  • It feels pretty much normal. With my first, I got loads of stitches, so it burned where some pee hit the stitches. Other than that, it felt like regular pee. With my second, I didn't have any stitches and my pee felt totally normal.

  • The first pee was a bit hard after they took out the tube....and it is different if you have a c-sec or natural. I had both. After natural, with 1 stitch, it was fine. Like someone else said it was harder to poop (actually, scarier, not harder). After c-sec it was a bit hard, but more like I could not get the muscles working than burning or anything. The nurses are usually pretty good- they tell you to run the water and take your time.

  • i didnt have a prob with the peeing it was actually weird feeling because of them removing the tube but other than that it was fine nothing to worry about anyway you will be fine trust me once you see and hold your baby it will be the farthest thing from your mind lol

  • Hhhm, I've never had a yeast infection but I have had Urinary Tract Infections before.
    After my first, which was a c-section and I had a catheter, it did burn a bit to pee the first time but no big deal really.
    After I had a few more babies, all vaginally, I never had any issues with peeing.
    I think that if you have a catheter (with an Epidural or a c-section) you might have a burning sensation but if you go natural, no drugs and have little to no tearing, it wont hurt at all to pee.
