My clit still feels off from my last delivery. I'm not sure what it is.. it has just felt.. weird since then.

but a scrape would just make it feel a little bit sore, right?

post #203 of 259
Well, a variety of sore, yes. It might be knifelike the first few times you pee, but yeah, just sore after that.
post #204 of 259

ok, well mine hasn't been at all knifelike. thanks for clearing it up.

I'm constantly aware of my boobs. Nursing all day and night, of course, doesn't help. They feel tingly itchy, normal, achy, full, heavy, leaky, etc... They just FEEL all day long. It's a bit exhausting. I also have a milk blister that will not go away. I'm looking forward to them getting used to nursing so I don't walk around feeling like my boobs are bigger than my head.

My clit hurts too. It doesn't stab or burn... it aches. Feels like I pulled a clit muscle. But I'm pretty sure clits don't have muscles! blush.gif

 

DH wants to dtd... I've, ehem, taken care of him a few times since DS was born and I'm sexually/emotionally so ready... but physically I don't know if I can handle it. The stitches are gone and everything (except the aforementioned clit) feels fine most of the time. But when the area where the stitches were gets tugged or stretched it stills stabs. Doesn't bode well for sex.

I had to have phySical therapy after ds1 was born in order to have sex that wasn't painful. It worked wonders. It just hurt whenever we tried. My pt said that the vagina goes throgh more trauma giving birth than a linebacker getting sacked in a football game.

I have not showered/bathed in a week....

 

I have not brushed my teeth in two days...

 

The other night my husband and I got "it" on with Jasper in the bassinet in the same room and I felt so guilty...

post #209 of 259

I felt weird the first time we dtd with ds in the room, but we got used to it. Only when he was asleep.

Oh yeah, he was asleep...but I still felt....odd. lol

post #211 of 259

we've shared a bedroom with DS since he was born and have 2 more kids... so obviously got used to DTD with the kids around. Hasn't been a big issue really. but yes, obviously when they are sleeping.

 

As for waiting until you are healed... definitely do. Its hard but better in the long run I think, for your body to be ready. And definitely talk to your midwife/ob if you are having pain or weird symptoms. I think its definitely better to take care of yourself than let it go.

 

And YES to the weird PP stuff. I tell my pregnant-for-the-first time friends about it b/c it was such a shock!

But now, after my third, I am having a lot less of that. I had sweats, swelling, bad skin, bad BO with the other two- haven't had it much this time...

 

I  was told that breastfeeding hormones can make for vaginal dryness, definitely make sure you've got ample lube on hand

and, don't forget that some people can get pregnant again right away...

So...had a pp diabetes issue.  After our 2am nurse, i was exhausted and failed to eat my granola bar that I typically eat after feeding her.  And I forgot to eat dinner the night before.  I come to in the bathroom, washing my hands at 6am on Sunday.  Apparently, from DH's account, I woke my dh by kicking him and calling him an asshole, fought him on drinking some juice, and locked myself in the bathroom where I crapped on the floor.  At least my subconscious appreciates clean hands.  Yay low blood sugar.  DH said at least I got the room right,  I got really upset afterwards though because he was holding the baby and her said something about mommy having an angry low.  I was so worried I had hurt her, but apparently I had avoided her entirely.  I was so scared I had done something and couldn't remember, I held her and sobbed for a while,  Not doing that again!

 

I feel you girls on the "there"ness of boobs.  It isn't that they hurt, it is just all the sensations are exhausting.  Not to mention the little monkey attached to one all day and night,

 

What is the reason behind the bo?  It is driving me nuts

post #213 of 259

not_telling--yikes! Eat up, girl.

not sure about the bo, but I get it too. Mine smells kinda milky but different; definitely off. DH sniffed my armpits last night and that's when I knew it wasn't just me. Ew.

post #214 of 259

My armpits smell like maple syrup thanks to all the fenugreek I'm taking to try to up my milk supply yummy.gif haha

 

I'm having horrible gas/pooping pain which I'm assuming has something to do with the c-section.  It's not constipation, but man it hurts like hell.  Feels like my intestines are going to blow out of my ass if I poop wrong.

 

The c-section feelings are really weird in general. My whole abdomen is sore, but the area where the incision is is totally numb.  It creeps me out. And I think my incision has the beginning of an infection. Joy.

 

And yes to boob "feelings" and having a kid hanging off you all day.

post #215 of 259

livacreature - glad you're ok - that must have been very scary.

post #216 of 259

livacreature, yikes. Glad you are OK. That's quite the hypo. Have you considered turning down your basals rather than needing to eat a granola bar every time you nurse?

IME, you eventually get used to that and/or it goes away. It took about a year for me, but then I no longer had that odd feeling of numbness.

post #217 of 259

Right now my basals are off, the only insulin I'm getting is when I bolus with meals.  It is crazy! 

 

Fenugreek leads to maple syrup smell?  I'd have to beat DH off with a stick!!!!

Ugh. Hemorrhoids suck. As does constipation. Especially the two together. And I know all the things to do to try to fix it/them... but it all seems like too much effort with no sleep and a little human hanging off my boobies all day long.
