I had an episiotomy (grrrrh.... the midwife did one even though I specifically told my OB and put into my birth plan that i didnt want it and would rather take my chances tearing : : : )... It now feels like I was stitched up too much. Does anyone have any idea whether thats something that is supposed to stretch out or is it something that would need to be surgically fixed?

I had this problem with my first, and I 100% believe it's because I waited TOO LONG to have sex. The next two I started less than two weeks after birth and NEVER had that problem again.
Dryness is a HUGE issue, you can't get away with a dab of lube you have to use a LOT. I highly, highly, highly recommend Probe light (or thick, depending on preference). It's very "realistic".
Also if you've had a painful attempt before you will unconsciously "Close up" (hitting a wall). Try taking a valerian root capsule or two about a half hour or more before you intend to try and have sex, it'll help you relax a little bit.
