After giving birth to dd i had stitches and a nurse gave me some ice cubes wrapped in a cloth for the swelling. but i couldnt' keep them on for long because it was freezing, so i tried to get them off but they were stuck!! I had to buzz for the nurse and say 'i have 6 icecubes stuck to my .....'- she poured luke warm water(which felt like boiling water on frozen parts) over them to get them off!!!
and it HURT like hell to pee for about 10 days after giving birth. I found this worse than labour to be honest.
and the baby blues suck - but they only last 4 or so days. but be warned- they suck!!
and i thought getting my tongue stuck on ice is bad LOL
