    Get it checked but my bet is you not physically resting as much.

    Very true, a toddler makes things a little more challenging! DH is home for a month and that's helping heaps, plus DS is much more settled than DD was as a newbie so I can't complain too much. I need to make sure I take the opportunity to rest up,

    If it feels like bruising and swelling some pads soaked in witch hazel and chilled might help. I've never done it so I have no idea where to get it from or if you have to dilute it.

    I pulled a muscle internally quite badly cos I lifted my pram incorrectly into the car 6 days post partum after dd2. I was winded and in pain so badly I couldn't move for an hour. Had to get an US to rule out a hernia. OB lectured me as relaxin is still in your body in high amounts till 3mths post natal and to chill. It was hard as dd1 was only 22mths old and dh went back to work when dd2 was 2 wks old.

    Take it easy, try having hot baths if your Lochia has stopped, or hot showers/heat packs/Panadol to relieve pain.
