    *I did want to ask if anyone had to have an episiotomy and how their healing process went. Im about 10 days past the delivery and Im still not healed down there. Im worried b/c you can see the stitches but the dr. said over time the skin will heal together. I feel very limited b/c he recommended me not sitting upright for longer than 2hours. Also did anyone else experience some mild prolapse b/c of their pregnancy & delivery? My bladder isnt doing to well holding up right now. Again Im hoping that because its still early it might go back to where its suppose to be. For now I am doing what I can to rest, and loving on my precious baby. =)
    Congratulations! For the episiotomy -- try a wet, warm compress or a warm bath. The stitches are disolvable and they can tighten up and get sore. Bath & compress are a big help. The bladder takes a bit -- as does everything else -- to get back to normal. It takes a while for your body to get everything back to where it belongs after pregnancy.

    You have the right attitude! Enjoy the baby -- time goes by so quickly and there is little better in this world than cuddling up with an infant. Hugs to all.

    I have only have C-sections, too so I don't know about things like that. But no bath before it has gone six weeks. Here we use medical green soap from the farmacy and wash with that after the delievery.
