I attempted a homebirth a month ago. I labored at home for about 12 hours, dialted to 7-8 cm, but ended up transferring and getting an emergency c-sec because the baby's heart tones were depressed during contractions (babe was posterior, cord turned out to be alongside the head being compressed). Not much fun at all, but I have recovered freakishly fast from the surgery. One problem though...we tried to have sex a couple nights ago and I couldn't do it. Intercourse was too painful, much worse than when I lost my virginity. I was surprised because I didn't give birth vaginally, so I figured I'd be good to go. My sister thought it was because my cervix had dialated to 8 cm and that I would be fine in a couple more weeks. I don't know what to think...any ideas?
