I had pretty severe cramping right after birth but it has been all but gone the last couple of days. But this morning I woke up with very painful cramping in my lower abdomen and pain in my perineum. Is this a cause for concern or can the cramping come and go like this?
IME it has been normal for cramping and bleeding to come and go for the first couple of weeks, so it sounds normal to me. Obviously, I don't want to tell you not to call your dr if you're worried, though! Hope you can stay off your feet and get some rest today.
Thanks for the reassurance. I took a Tylenol and that made the pain cease. I think if it continues I will call, otherwise I should be fine. I think the perineum pain might be a light case of the 'roids :( so witch hazel wipes it is for me for awhile.
