Did I injure something?

I know I know I've overdone it...had emerg c-section on Feb 5th and pulled a muscle or something internally a week later by pulling myself up out of bed using my ab muscles (not thinking), it seemed to be healing fine and now yesterday I was holding baby who was crying and fussing for hours on end and I think I pulled myself up off the couch while holding her and used the same muscles because now it feels like I just had the section again...I can hardly move! Should I see the dr? Has anyone else done this? Also the last 2 days I took extra long walks, an hour, 2 hours the day before - perhaps that did it, I'm not too sure what I did but OUCH I'm in pain. I feel so stupid!

First of all, congrats on your new baby!

I do not really know what you are describing exactly, but my advice would be to contact your dr if you have any concerns. Feb 5th is a long time ago to still be having that kind

Sarah, I agree that you should probably put a call into your dr.
