Welcome. I went to all of mine. You do need to go, IMO, asap. It could be anything. Let us know, okay?

I agree. Please don't ignore your own health. Your baby needs you!

 i went to mine because i knew i had ppd. you should go just to get some basic bloodwork done. ask about b vitamin. it can help alot with mood, energy, and over all feeling well.

I always went to mine even though I didn't feel up to it.  It's always a good idea to have a look over, especially after having a baby.

You should schedule one asap. No reason not to.

I went to all of mine.  I know a few people who had home births and they didn't have any appointments if nothing seemed wrong.

If you are feeling bad physcially, you should go to the doctor.  For sure.

I birth my last 3 children at home and didn't have a postpartum appointment.  I didn't feel sick though.  Those appointments are typically l ike 6 weeks after having the baby so if you're feeling since NOW, then it could be something else.
