I had a c-section with my last baby and plan on another one and I was wondering about the swimming part as well.....I will have to ask that as well...
As for the numbness, yes it is normal....Mine lasted quite a while....the numbness diminished but months after I still had a bt of numbness around the incision....
Sometimes the bleeding can pick up randomly any time during the 6-8 weeks postpartum. Many people will think it has stopped at 2-3 weeks then it will pick up randomly based on your activity levels (it's pretty much the scab from where the placenta was attached healing, when you do too much, it's like you are scratching at that scab).

I was numb for quite some time...it takes a while but it slowly comes back.
wow done bleeding after 2 weeks?? i am jealous!!! If it is a clean water source (a pool) then I think you would be fine if you are completely done bleeding. No dirty water as your cervix is probably not closed all the way. But I would just call your OB to be sure.
