is it normal 2 wks after having a baby for your stitches to fall out? and how do you know if you healed right? i really do not feel i healed the way i should... it feels different the doctor office only lets me talk to the nurse and she says "it's normal" how do they know if they don't check????? i've been through this 6 other times and have never felt this way :( 

Doc said it's normal.. sometimes it happens. These are things they should tell people before they leave the hospital! That's the good news.. bad news I'm not healing like I should cause I'm over doing it :(  hard not to over do it when dealing w/ 7 kids~

Congrats on the new baby :)

I had c sections, and my stitches were out between days 3-5. I'm not sure about a vaginal birth though.

The stiches for vaginal birth dissolve don't they?

"sometimes the stitches do fall out" ... good to know now. doc said it's ok. did tell me i need to soak more and rest more. i'm healing just not as fast as i normally do cause i'm over doing it.
