I had wicked gas after my section, and all I can say is find a way to get relief. My stomach got hard and it HURT like dickens. I was still in the hospital and my nurses were able to help me relieve the pressure.

I was still in the hospital when it happened, but I had the worst pains in my ribs & upper belly. The nurse said it was gas & to keep moving around.. I was glad it wasn't anything serious but ouch!!

i was in there too when it happened. i couldnt believe how hard my usually mushy stomach was! i walked a lot while in the hosptial. it seems like all systems digestive are back to normal.

thanks for the compliments on lily. i am going to take some more pics this weekend. she is getting even cuter i think. :)
