plus i dont think i could quit smoking, i mean i "could" but i dont want to
Really? Lol of COURSE they sew you back up. Sorry, not trying to be sarcastic but... Can you imagine if they just created an open wound and left it?

I had an episiotomy. Quick local anesthetic, snip, out she slid, two stitches (for me not nessecarily for everyone) and ta da. My uterus hurt more than the episiotomy did after the fact. Does it change the way it looks? I don't know, can't see it and hubby hasn't mentioned it.

Hubby hadn't complained that it feels any different and certainly hasn't put any damper on our sex life. So I'd venture to say all is good in that region

For me it was usually between 2-4 stitches if I remember correctly.

my smallest tear was that many stitches. The largest lets go double digits.

Same here. That was the one major thing I was always utterly terrified of happening.

In reality, I didn't even feel it. I didn't even know I had torn until after they sewed me up and told me. The second time it was a really really big tear.

A couple weeks later when going in for a followup appointment, the midwife was checking things out and I asked her how it was healing. She looked really baffled (it's a team of midwives and she wasn't there), and said that she couldn't even tell that I had torn so it must have healed up well. Everything seems normal anyway.

It didn't hurt afterward either. It just feels achy and bruised, but apparently it feels like that even if you don't tear.

Nicole I hope everything goes smoothly! We're thinking of you over here.

I know plenty of moms who have "fine ass bodies". I mean if you don't want kids then please, don't have them but please don't act like mothers are a bunch of ugly body women with gigantic vaginas.

Thank you

and if one's husband or boyfriend has an issue with the idea of some scar tissue, well, that would tell you a lot about him and none of it would be good
