    i've had the whole air bubbles thing as well im guessing its normal feels a bit odd lol as far as the discharge i think that just has to go away on its own time just if it has a foul odor i'd get it checked to rule out infection

    I found everything felt weird for a long time and still does sometimes. When I first went swimming I thought I'd suddenly started bleeding but it was the pol water moving about I could feel! I thought I'd not been stitched up properly after my episiotomy but as it all looks ok I assume that's not the case. I think our bits must just be really sensitive, perhaps some bits more exposed from all the pushing and some sensitive scar tissue all contributing to noticing things we didn't before.

    As for the discharge, mine's still pretty excessive but when I think how long I went without a period then I think it must take some time for the system to clear out and get back to normal.

    Yep....you all need to do your pelvic floor exercises a bit more to erm "tighten up":blush: as it's coz it's a bit looser that you take in more air than before....which obviously needs to come out. Nothing to do with stitches I'm afraid.

    The air bubles are from your pelvic floor being weakened. You need to do pelvic floor exercises. I got them too - I wondered what the heck was going on.
