The day finally came! I pooped! I gave birth 6 days ago and did not poop until today. The days up until this date has been brutal. I've been eating normally as well so I have no idea where all of that food is stored in my body. With the stitches down there and my nipples hurting from breastfeeding, this third problem made the last several days really uncomfortable.

So for those who has never given birth before, consider this a warning that you may not be able to poop for awhile! Fortunately, when the I finally did the deed, it wasn't as bad as I thought. I did get hemorrhoids from pushing during childbirth and have been applying external medicine to them so that helped. Remember to apply all of that medication they gave you at the hospital on a regular basis when you get discharged.
