I have a general recovery question for you (since introducing myself here I've found you ladies to be extremely helpful, so I hope you don't mind).
I'm almost 6 months postpartum. In the past 2 weeks, I've noticed that sometimes after doing semi-heavy lifting (DS who is about 15 lbs, laundry, groceries), I'll feel a tugging sensation to the left of my belly button. It's not a pulled muscle and it's not necessarily painful, but it's obvious and sometimes makes me stop in my tracks. I can best describe it as a lurching sensation (stomach on a roller coaster) or how it felt when DS would roll around in utero.
I mentioned it to my PCP last week and he said it's normal and that after pregnancy, especially a c-section, it takes a while for all the organs to fall back into place. He said his wife is 2 years pp and still feels things shifting on occasion. He told me that if it increases in frequency or becomes painful to give him and/or my OB a call.
So my questions are 1) did any of you experience this? 2) If you did, how long did it last for? 3) At what point would you call the doctor? I am not one to make a big deal out of things and hate calling the doctor unless absolutely necessary, but obviously want to make sure everything is okay.
Thanks in advance ladies! Happy Thanksgiving!
