I was on "pelvic rest" aka "nothing in the vagina" from 18 weeks on because I had been leaking fluid so about a week before me 6 wk my husband was growing pretty impatient. lol! and it was uncomfortable, but I'm not sure if it was the incision or just because it had been sooo long.

we had sex 8 days after my c section but my doctor said she was actually envious of how fast i was healing while i was still in the hospital! they took my staples out when he was only 3 days old. i was so worried something would go wrong but i just had to do it lol. anyways everything seems fine for me. we just waited til after i had stopped bleeding.

I am only 2.5 weeks out and I am going to wait until my appt at 5 weeks to see what my doctor says haha I am way too paranoid to have sex until then and so is my husband. I think it is all really how you feel about it and how comfortable you are.

Thank you very much for you responses ladies. I go to the doctor this Thursday, so hopefully he says all is okay. I obviously want to pick back up, but honestly a little bit afraid of what could happen with the incision and such. I got my staples out a week later, and have felt perfectly fine since, so I think it would be okay. Thanks again!
