pram pushing causing the pain but best to urge on side of caution and let the doc have a look ...

Take it steady!

I only had pains like that after doing too much lifting/walking/pushing shopping trolley. I think you need to find a way to take it easier (or slower?). Maybe ask a friend to do one of the school tums for a week or so?

Talk to your GP and get checked out. If you're pushing yourself too hard you could really do yourself some internal damage.
