Post partum question - stitches

My baby is 20 days old and I had a second degree tear and got stitches. My flow is almost clearish, and I was feeling so much better but yesterday and today I feel like my stitches are being ripped out when I stand up or sit down. Anyone else have this problem?

    Yeah-Same feeling. I also keep getting suspicious that I'm getting a UTI. I can't wait for things to feel less gross and uncomfortable down there!

    Looking forward to meeting our first child in January 2015!

  • My LO is almost 6 weeks and all of a sudden I'm having so much pressure down there. When I sit on a hard surface I feel like I'm sitting on my bladder, and my rectum feels huge and bulgy. This is all new within the past few days. I'm glad I have my 6 week check up on Monday.
  • I had a similar feeling after DS, but it turned out that I was not healing properly. They watched it closely, and it did heal, but they were considering re stitching it if it hadn't.

  • Thanks. I called and they said if I don't have a fever, or increased bleeding, it's normal. Hopefully its feeling better by Monday or I'll call again and ask to go in.
