“At six weeks postpartum, your body is almost back to normal, you’re feeling great, and you can resume being intimate with your husband.”
Before giving birth, I believed this! I really thought 6 weeks was the magic number.
After giving birth to an 8 pound 8 ounce baby boy which resulted in a third degree tear, healing was slow! I remember waking up exactly one week after my son was born and I was hardly able to move and wanted to cry as I was getting out of bed. Thankfully, that was the worst of it and I started progressively getting better after that day but why didn’t anyone tell me that the pain would last over a week!
