Well I just had my baby So I guess it's time to upgrade to this group. My first question when did the swelling go down after you had your baby? I swear it almost looks like I have balls and I feel more like I have a head between my legs now than I did in labor.

The swelling was gone in two weeks...I was very active after having birth probably would of been gone sooner if I could rest more.

Congratulations! Did you have a boy or girl?

As far as the swelling goes, try to take it easy as much as possible and don't forget your sitz baths. Give your body time to heal.
