    Ten days with Alex, and seventeen with Ned. Was longer with Ned because I got a nasty case of thrush after some major antibiotics and anti-viral drugs on Day 3 postpartum, so was on doctor's orders to wait an extra week.

    Mine were both c/s though.

    Wow I think it would have been close to 3 months after having the girls.After pushing out 2 babies I was'nt too eager to DTD

    We waited until the end of the second week, mainly because we were apart all that week though. I had a c-s, I don't think I would have dtd that soon otherwise.

    Well it's been almost four months for us, and I'm only just beginning to contemplate it! My episiotomy has taken ages to heal, with granuloma removal and silver nitrate etc so I haven't been brave enough. Think I might go there soon though, DH is getting quite toey! I think I just want to get it over and done with now, and know if it's going to hurt or not, but I really have no interest in DTD itself. I feel like a bad wife!

    AAAAGGGGEESSSS!

    We tried at about 6wks but there was no way I was going there just not interested and not comfortable. Took us ages and ages before it was comfortable I found that BF sucked all spare moisture out of my body and there was none left for down there!

    If I remember rightly it was only recently that I got my vagina back and I was so excited I posted about it in my belly buddies!

    I can't actually remember when we did, I think i've been supressing the memory LOL. I think it was around 5 weeks with both, both were c-section and I remember it hurt around my scar pretty bad even though DH was pretty gentle. I also remember being uncomfortable and not too sexy because my boobs were leaking the whole time hehe.
    Poor guy only get some once a month if that when i'm pregnant too, i get too uncomfortable

    It took a while for my stitches to go away, I think they dissapeared at around 5 weeks. We didn't have very successful sex until about 8 weeks after bubs birth. We did however have, well, sex, just not vaginal . . .

    It's been 2 weeks since my sons birth no stitches or tears. My husband is already asking to try and i'm scared it will hurt. I've still got a bit of pain and tenderness down below, i need to forget the pain i went through first before he goes near me. I want to dtd and since the last 8 weeks of my pregnancy it was very uncomfortable so i want it all to go back to what it was beforehand.
