I gave birth on 12/26 - just over 2 weeks ago, and still having pain & uncomfort at my incision site.. is this normal? I am worried there is something wrong, and it shouldn't take this long to stop hurting
I gave birth on 12/3 - 11:13pm after 22 hours. Ended up with a 2nd degree episiotomy. I was very worried about the stitches and going to the bathroom. I had them start with a stool softener after birth along with the 800mg motrins after a recommendation from my L&D nurse. She was great. I have to say it wasn't as bad as I thought. I was stashing up all the goodies - tucks, numbing spray, pads, cream, etc from each nurse when they asked me if I was running low so I would have an ample supply at home. In the beginning I felt like I gave birth out of my butt instead of vaginally!
I was religious about using all the products and my cut healed very quickly without hurting at all. I have to say I thought it would tear when going number 2 for the first time, but my worst time was after it was healed. My PP bleeding stopped at 3 weeks and today I'm pretty much 100% at 6 weeks and 3 days PP. I go to the dr tomorrow.
I would give it another week or so and keep using all the products. They really help! GL
