I gave birth to my baby girl 5 weeks ago by c-section. I'm still getting a sharp stabbing pain on one side and still bleeding slightly. As I'm already seeing the OB next week for the 6-week check up I didn't want to bother him sooner, so thought I'd ask the mums here if this is normal. I thought I'd be back to fairly normal by now. It feels bad enough that I had to have a c-section, but this pain is really annoying! The other question I have, I hardly remember anything straight after the birth, I don't remember holding Gemma for the first time or her first breast feed. It hurts (emotionally) when I think about it. Has anyone else experienced that? I feel like the most important and wonderful experience I could have has been somewhat lost.
