Who has gone for their 6 week postpartum check up?

I had mine yesterday. I'm down 34 lbs, only 14 to go to reach my prepregnancy weight! My tear is all healed up, although I was a little surprised to learn that I had a second degree tear. When I asked in the hospital the dr just said "oh it's not bad, you just had one continuous stitch." I wish they had told me, I'm a big girl, I can handle it. But whatever.

I was cleared for sex, although I'm still a little weary. I was also put back on the pill, progesterone only since I'm nursing/pumping. I'm still nervous about getting pregnant, but the pill should kick in within 2 weeks. If we do DTD, we'll definitely be using backup birth control for a month or so just to be on the safe side.

It was so strange going back to the OB's office after not seeing them for 6 weeks. I basically lived there for the last month of my pregnancy. It was nice to show off pictures of the babies, although the ladies were teasing me about having another set of twins. No thank you!
