    How soon after delivery..

    Advertisements
    did you start to again? I keep having dreams about finally getting to have sex with DH again but it's only been 3 weeks and I know my stitches are still kinda healing and I need to wait for them to fully dissolve. I am feeling really good otherwise. Should I be waiting until my 6 week check up or is that just a type of guideline?

    If you didn't until after your six week app did you do other things for your SO?

    forever I had stitches both times and was terrified of anything happening down there haha. Between that and trying to figure out breastfeeding it just wasn't happening for awhile.

    I'm not even thinking about getting it on, but waiting until my 6 week appt is important to me so I can get everything down under checked out so we don't injure anything and then have to wait even longer.
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    I thought I was going to feel that way lol. I had NO sex drive at all during pregnancy and now it all came back! Which I am really glad my drive is back, but of course I have to wait until I am healed.

    A few weeks... but I had c-sections. There were no stitches in the direct vicinity of the sexual activity.

    Im surprised myself lol. I didn't think I would feel okay ever! But I am feeling really good! I am just worried that it's not fully healed and it will hurt and it will cause it not to heal right or take longer

    I wanted to so freaking bad. I dont know if it was hormones or what. The first time was 2 weeks PP. Didnt get anywhere, hurt too bad.

    Then at 5 weeks PP it was awesome, and now at 8 weeks PP it hurts again. To the point where we have to stop.

    The first time I was feeling really good and excited to have my body back. It was dumb of us to do it, and I hurt for a couple days after.


    All I can say is lube. Seriously, if you are going to do it, use lube. A lot.

    DH wanted to wait the 6 weeks so that's what we did.

    But no, we didn't do anything else before the 6 weeks. That would just lead to sex
