Post partum recovery
Fri, 11-12-2010 - 12:31pm
Hi all! Long time no post huh? I'm sorry I haven't been around like I like too. I lurk every single day but never find time to actually sit and post and respond like i want to. Everyones babies are growing so fast and are all so beautiful. I don't know maybe it's just me but I think our angels gave us the most beautiful rainbow
babies. Anyway I was wondering about recovery. I am almost exactly three months out pp and I tore to a second degree. Everything looked fine at my pp 6 week check but man does that muscle right inside hurt DTD. Sorry if this is too much info but I feel like your my friends so here it goes. I have tried several different lubricants and it definitly helps but I feel like I'm a virgin again down there! I can only tolerate missionary NOTHING else. Do you ladies have any suggestions as to how to make things better down there again and if this is normal how long till I'm myself again and it doesn't hurt. Oh and I'm also EB Ariana if that matters. Thanks so much all. Love you ladies! I will be more active for sure in a few weeks when nursing school ends. It's kicking my butt too Crystal. It's even more difficult when my DH is about to graduate and get into graduate school! Uuughhh almost there I guess. I will post a whole update on miss Ariana later today when my husband is home to watch the busy bee. She has grown up so much! I love her to death and definitly want to try again but am going to try and hold off till after we both graduate if possible. I already forget to take my mini pill ALL the time. I knew I needed and IUD.

HEY! HEY! I have missed you Kendra! I know nothing about the vaginal dryness or the Breastfeeding just wanted to say hey! And that I am glad you are feeling my pain because I have tons of clinical paperwork to do and 2 big HUGE tests on Monday & Tuesday in Health Assessment and Pharmacology! So I am so glad that Ariana is growing and doing so good. It is good to hear from you, I was wondering about you! Talk to you soon! Good luck with everything.
