ok...well I feel better. Not good, but better. My dr was very oh no big deal about it, which made me feel better because more than the pain I was just scared. She cauterized it back together. SUPER UNPLEASANT, then put more steristrips on the one side(the other was sealed enough she thought--and nessa they did put some on when they took out the staples, but they tell you to remove them after a week). She didnt think it looked infected, but gave me some preventive antibiotics because an infection could make this minor issue serious. She also refilled my pain pills so Im not miserable. She said in a week it should be a lot better and shouldnt take any extra time to heal. Hopefully shes right. It still looks pretty awful but its closed up at least so Im not completely freaked out. She said it was caused by scar tissue from my other c sections, which causes poor blood flow to the area which causes crappy healing. I dont mind having c sections since I didnt have another option to safely have babies, but its a big bummer these are the prices I have to pay to have a big family because of it. Im just hopeing to see big improvements every day now like I should have been seeing already. ali--wow thats terrible! What kind of record keeping are they doing that they dont know where your baby was or how long you were in the hospital!! mel--dont forget you can always lay him down and take your 10 mins even without bf there to help. Youll do great, and if you need to vent we are all here to listen. Waylon is such a good baby. I seriously can not believe I could get lucky 3 times and have easy happy babies. He is bfing great, sleeping OK at night-4-5 hour stretchs, and is alert and happy when awake. Hopefully I dont jinx myself. lol. Now if I could just heal so I can enjoy all my boys again.
