scottishmommy, your comment has really helped me. :) since i read it, i made a decision to stop mentally obsessing over this and focus on my babies instead, which is exactly where my emotional energy should be directed toward anyway at this time. thanks for the resources and the encouragement! i really appreciate it.
YES! Well said. It's amazing how much better I feel about myself after changing my attitude about the situation. I actually found myself "thanking" my vagina for doing such a kick-ass job during birth, instead of being upset at it for not looking perfect. hehe
You guys are awesome. I just came here to look for help for my prolapse. I'm 10 months pp with my second babe. Both were over 8 pounds. After the first my bladder was a bit prolapsed. This time it is hanging out of my vag looking like a crowning babe, and my gyn says my uterus is falling too. Yikes!!!
Will check out everything suggested above. Many thanks and best wishes all!!!
The other thing to remember is that your hormone levels are different if you are nursing, and your vaginal walls may be thinner than when you are not nursing or pregnant. Some of the sensation of bulging might simply be that nerves that are normally more buffered by tissue are closer to the surface, so the walls feel closer together than what your mental body map is accustomed to perceiving as 'normal.' Nothing is set forever down there, especially not at 6 weeks pp.
