  • HAHA...10 days! Lol I had an allll natural delivery with no tears or anything and I felt awesome right afterward. The only reason we waited that long was cause we were nervous. It didnt hurt at all.

  • I only waited about 2 weeks after my first was born.  And that was pushing it, lol.  Only reason I waited that long was because hubby knew I had stitches that wouldn't disolve for 2 weeks!  3 or 4 days after my daughter was born.  It's all up to you and what your body is doing babe.  If you don't feel comfortable or like you are ready, then don't.

  • The doctor said to wait six weeks. My hubby was more than ready at that point but my body just wasn't ready.

  • I think we waited like around 4 or 5 months to even start trying and then sex didn't really become normal again until like around 8 or 9 months. I had torn really bad and I swear my doctor sewed me back up too tight 'cause it hurt 100 times worse than when I had lost my virginity.

  • Doctor said 6 weeks, so I waited 6 weeks. I wasn't that desperate, plus I was sooooo busy with my new baby she's all I thought about.

  • i just had my first 3 months ago, and my husband and i tried around the 4 week mark, but i just wadnt ready, then again around 5... and right after i feel ready at my 6 week appt i got my period.. figures. to be honest though... it still feels tender, just on one side though. not really tender, just tighter i guess, and my husband agrees, lol... but everyones body is different

  • I had a c-section and we waited until she was about 2 1/2 weeks old and did the naughty for the first time. I needed to get over the whole boob engorgment before I even thought about doign the naughty again!

  • With my first we tried at 6 weeks and it was very painful and didn't end up happening. I would say at least 3 months and I ended up getting some horemone suppositories from my doctor which did help. With the second I was really nervous but again we tried at 6 weeks and everything was fine that time. I don't know why the first was so much worse.
