Being pregnant for so long made me forget about the actual recovery process after having my son. All of a sudden reality hit and the pain set in once the epidural (no judging) wore off!
Simple things like using the restroom or even just standing up was not comfortable. Recovery took me almost 3 months. And the worst part was having to use the restroom. I remember feeling like a water fall with no control or knowledge of when it was ending.
There are a lot of details that you may not ask or didn’t ask after your first child! Try and ask as many questions as you can and know that recovery will take a while.
When did you start to feel better after having your baby?
