Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

i think i may be crazy.. ive wanted to dtd since the first week we brought logan home but because of my stitches i didnt say anything (i only had 6). well im down to 1 stitch left and it's only been 3.5 weeks pp. i really want to dtd, and in all honesty i wouldnt mind getting pregnant again right away either (dp feels totally different about that). im still bleeding but it isnt that heavy unless i exercise or something. is this normal? do you think its safe to dtd now?

I hate to say this but it's def advisable to wait. Even after stitches come out you still need more time to heal. Any bleeding means your body isn't ready and isn't healed.

Also while I can understand wanting to get pregnant right away your body really needs time to recover.

Is it possible you could satisfy your libido with external aids only :oops:

Congrats on your LO

If you are still bleeding that means your body has not healed yet and your risk for infection is still pretty high, plus still having a stitch means that externally you aren't even healed. I would definitely wait on getting busy.

PS, From looking at your siggie, you should really consider letting your body heal and rest before getting pregnant again, pre-e is no joke.
