I had my 35weeker (6lb 14oz) on the 5th November and got 2nd degree tears. Needed emergency forceps and stitches are healing and only hurt first thing in a morning like a hedgehog is on my moo moo till I get moving. It's just bowel movement which I dread to go and do the pain is horrid. Feels like the stitches are going to burst! Just wondering when do they start getting better and pooing seems normal again?
