Hi I had a c section and my kid is now 19 mnth old. My breast size has reduced several sizes after breastfeeding. I have done tonnes of PT exercises, got bra fittings done, tried everything but i still have upper back pain. any tricks or tips from fellow sufferers?
I went from 165 before pregnancy to 230 while pregnant ...I gained so much weight with my twins and I can’t lose it. I’ve tried dieting and I can’t really exercise because I have no one to watch my girls. The gyms that offer child care are out of my budget. I want to do at home workouts but my daughters are alway at my side ... I can’t remember showering or using the bathroom without one of t... More
I had my second c-section almost 3 weeks ago and I am feeling much better than after the first one. I have a 16 month old that weighs about 21 pounds. We are both suffering because I was told not to lift anything heavier than the new baby. I don’t want to tear or hurt myself but I just can’t wait to have my baby in my arms again. Does anyone know exercises that might help to gain back strength?
I've been doing great, I feel like. Throwing a newborn into your life and everything is completely different. We have hit the 6 month stage, which has been amazing. Her personality has kicked in, she's learned to sit up and army crawl. But I think, personally, maybe I'm not doing so well. Tired, obviously. I have no desire to do anything, hang out with friends or family, clean, find... More
I’m nearly 7 month PP and have had multiple nightmares reliving my traumatic birth of my son and scary hospital trip a month before he was born. I used to get them once in a while, but now it’s every time I go to sleep.. bed time and naps. Every. Single. Night. I wake up crying every time and if my son is crying too I freak out and can’t even pick him up without calming myself down first. I can... More
Any ladies having trouble feeling like themselves after baby and/or breastfeeding? I’m pretty petite (4’11”) and my pregnancy was quite difficult due to the size of my baby (born at almost 10 pounds). Then I breastfed for 1 year and now I’m really having a hard time feeling like my ol’ self..I’m assuming I’m not the only one?
I just had my 2nd child 4 months ago. I am currently on the mini pill because I’m exclusively pumping. I did well with that birth control after I had my first child so I decided to just be on that again. I got my first period in August then mid September I had a little slip up and forgot to take my pill so I had to double up that day ..I got really nervous because husband and I had intercourse ...

My sister in law had a very traumatic birth, plus she’s home by herself almost all day in a small apartment with baby... she expressed some thing’s to her mom (my MIL) that just made it obvious to me that she’s suffering with PPD. Getting counseling or even talking about things like depression are not common in their culture, so I’m not sure how to help. When I ask her how she is, she says she’... More
I had a really traumatic birth with my first and had to have an emergency c section. Everything that could of went wrong did and I’m terrified it will happen again. I’m pregnant again and have a c section scheduled for may 13th. Its giving me so much anxiety and keeping me up at night. I’m terrified! Was your second c section any better? Does that fear go away? I’ve talked to my doctor about it... More
So I’ve had terrible back pain for the past 3 month. It’s very hard to move even just sitting down or standing up is a struggle. It makes me want to be very lazy and it doesn’t really work because my son will be a year nov. 5 and has been walking and getting into everything. I try my hardest but it’s so hard to get out of bed every morning. Could this be ppd? Or depression from my back pain? Wh... More
My sister is 3 weeks postpartum and she wants to have sexual intercourse and doesn’t want to wait anymore. I told her she already waited this long and if she can wait a few more weeks it’ll be worth it because she NEEDS to heal. She won’t listen to me though and I’m pretty sure she’s going to do it anyways. So have any of you had sexual intercourse before the 6 week mark??
I’m trying to get excited about baby #2 but I’m having a hard time. It wasn’t a planned thing and it was so hard to get pregnant with our first (lots of fertility issues) so every moment was so special. I just still can’t wrap my head around another baby and how hard 2 will be. I feel bad but I just can’t seem to get excited even through everyone around me is. I feel bad I don’t feel way that w...

So my son is 8 months old, I had periods after I had him pretty regularly but then all the sudden about 3 or 4 months ago my periods stopped. Just nothing, and I’m not pregnant. I keep taking tests to see if i am and they all come up negative. I quit taking my birth control right before my periods stopped because my husband and I wanted to get pregnant again. Is this normal? Could this just be ... More
