~We may not have it all together ♥ but together we have it all~
So im 4-1/2 weeks pp now and feel good for the most part. However i still get a feeling like achy almost whenever i stand too long or walk too long or when i "push" for poo on the toilet. How long does this feeling last? And how long does it take the stitches to dissolve?
Also my bowels are still messed up, i am still taking stool softners just to be able to go. A friend of mine is 10 weeks pp and she said she still takes stool softners and she didnt have near the tramatic delivery i did.
It's important to understand that your body needs time to heal. One thing I'm very vocal about is that we just don't talk enough about how much you need to heal after birth. I was SUPER active and strong all the way through my pregnancy, and I never expected how much recovery it would take afterwards. I was really hard on myself as a result. We're expecting to pop out our baby, snap back into our old shape, and be super-woman. Your body took 9 months to get to full term. Just delivering and changing your body status back to "not pregnant" is a HUGE change, then add a tear onto that? Time, mama, time. At LEAST plan for a "fourth trimester" if not more.
