I had my 6 week PP check today, and it went surprisingly well. My midwife cleared me for normal activity, excluding sex. I'm allowed to go back to work in 2 weeks, and can resume exercise as I see fit. She expressed concern about my tear not healing as well as it should, but said it looked like it was finally closing completely except for one small part. If it hasn't healed even more in 2 weeks, she'll cauterize it with a little silver nitrate(any experiences? Kinda nervous about that!).
I do have PPD, and she advised counseling in addition to medication for it, so she gave me a number of someone I could see. She also sent me down to the lab for a TSH and CBC because my hematocrit was a little low at my last visit. Hopefully, those numbers come back okay.
We also discussed birth control options. Right now, it's between Paragard(copper IUD) and Depo-Provera. Basically, I'll choose whichever my insurance will cover. My midwife suggested Depo over Paragard because of my history of heavy, painful periods. So, hopefully, my insurance will cover Depo.
