So we had another midwife visit today and Paige got weighed again and now at 11days old she is 3oz above her birth weight so weighs 8lb 9oz the little chunk!!
The midwife also asked if I wanted my stitches checking. I agreed and I'm so glad I did!! They have completely come apart and I have what looks like the beginning of an infection. Just when I thought I was healing and the pain was getting better I find out I'm not doing so well. I'm now on tablets for the infection and when that is gone they will look at me again and possibly restitch me, I have a 2nd degree tear. I must admit when the midwife left I took a little look myself and to be honest I can see the "hole" which isn't meant to be there but I don't think it looks that bad. Obviously I want it fixed but the thought of having that pain again is horrible. I know it will be worth it to have everything sorted out but the first lot of stitches hurt so much!!
I guess all I can do for now is wait for this infection to go and see what they say about restitching.
I feel like I've taken 5 steps forward and another 10 back!!
Has anyone had any experience with being restitched?
Thanks for reading,
