Lucky me has a new pain to deal with. It started late Tuesday and it pretty much means I can't stand up without excruciating pain on my lady bits. Sitting hurts too. I can't even stand long enough to change M 's diaper. It feels muscular and the only thing that takes the edge off is an ice pack. Why is this happening TWO weeks later? I finally have energy and was going to take a short trip to the store this week, but that's not happening now. Thoughts?
This is seriously depressing.
I had a new pain start too! Mines slightly different...I told DH its almost like a kidney stone? When I stand up (or am already standing) I get a feeling like Im going to pee something out (I cant think of another way to describe it). after a min or two it goes away.
I hope you get some relief soon! Esp so you can get out and not be going crazy stuck at home!
So the midwife was here today. She checked my lady bits and said all looked good. The episiotomy is healing fine, no visible infection. She figures it's just muscle trauma and that I should just take it easy, do my kegels and wait it out. Oh joy...
I spent all day in bed today resting as DD was in daycare. I came downstairs before the midwife came...I've been down here sitting for 3 hours and I'm not in much pain! YES! I'm sure the pain is still coming...
I had that pain too! I had to muscle through it bc my dh is not as helpful as yours lol, tho he did change his first diaper in a year last night when dd1 needed it b4 bed and dd2 was SCREAMING at me, woo hoo progress!
..... Anyway, yeah I had that pain exactly. I thought it was hemeroids but I guess not, just ow. Glad it seems better now,
I remember the nurse suggesting I spray a pad with water and put it in the freezer to help with the pain.
