I think my milk supply dropped after all the IV fluids finally ran out of me.

I'm wondering if my supply can go down because I wasn't drinking enough water?? So I've been drinking a lot trying to make up for it. She still gives me a good 5-6hr sleep at night, but during the day she's a grump! Two wks old yesterday!

So since this was my first vaginal delivery, im learning all new things! Is it normal to sometimes feel like I'm going to...fall out...down there? Seriously, i was walking around Target and it was extremely painful! I felt like i need to just stop and hold things together lol
I was pretty swollen before and after birth and 4 days pp I did way to much and I totally felt like things were falling out. I have done lots of laying down this time because of a 5 day headache( and still going) so the rest of my body feels awesome now.
