I had a decent amount of bleeding immediately after birthing my 9.5 lb son 10 weeks ago. I was on a pitocin drip for 6 hours afterward to keep things under control. Then my afterpains were pretty bad for about 2 weeks. Now whenever I do anything physical for a couple of hours I start getting bad cramps. Is this just my uterus still shrinking? Or are my intestines all tangled or something? This is strange to me and at my PP checkup everything seemed fine but I'm just wondering if anyone else has taken a lot longer than the typical 6 weeks to heal..should I be worried?
