Quoting TantricLemons:" If you tore and had to get stitches, how long did it take you to recover? I am 8 days PP and the pain ... [snip!] ... now. I am seriously overwhelmed. I guess I just wanted to know how normal is my recovery. When did you start feeling better."
I'm 6 days PP and I was feeling great the first few days after birth. I was surprised. But starting yesterday, it got more painful! What gives? I feel like I got kicked with a steel toe boot in my vag. Ouch. And I think my stitches tore a little so I'm going to the dr today at 3 to get them looked at just to be safe.
Like you though, I have seriously been over doing it. Between the doctors visits, chores around the house, and running errands that I had, I know I wasn't getting enough rest. We will see what he says when I go today.
Just wanted to let you know you're not alone though! Mine got worse too. Right now, I am laying in bed with the heating pad between my legs on low and let me tell you, HEAVEN. Feel better.
