So Im FINALLY starting to feel like myself again. I gave birth almost a month ago and the pains are easing off (vaginally & breast wise) & my bleeding had slowed to an almost complete stop. I cant see any stitches, im able to wipe again (not blot lol) and give myself a good cleaning in the shower (all still cautiously of course). the bleeding was so light I got away with wearing panty liners for the past week & would have the occasional brown old blood type spotting. Last night before bed I went to the bathroom & lo and behold, lochia has returned & I'm now back to sporting long thick-ish diaper pads. *sigh* the worst part about birth is the recovery I hate these mother effing pads & this continuous bleeding vagina of mine!!!!
