Did you wait the full 6 weeks? adult content

I am 3 weeks and 5 days PP and I just couldn't handle keeping my hands off my Fiance! We gave in at 2 1/2 weeks. I had a c-section and was feeling great, and haven't had any problems.

Did you wait the full 6 weeks after you had your kids?

  • Nope, couldn't wait! Our daughter is 5 weeks old, & we first had intercourse again around 2&1/2 weeks after she was born. I probably would have done it a little sooner, but I had my tubes tied too & was super sore for about a week & 1/2. If it wasn't for my visitor coming & lingering around for the last week, we'd be at it again! LOL My 6 week check-up is tomorrow.

  • nope three days...I know I know but I couldnt stand it ...I was in the hospital for 6 weeks before actually having D so I was not waiting any longer...

  • So technically you DID wait 6 weeks, just not the right 6 weeks. Lol. More power to you, I couldn't wait that long!

  • Yes. my daughter ripped me almost completely open from vagina to rectum. It was the worst rip my CNM had ever seen to the point that she asked me if I minded the on call OBGYN stitching me up instead of her. The funny thing is that I had pain every time we had sex before I gave birth and expected it to stop after since, well you can't get much more stretched than childbirth right? They sewed me up so well that I was tighter after and it hurt worse! 5 years later and my dh usually doesn't rip me anymore so it usually doesn't hurt...and wow sorry for the TMI LOL
    Bottom line, Yes, we both wanted to wait the full 6 weeks. My CNM said it would be dangerous for us not to and quite frankly I wouldn't've had the energy before then anyway. DH even said after we had the all clear that he would wait until I felt ready 'cause he is awesome like that :)

  • Be very careful, you are very fertile and that's why some many kids are so close together.

  • Yes. I tore pretty bad and had quite a few stitches. Sex was the last thing on my mind. Even at 6 weeks I wasn't feeling up to it.
