I have 1 left I think.

I was given a leaflet when I was discharged from hospital which said it could be up to 5 weeks.

Mine took around 4/5 weeks! Trust me once its over, you will feel so much better! Try soaking in the bath with lavender oil! Sounds impossible with a new born baby but if you have someone to help you just for a little while then it will help a lot as it helps your stitches dissolve quicker whereas a shower doesn't xx

I have the same problem I can feel them poking me, oh the fun lol

So hopefully only another two weeks, I might try the bath and see if that speeds things up.
