  • Hemmorhoids! Going #2 again was awful, terrible! I took stool softeners for six weeks and still didn't have an easy time going, ugh.

  • The only problem I had was a hematoma (swollen blood vessel) on my vulva. I didn't know it was there until the pain pills they gave me were gone and I was still too sore to sit down. That was the only reason I was taking them! One small outpatient surgery and I was good to go. Other that that, I was gravy. I was walking around the afternoon after my 1st was born. The next morning with my 2nd. But I was up alllll night in labor with him, so I was tired. No problems.

  • I had a bunch of small surface tears that were stitched and they hurt, but I sat on a boppy and it helped. Other than that, nothing. :)
