C section mommas ... Question about after birth

I know everyone is different but I just wanted to get a rough idea about after the c section . I was wondering if your belly goes down at all. I'm trying to figure out what I will pack to wear on my way home after the few days after the c section. Some women say their stomach goes down right away. I am assuming I might be bloated after the surgery though. Should I expect my stomach to be bigger, the same right before birth or more like 8 months pregnant?
