I had my check up & it went great. Got to talk about delivery and how much we liked it and liked her, the midwife! Everything looked fine and she did not want to put Ella down :) Such a sweet lady.

Vaginal delivery just over four weeks ago and I think I can safely say I feel back to normal. I have a second degree episiotomy that sucked for about two weeks after but I'm fortunately not feeling it at all any more. Spotting stopped a few days ago and now I'm getting EWCM...I wonder if it's just a part of the healing process still or if I actually already ovulated! I've been supplementing along with breastfeeding so I guess it's not out of the realm of possibility. I need to have my Dr. write me a script for the mini pill at my six week appt.

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.

LOL, we couldn't wait for the 6 week check up to DTD... 2 weeks PP and we went for it. With Nate I ripped and had stitches and we still only waited I think 3 weeks.

AMAZING!! Addie is 3 weeks old and she was by far my easiest pregnancy, labor/delivery (vaginal) and recovery. I never had any pain after and felt normal pretty much right away. I only had to take motrin twice in the hospital due to the crazy after delivery contractions but that's it. Other wise, I pretty much left the hospital feeling like I did before I got pregnant. I didn't rip or anything though. Still it was much easier/different than with the other 3.

Had a vaginal delivery three weeks ago, and so far I'm doing pretty well.

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