Ironically enough, I had no tearing despite my large baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> BUT...I am super sore. It will be one week tomorrow, but I don't feel better. I actually felt better the first day and a half than I do now. On her second day I spent a lot of time sitting, and I think I irritated things. Parts of my labia toward my back are so swollen and sore, it hurts to walk too much or sit wrong. It burns to pee (and did not the first day). I iced it a little last night. This just seems crazy to be so sore and raw without needing any repairs...never had this with the first two, and only had a minor skidmark with each of them. Any ideas? The herbal sitz bath I have burns.
