Eh. I'm 3 1/2 weeks out. I had tearing, a hematoma, and apparently I got hemorrhoids. I'm still uncomfortable down there, but definitely getting better. I just wish these **** hemorrhoids would go away.
3 weeks out...still bleeding, but it's slowed enough that I can wear cloth pads without grossing myself out. Thank goodness! I was getting rubbed raw by the pads. My hemorrhoid has also disappeared. Woohoo! Had no tearing or anything, so that's the only thing I needed to heal.

I am 9 days PP, swelling is gone, bleeding still moderate. I didn't have any tearing this time (Praise Jesus! That was the WORST last time!), but I did end up with some nasty hemorrhoids. In good news, even those have almost disappeared. As of yesterday, I had 7 pounds left to drop, so it's been coming down pretty quickly (I was up 14 pounds over pre-preg a week ago). Overall, I am back to my old self, for the most part.
Ten days out, got my 30 staples out today. Still sore at incision took nothing but ibuprofen after surgery. At Dr today I asked them to weigh me even though they weren't going to. I'm actually down 13 pounds from my original weight at my first pre natal appt... I can probably thank the long morningsickness ffor that. I was hoping to be playing softball this week but I think I will wait one more week.
