  • I think it was day 2 or 3. They had been giving me stool softeners so it wasn't as bad as I expected but let's just say I went to the bathroom very carefully. I actually bought some stool softener to take for about a week after I was home because it was still very sensitive and sore in that region.

  • With my first (vaginal delivery) I didn't go until my first day back home.. which was 2 days later. With my son (c section) I went in the hospital on day 2 with the help of a suppository
