This was encouraging! I hope you are right--I keep hearing I will forget the pain of crowning.
As far as the miscarriage --I had one before him and I was convinced it would happen again for most of the 1st trimester, so I refused to get excited.  I had to constantly pray that paranoia away and trust that God knows what He's doing one way or the other.

for all the ladies that have had kids, how long did it take you after giving birth to be up and about? i mean moving around somewhat comfortably. I have heard a couple days after and I have heard weeks for both vaginal and csection births.

After my c section, I was up and moving around like normal after a week. The nurses at the hospital had me up and walking around the day after the surgery, but I was in a lot of pain until they gave me a medical binder to wrap around my waist. After that, I felt better and better.

I was up and walking around right after birth and didn't really have any pain at all. The most pain I had was back pain from the epidural. But otherwise.. I was pretty much back to normal immediately afterwards. It's different for everybody though..

I am still in no shape to be on my feet for long. I feel better everyday though.
I think I will need the full 6 weeks.

i was constipated for 2 weeks because i was so scared to poop. i just knew i'd rip myself in two.  oh lawd, the fear of it all....Cry

with my second and third, i made sure i actually TOOK the stool softeners they gave me, and it was all good. drink your fluids!



Yep....but I did the same thing you did. I didn't even blow my nose the 1st 2 days.LOL
I was on pins and needles passing gas. What made me stop putting it off was my midwife. She said waiting would cause impacted bowels. So I went and took what I thought would be a quick poop.Ouch  I felt like a huge turd was lodged up there and could only get it half way out.
I struggled for 10 minutes and out of fear of pushing out something besides poop before I thought of my emergency tried and true bowel stimulator; STRONG black coffee!

I had my hubby boil me some water and made some instant folgers....literally within 3 minutes all that poop turned into liquid and my colon was cleared within 10 minutes or so! I felt wired, but it was worth it. I drank about 4 oz and that did the trick. I have been good since.

I having been drinking a gallon of water a day since my milk came in.

Stool softeners never worked for me, they just give me gas. I do make sure I eat plenty of fresh produce and whole grains.
