  • They will check to make sure you are all healed and that your uterus is back to normal! I think I had a pap smear last time, but I was due for one. They will answer any questions you have, but I think that is about it.

  • ya same--the other thing they will do is ask if you will be going on some kind of birthcontrol and they will help u with getting all that info and stuff...

  • i agree, I had a pap smear, she checked the stiches site, talked about birth control methods, and also screened for PPD. She'll prob. allow you to resume normal activities now if there is no complications. Oh, I also got free samples for the baby as a "congrats" present! LOL
