  • Well, A friend of mines Brother and his wife have an 8 week old and she found out at her 6 week appt she was pregnant again. (wow right) They recommend 6 weeks. I had a c-sec (after 4 hours of pushing) we waited 8 and there was no pain other than things were a little tight.

  • With my first it was 3months had third degree tears, but i wanted to go for it right there at the hospital lol. I guess it is my hormones because with the second one I wanted sex as soon as I had her but I am going to wait until my six week is up (3 1/2 weeks to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!).

  • With my first I waited 4 weeks (dr had advised 6 weeks). I had an stitches from my Episiotomy so it hurt really bad. After that I waited 4 more weeks and it still hurt. The first few times hurt so bad, I'm surprised I ever tried again.
    With my second dd I waited 5 weeks and it was fine. A little uncomfortable at first, but nothing that caused pain like with my first.
