So I have kind of a direct/weird question for all you ladies that have had babies already and delivered vaginally....how bad is the pain down there really? I live on the 3rd floor of an apt so I can only imagine what doing the stairs is going to feel like when we come home from the hospital. Does it constantly kill?? Or is it just bad for a few days and then gradually better?
Does anyone else get really anxious at night? I think I'm worried about him wailing for hours and not being able to calm him. Plus, during the day, we have visitors and help but at night, it's just us.
I've already had a couple nights of Baby crying for NO REASON for like an hour in the middle of the night, and let me just say.....take deep breaths and remember that the baby can't understand what you're saying or why you're agitated. The first night I got super annoyed and agitated and angry at Baby. A combination of baby blues, sleep deprivation, and my own type A personality combined to a horrible night of me telling Baby "shh...be quiet....shutupshutupshutup!!!!" And then me waking up the next morning feeling super guilty that I told my two week old to shut up. After that I vowed to be better and not be angry, because Baby can't help it. So things have gotten a lot better. I definitely think time helps things. Baby now recognizes me as Mommy, I feel more competent in taking care of him, and I've been through enough loud nights to know that it gets better in the morning and I just need to wait it out. So that's my advice for nighttime wailing: it'll get better, you just have to try and stay calm and wait it out. Also, I'm sure you're doing great! Edit, because I forgot to tag @MRSCORKER
My bleeding stopped around day 4 pp and has just been brown old blood since. Today at 9 days pp, the bright red blood is back. Anyone else have it disappear then come back days later?
WORF: I did not come here to
admire the scenery.
DAX: If you say so. I guess we should just go
WORF: Well maybe. I would not be so hasty.
DAX: I take it the scenery has improved?
WORF: A few months ago, when I was commanding
the Defiant on a scouting mission in the Gamma Quadrant, we encountered a
protostar cluster, a swirling mass of colour set against a background of
glowing clouds and burning sky. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever
seen, until now.
DAX: I've got to take you on vacation more
