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.

Finally used a mirror and looked

Postby meg1492 » Fri Feb 26, 2010 5:27 am

Between my legs.

When do things close up? Because right now I can plainly see my urethra without moving anything and also it seems like my vaginal opening is still open a bit.

When does this change? Or does it not change after childbirth?

I can't remember when it happens but at 5 months mine is "closed up" It doesn't exactly look the same but I guess we pry can't expect it to. It doesn't look ugly though lol

OO I'm not worried about the insides or sex..I think that will be fine. LOL Kegals work magic. ;)

More just wondering what the standard is for no longer being able to clearly see your urethra. Like is it 6 weeks, 5 months? Somewhere in between? Who has BTDT?

Come now..I can't be the only one who has used a mirror and checked things out! LOL

You're not alone, I peeked too lol. Although it was 3 days after I had Gabe and it was semi traumatizing. 8O

DH wanted to see a few weeks ago so I showed him and he said everything looked like before, so I guess it went back to normal. Can't tell you when that happened though.

FYI
I have had 4 vaginal del and now preg with #5 I think it was after #3 that everything shifted down lol I can look in a mirror now and clearly see it all lol It hasnt affected sex the only thing I notice is it can be tricky to get a tampon in sometimes(dont have to worry about that again for awhile lol) My dr explained it as gravity lol and I do the kegals.

I tore a TINY bit and got like 4 stitches...and when I looked down there at about a week pp, I noticed that the stitches made the opening way smaller than it was before. So for me....I'm basically a virgin again. 8O
