Wonderful news!!!!!! Welcome babies!!!
YES!! those afterpains are somethin' else!! Mine lasted a good 5 days (the ones where you actually have to blow through to handle the pain). The other thing that caught me off gaurd was when I first stood up (after birth)-- I could NOT breathe, my organs were all over the place! One of the midwives lifted my belly where it should be and all of a sudden I could breathe again......I am still wearing a support belt to hold me in and it has been a week since my sweet babies' birth.
Again-- good job mama!!
