I think 3-4 days.... just take them stool softeners!!
With both of my kids it took up to 48 hours. Plus the hospital wont let you leave unless u have a bowel movement.
The next day. Both times for me I had one within 24hrs. After a while I told them I didn't want the stool softeners anymore cause I went about 3 times in the hospital. Didn't want it to hit me on the long way home lol
Took me almost 3 days with my first, and I think almost 2 with my second, but I had c-sections if that mmakes a difference.
I had mine when i pushed her out kinda embarrassing but part of being in labor I guess lol
3 days for me....take the stool softeners!
I had one a few hours after birth.
Is it really painful when you poop after birth? Just curious.
Nope it isnt painful..i was given a semi liquid diet so not painful. i had a csection.. and i had my first bowel movement 2 days later. my below the waist senses from spinal anaethesia returned to normal after a day. And i was mostly on glucose drips..
I had an enema before delivering my son I think it was at least a couple days before I had a BM. I never took anything to soften the stool and I was fine
I don't remember how long it took, but it definitely hurt for me after both kids. It doesn't help that I also tore with both of them, so the pressure in that area made it uncomfortable.
I gave birth on Thursday by c-section and still haven't had a BM yet. I'm waiting and they are giving me stool softeners twice a day here in the hospital.
I gave birth Thursday afternoon and they gave me a stool softener that night and Friday night both and I had a BM early Friday morning or early Saturday morning.
2 weeks. It was one of the worst experiences in my life. I almost went to the hospital. Not te young to be gross but it was HUGE. But I got it out by myself. Just make sure to take lots of collage and drink lots of water along with fiber!!
Ok I am concerned about the BM after delivery too. I know it has to happen to go home. Has anyone had extreme constipation before labor (particularly a c-section) and internal hemorrhoids, and been able to go in the first couple days after delivery? I'm afraid I am psyching myself out.
When I had my son they let me go home the next day. I never did anything but pee at the hospital. I never had an urge to either. I had to get cut so I didn't until I was home for three days after my areas were feeling a bit better. I cannot use the bathroom unless I'm comfortable and that's not going to happen at a hospital LOL Good luck girl!
Lucky! Ok maybe not the episiotomy part (ouch)... But going home without having to go.
