Too much pain to sit

Postby JulesC » Thu Oct 12, 2017 4:49 am

Hello. I just had my baby boy four days ago and i got stitched up down there. But up to today it's very painful for me to sit down or get out of the chair. And also my lower abdomen still hurts I have trouble moving sometimes. Is this normal?

I believe so. The uterus is still contracting as it shrinks and moves back to it's pre pregnancy spot. For some, the 10-14 days after birth can have painful contractions.
You also received stitches so it will probably be swollen and tender down there for several days. If you have one, a cold pack pad is a great relief in such cases as are sitz baths.
Congratulations on your new baby!
