Also my dh is really eager to start dtd again and I am nervous if I haven't actually healed the whole way.
Anyone else struggling with recovery?
With my first section I feel like I bled for 6 weeks. After this one I've had light-ish bleeding the whole time. I start to think it's about over then gush a lot of bright red stuff about once a day, but it's been hard to slow down with an active toddler to chase after.
I'm 3 weeks post today and am still cautious with my scar, but I've also lost feeling in my belly from the scar to an inch or two above. It's a very strange feeling and I really hope it comes back. I'm really upset by this! Anyone else experience loss of feeling after a section?? I think it's normal for it to be tender 6 - 8 weeks out, but I associate tender and painful as two separate things. If I remember correctly, it took me the whole 8 weeks to heal from my first section, but the memory of post-partum recovery from my first is a bit of a fog.
howeberry, I'm 5.5 weeks pp, and I have a little numb area above my incision, just under my bellybutton. my midwife told me that sensation may return gradually, or not at all. besides being a little odd, though, I don't usually think about it until I'm laying down to sleep and running my hands over it to see what's going on down there!
