    Default Is it naughty.....

    To not have gone back for your (not the babies) 6 week check up after your baby was born?

    DD is 8 months now and once 6 weeks had past I never bothered to get that check done to see if my uterus was all in shape etc.

    Is it even an important check?

    DP and my Sis are both still on at me for not getting myself checked.

    Particularly my periods over the last month and a half are so out of whack and skewiff. I took a preg test and neg as of 2 days ago. But my body just a bit out of whack.

    I don't remember much about the 6 week checks, except the lectures about birth control... as if the babies were accidents, and we as adults had no idea about condoms before we paid the docs x amount for them to tell us? I'm sure they do something important... surely... maybe?

    At my six week check, my GP did a pap smear and asked if I was depressed. That's did. Barely glanced at the baby, wouldn't have examined me at all if I hadn't been due a smear. If you're this far along and you've had no issues, I'd say you're all good :-)

    I will forever be thankful for going to DD1s 6w checkup. I had a mile that changed colour during pregnancy, DF was on at me to get it checked. At my 6w checkup after the dr felt my uterus he noticed my mole and said it had to come off. It came back with pre-melanoma cells.
    Anyway, I think general checkups are good, so not necessarily the 6w checkup itself. They have only really been a general checkup for mum and bub, talking about contraception, bleeding, healing, pap smears etc.

    I don't feel so bad about it now after reading the comments. Does make me feel a bit better.

    I could probably do with an all over health check just because I never get them done. Might organise over the next few weeks and I'll tell DP to stay off my case about my overdue 6 week check!

    Lol.

    =) Thanks everyone!

    They are reasonably important if they are done properly by the health professional. They are meant to give you a pap smear, check your tear/grazing/episiotomy/c-scar, do the contraception talk, do the Edinburgh Scale to check for depression, check bubs hips (looking for hip dysplasia), listen to bubs heart (checking for murmurs), check bubs weight gain/loss, feeding issues and sleep settling issues.

    Of course, not everyone's 6 week check up is as thorough as it should be. Seeing as though you are eight months post partum, the most important item on the 6-week check up list would be your pap smear. Have you had one since bub was born? If not, book this week and have one
