I think I would suck at bedrest too. So sorry you are stuck twiddling your thumbs.

First, congratulations! she's beautiful. i sucked at bed rest too but it makes a lot of difference... enjoy the early time with her

I thought I was the only one. I had to search for pages and pages on Google to find someone that mentioned this complication.

They had tied up a nerve inside the stitches. The med student who was practicing his closing did, anyway. Every time I moved it was a horrible lightening bolt of pain. I had a c-section with my first too, but I never, ever felt anything like that pain. I had trouble making it to the bathroom (and often didn't) because the when the pain hit, I somehow lost bladder control. Percocet did nothing, and I too was told "Just rest, you're overdoing it". Walking to the bathroom after lying in bed for hours was apparently too much.

Actually, the problem was the damaged nerve was one that was associated with my bladder. Yippee.

Anyway, one day the dissolving stitches finally dissolved, or something, and the pain was gone. Just like that.

I don't know if this is what you have, but if it is, know that it gets better.

It must be impossible to be a couch potato with 2 young girls on your heels! I hope you are feeling up to getting around and no consequences of doing so!!

OMG, you're doing such a good job being a couch potato that you haven't posted in a million years!!!
