they gave me a colace after birth to help. she said it's not going to make you go, but it will make it easier to go when you do, lol. i didn't poop at the hospital. i did when i got home and it sucked! i'm not going to lie or sugarcoat it. it hurt! real bad. but... you can take the colace to help and you'll be fine at some point. it will feel like forever, but it's not forever. lol.
i'm not intending to scare you, but... no one prepared me for the pain of pooping. i'm trying to help you here.
and the question about the stitches..... they hurt, but it's more of a tight kind of feeling, not so much a hurt, if that makes sense. they're just kind of annoying feeling. and they just dissolve away or fall out on their own.
