So over the past three days I've been feeling better and we have had a little outing each day. One night we drove around looking at Christmas lights, took the baby to our jobs to show her off, to my grandparents house, and went to a post partum counseling appointment. All things I can do sitting down and without much walking or strain. All my stitches were feeling okay and while my anemia is still bad I felt like I had enough energy to be up.
Well I guess I overdid it. Yesterday on the drive home I started to feel uncomfortable and thought I might actually be leaking over my pad. Got inside and discovered (TMI warning...) I had soaked through a heavy pad, my underwear, my pants, and it was still coming!! I hopped in the bath and it didn't stop. We paged ,y midwife and she gave me five more minutes for it to stop before she would have sent me to the ER. Well thankfully it did slow and I didn't have to go. But now I am back in bed and not allowed to get up and walk around a bunch or carry her or lift anything etc etc. I'm so discourages, just when I thought I was on the mend. I'm really weak today again after losing all that blood too. I just want to be normal again!!
