About this blog

If you're looking for me to brag about how cute my kids are (which they are) or talk about how much weight I did or didn't lose this week, you are in the wrong place! I have a Facebook account for that. This blog is about the blunt truths of parenting, tips and tricks of the trade, some addicting mommy junk and all the other disgusting hilarity that ensues when you have kids...especially two kids only 12 months apart like myself.

Random Rants: Stiches from childbirth

Even though many people warned me of some of the down side to having new babies, no one told me how ITCHY the stitches healing "down there" would be!!!

Now, I had heard everything from "its better to tear than get an episiotomy" to "you'll be so sleep deprived"...no one ever told me about how terribly itchy I would be if I needed stitches!

Boo was Edward Scissor Head and tore me four terrible directions. Recovering was itchy hell until all four 2 inches stitches fell out...about six weeks after he was born. Thank god I didn't need any stitches with Bubbi! Healing was a breeze.

So mommies to be....plan on being VERY F-ING ITCHY if you need a butt load of stitches like I did. Just a friendly heads up! Supposedly hemorrhoid pads (yes, on your bruised and beaten vag) can help, but no one told me so I just suffered.

Good luck with that one ladies!

Mine was an emergency C-sect. Itchy versus pain...i think itchy is better. Now my son is 3 yrs old and the "wound"would still feel itchy or occassionally pain. The Doctor said coz the muscle did not join back properly

Did u do anything to flattern ur tummy after pregnancy ? Coz some women look 5/6 months pregnant even a year after their pregnancy .

Small Kucing - My MIL says hers still feels odd even 30 years later. Sorry :(

Palak - No I didn't do anything in particular. Just regular cardio, yoga etc once I was given the ok by my doctor
