Sex :)

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.

Sex :)

Alright ladies I'm curious when everyone had sex for the first time PP? I'm already ready to try and I'm only 11 days PP. Of course I'm still bleeding so I doubt I will be, but I'm curious when you all think it's ok to start back?

I'm pretty sure most doctors recommend waiting 6 weeks. I was ready right away even with a c-section...hubby just looks so sexy carrying for our baby lol!

I'd be careful. While I know there are women who do it earlier, there can also be complications. For me, we tried 3 weeks PP. Stitches were gone, went easy, and the area that was stitched ripped open slightly. To this day I still feel pain when there is pressure there or (yes being blatant here) when DH's ween hits the skin before going in. That hurts so bad! In hindsight I wish I would have waited, but again that's just me.

GL with whatever you decide!

We waited six weeks until we got the all clear from the OB. I wasn't taking any chances. :)

Yoww! Sounds painful. Well I go for my PP check up at 4 weeks so I'm sure he'll give me the go ahead then, I dot want to disturb the healing process anyway....I think I'll wait lol.

Me too! Plus I got my first PPAF right before that despite EBF. Sucky! I did and still do NOT want to be pregnant again for at least another year! Plus my sex drive is in the tank due to BFing hormones. Sigh...
