An interesting thing, and potential warning

Because I don't know if you've ever had this particular issue post partum, but if you haven't, it can be rather alarming.

While in the hospital, 2 OBs from my office checked me and both said "Oh, you have a little bruising and swelling down here, but that will go away." and I didn't really think much of bruising or swelling when I have a big slit across my belly, KWIM?

Well there is a reason they don't have full length mirrors in the hospital (aside from the fact that your body looks like it's been in a damn train wreck. DH had me laughing so hard I thought I was going to bust a stitch, and had tears running down my face. He kept calling me Nat Geo because my poor tits were huge and veinous and my goddamn nipples are pointed straight at the ground, coupled with the deflated balloon tummy, I am quite a sight).

ANYWAY. So I get home and one of the first things I do of course is take a real shower. Which entails getting naked. And try as I might to not look in the mirror, I did Click here to enlarge.

It looked like a fucking trucker in steel toed boots had kicked me in the pussy. Click here to enlarge I swear, my poor pubis was dark purple and looked like I had fucking elephantitis of the crotch. PLUS of course I was mostly shaved for surgery. It was just HORRIFYING. Click here to enlarge I did not have that particular issue with my others and was really not expecting "some bruising and swelling" to mean a freaking eggplant between my legs. Click here to enlarge

I went to see my friend after her C-section (baby #6). I think they were still pumping her full of morphine because she showed me her incision etc. before I could say no thank you. I love her to death, but Click here to enlarge

I'm so glad you are feeling better.

My biggest fear is that there is no PMS and that this is my personality.

Trust me, after the baby comes out, you completely forget to look at your crotch. I highly recommend watching.



I'm sorry about your eggplant! I remember checking out my episiotomy stitches after my first was born because I was afraid I'd popped one. I had, and even though it's been 12 years, I am STILL traumatized by the memory. Click here to enlarge
