Anyone else feeling very tender after delivery? What are you doing to ease the soreness?
Harry was born 4 days ago and I'm feeling really sorry for myself today! I had an episiotomy and my lady area is super tender right now! I dont remember being this sore with jake, but i imagine it'll be harder to recover after my second episiotomy.
Just wanted to share! lol!
Episiotomies are the worst! I only had one with my first baby. To be honest it was so painful that at my six week follow up I thought they were going to tell me it was infected, but it wasn't. It just too a long time to heal unfortunately. The witch hazel pads gave me temporary relief....but mainly just rest and time. I can sympathize with your pain! Have you tried using ice or does that make it worse?
As bad as I tore i am thankful the recovery wasnt that bad. It still swells if i walk around to much during the day. I also have to sit in a strange position usually 1 leg indian style since putting to much pressure down there aches. I hope you start feeling better soon!
My lady parts are feeling a lot better, but the first week was pure h*ll when it came to the pain. I had an espisiotomy also. I thought the pain and soreness would never go away the first week, but it has gotten significantly better over the last couple days. I hope you start feeling better soon!
thanks so much girls, it really helps to know that this is normal! Ice doesnt help, but i have a hot water bottle on it atm and it feels sooo much better. I kinda forget that its only been 5 days and i need to be patient!
With my DD I tore all 4 ways and was really sore. They sent me home with a week of Percocet and that really helped. I couldn't really walk much. I had to sit on one of those donuts so I didn't push on it. I also used Dermoplast numbing spray after every time I used the bathroom. Have you tried any of those ideas? After a week, mine felt better and by 2 weeks I was back to normal.
im right there with u, i feel like ive been in an accident. i feel sore all over and my section scar burns! all part of the healing proces
s the midwives keep saying. my hubby's having a vesectomy in the next few weeks, so, i wont be doing this again! hope u feel better soon, hugs
