My body hurts!

I was complaining about pregnancy pains, now I'm complaining about post partum pains. Ouch.
I think my lower back and upper back and legs are still sore from labor. My crotch just feels swollen but not really in pain. My boobs... Are another ball game. Nipples are sensitive. Que engorgement. I am ready to release some of this milk!!! I can't even hug my DS1 without flinching. My milk is still sort of coming in so even after pumping as much as I can, they're still incredibly engorged. I'm 4 days PP today...

Re: My body hurts!

  • I couldn't believe how sore I was after labor either. My legs and back felt ok but upper body was super sore. I did most of my laboring standing at a squat bar using my arms to support myself and then pushing was like an Olympic event using my arms to pull my legs. I'm day 8pp and feeling much less sore in my crotch finally.

    Crazy, right? My worst was definitely my crutch/butt/thighs from pushing and tearing, but I was sore all through my back and shoulders, too. All of it really started feeling better yesterday, which was 6 days pp.

    My boobs are freaking killing me, too. I have oversupply issues and DDs demands are so random that I never get drained. And the nips were really bad but getting better!

    Are you EPing? I'm guessing yes. But if not, don't pump too much...you're just telling your body to make more milk and engorgement will last longer and lead to oversupply. It's best to let baby establish your supply. But if you're EPing, ignore that advice, obviously. :]

    I hear ya! Everyday gets a little better. Don't be afraid to take the maximum amount of ibuprofen allowed and mix in some tylonels if you feel like you need it. I found it impossible to get from laying down to standing position but once I did and walked around, I felt better.

  • OMG yes!  My lower back is killing me and I'm sore from where the epidural was.  I had my DTaP in the hospital, so my upper arm is a sore lump.  I only had scratches as opposed to true tearing.  Maybe a 1st degree tear but not really...I do have two stitches this time though and my poor vag is so sore.  My neck, shoulders, legs......ugh.  And then my milk came in so my boobs are rock hard and don't feel good at all.  Le sigh.

    Minus the milk coming in part, I could have written this word for word. I'm so effing sore all over. And the cramping during feedings...OMG. I cry out every time :[
