My appt today

So, it ended up good. BP was 121/80. I've lost a crap ton of weight. She looked at my incision which I just KNEW was infected (last night I had gross stuff coming from it) and she said it's not, but I have a hematoma under the skin. I saw the MW, so she called in the doctor and she examined it and said that either - I'll absorb it on my own OR the skin will break open and I'll "ooze" it out. Which is gross. She put me on antibiotics because she said it could get infected either way. She upped my dose of Zoloft, so maybe I can stop being sad... Smile

Sorry you're hhaving trouble with your incision, as if recovery isn't hard enough. I hope the meds have you feeling good soon. You deserve it!

Sorry about your incision. That sounds like a pain. I hope you heal up well now that you're on antibiotics. Also I hope that you start feeling better now that your meds have been adjusted. I agree with Joan, you deserve to feel good, not sad. Smile

I had my appt today too. It went okay. Actually no, i dont feel like putting on the "I'm fine" face. At the risk of way too much tmi, apparently I have "pelvic relaxation". You can google it. The doctor thinks that I got a big rip in my muscle during birth, so I'm going to try kegels for a while, and if that doesn't help then I can consider surgery if its bothering me. This is the first time I've felt really down about my post baby body, but for some reason this hit me kind of hard, like my whole body is just a hot mess and I don't know how DH is ever going to be attracted to me again. I know that's irrational, but that's how I'm feeling today. Blech.

I hope the up in meds helps a little bit, girl! It's no fun to be in the dumps when you have such a sweet face to admire every day! And I'm not talking about your DH. :biglaugh:

Here's hoping you won't get an infection!! Never had a C/S but they can be complicated themselves.. let alone with an infection.

Congrats on the weight loss!! Whatever it takes, right? Lol

Hugs, Alissa. It's hard dealing with the aftermath of all this. My first kid barely did any damage, but Ifeel llike this time, my body was wrecked. I hope the kegels help. Sad
