How did you feel almost 4 weeks pp?

I'm almost 4 weeks pp and still feeling sore! I had a natural unmediated birth and pushed for 3 hours. My bleeding has pretty much stopped and my stitches have dissolved. But it still feels like I'm bruised and sore. I thought I would feel better by now. Oh and this is total TMI but is it normal for your cervix to still be extremely low? I'm worried about prolapse but I'm probably just being paranoid.

Wow, 3 hours?! Yes, I'd expect to be pretty sore in that case and it's normal for your cervix to be low like that.

After 3 hours of pushing you have a majorly traumatized "area" I would say you may not be resting enough.

Ok. I thought maybe I was just a major wimp or something was wrong.

Yes, that's normal to still feel sore and bruised. I had a pretty rough time with DS1 and I remember that it was SEVERAL weeks before the bruised feeling went away. And yes, the cervix still being low is normal too.

I hope you feel better soon, mama!

God bless!

I was really tired and sore after my labor with DD (32 hours, 3 1/2 pushing) for about 6 weeks. I just didn't feel like myself for a long time. I'd be sure to put up your feet whenever possible and HYDRATE! That really helped me PP
