  • Congrats!!!! Oh god I would get cramps as bad as the labor concractions when I nursed after having my 2nd dd. I asked for pain meds because it hurt so bad like a second wind of labor. Ask for some stronger pain meds if you can't sleep, you deff need to sleep!

  • It is just your body trying to get rid of things and get back to normal. It can be very painful.

  • No pane after birth is like the actual delivery labor pain.

  • those pains can last for quite a while, especially if you breast feed. they will ease up some over time but i had them for 4 weeks with one of mine.
