How is everyone feeling physically? I am 8 days postpartum and still feeling pretty sore. I had a vaginal birth and Oliver was over 9lbs. I had a first degree tear and stitches though the OB seemed as if she thought it was close to a second degree. I am kinda down that I don't feel better than I do. I so want to play with my 3 year old on the floor, take walks, push him on the swing, drive and I can't do any of this yet. I can't remember it taking so long to heal last time. I am really trying to rest and do the stairs only a few times a day but I also get restless just laying around. It is hard at night too because I have to get up and down in bed or out of bed to sit in the rocker and nurse so many times. I am lucky that my husband is home another week, thank goodness. I really don't know how moms do it whose partners can't stay home for very long. I know some of your babes are a month old or older and hope you are feeling great at this point.
Any tips to healing?
