  • take a chill pill...or a cold shower. Follow Dr.'s recommendation for the 6wks. It may be hard, but it's better not to risk infection, or irritation.

  • LOL you sounds like me. I had my little one about 2 weeks ago also. I am waiting for the whole 6 weeks because I had a second degree tear.

  • less than two weeks, I had an emergency c-section though....sorry if you have the stitches down there....I wanted to delivery naturally but we couldn't....I loved every minute of when I did get to be with my husband again! be careful though. no matter what you need to take it easy. but your body will know when it's ok to even take it slowly.

  • Take it slowly and if it hurt's, stop. I waited 6 week's the first time, and the second time it was either two or three. I had stitches, and I waited until they were gone, so it was probably three weeks.
