I had my first PP chiro visit today. Boy did I need it. For about 5 days after my hospital stay I was so unsteady on my feet in the middle of the night all due to back pain. Everything was out of place... at least that is how it felt. DD had her first chiro visit too. I felt movement in her neck/shoulder area and sure enough, something was out of place. She slept through the whole thing!
We also have a belly button! I didn't even know that her cord fell off until I looked at the floor and saw the remnants at least 20 minutes after the fact.
Also, I just started bleeding again. Not a ton, just enough to keep changing liners, but it went from brown to red. Ugh.
Rosie - the increased leaking could also be due to the lecithin. When I started it I began leaking from a part of my nipple that had previously never leaked after only 3 pills. Then I put a hot compress on the pluged part and over half of the plugged area leaked out just by sitting there. It was so good to see! LOL!
so, i have finally stopped bleeding. haven't worn a liner or anything for almost a week! but, the skin on my face is absolutely ridiculous! it is so dry and is driving me crazy! it's been this way since about the second week pp and today i am 5 weeks pp. the lower part of my face along the jawbone is the worst. looking in the mirror it doesn't look too bad as long as i've put some coconut oil on it. if i haven't, then my face is covered with white flakes. when i run my fingers over my face it just feels so rough and i have had some days when my jawline has just itched like crazy! is anyone going through this? i don't remember this happening last time.
