Oh man...those first few days, I lived on that sitz :chuckle Heck, I even had to nurse the little bugger sitting on that because I thought I was splitting into two pieces! I had 2 epis' and then she got caught up in the cord and the doc had to yank her out...nice lowwww heart rate! As my DH put it...Man was that ugly!
4th degree plus..up and down! Good thing I had that epidural in!
I am not a wimp by any means, but let me tell you...MSO4 would have been mighty fine :chuckle Home on Percocets...Motrin just didn't cut it!
No donut...ice x 24hours (nothing like walking around like you have a load in your drawers
), then the nice sitz bath. We also use tucks and dermaplast spray...I loved that spray! And Colace, colace and juice, juice. That first BM is like giving birth to an elephant :uhoh21:
