I'm doing pretty well. I had a c-section and will be 6 weeks pp on Friday. I only occasionally have some pain on the incision, but I've started walking again and moving around more.

I had a vaginal birth with only a small 1st degree tear with one stitch just over 3 weeks ago. The stitch came out probably a week to a week and a half ago or so. I'm pretty much fully recovered, just waiting for my 6 week checkup to clear me for DTD again.

C section on the 6th! I had some bleeding from my incision a week or so ago which was a little scary, but other than that it's been okay. It still feels very bruisy-sore around my incision and it's very tight around there so I'm paranoid when I stretch, walk etc lol

Vaginal birth 6 weeks ago, required an episiotomy with 3 stitches. I recovered SO much quicker this time than I did 8 yrs ago! I've been doing some gentle walking for about 3 wks and going to kick start an exercise routine tomorrow.

Totally off-topic, but Julie, I LOVE the pic of Ian and Alonna with the baby. :)
