Did any of you have an easy natural birth and a rough postpartum? I have had four Bradley births, but the postpartum was terrible except for the last one. Five days after my first, I had a thyroid crisis and was very sick for several days. I was too weak to vacuum the carpet until she was three months old.
After my second, my immune system was low. I was sick ten days of every month for six months. I ran a fever of 102 or higher every month.
After my third, I had arthritis in my tailbone for eight months. The pain was more severe than labor.
