    A week or so as far as i can remember, when getting up and sitting down ect it hurts for a little longer. I had a cough as well so everytime i coughed it felt like the world was going to fall out my foof! It will feel like you have just given birth again if you push yourself too far! I walked to my mums after about a week and i was in agony when i got there! Its only a 5min walk!

    If you only had a slight tear and a couple of stitches, then you should feel better in a couple of weeks. If you had a large episiotomy, then 4-6 weeks.

    I had an episiotomy and ventouse, everything was fine and dandy if i was sat still, but standin up & sitting down were hellish for about 1/2 weeks. I took walks from day 3 onwards and it was horrendous at first, felt like my internal organs were gonna slide out through my fooflar, but eventually it just eased. Probably after 3 weeks i started to feel stronger, though long walks werent manageable until week 5ish, just a weird dragging feeling until then. Hope it eases soon, still VERY early days for you yet so dont worry. oh yeah, and CONGRATULATIONS. xxx
