tearing and periods after birth

we welcomed our little girl Chloe to the world on the 2nd Nov, I was induced in the end as was in so much pain in my pelvis, her due date was the 6th.
before we got to the 1st when i went in i kept starting labour and it kept stopping this was for three weeks before hand, so i was 5 cm dilated already.

anyway after 19 hours of labour on the first/2nd CHloe came which left me with third degree tearing, so i was taken straight down to theatre to be stitched up.

to begin with i was having trouble with my bowels and wind but luckily that has all got back to normal, however i no longer feel when i need a wee until im really desprate, so desprate if i dont go as soon as im in alot of pain i will wet myself!

has this happened to anyone else?

Im due to see the gynae physio next monday so will mention it to her also.

my next question is - when have your periods come back,? if they have yet that is.
i started off brest feeling, which i managed for the first 3 weeks.

were now on formula and didnt no if that makes a difference to periods coming back.

not that i really want it back, but im not sure whats normal really.

Chloe will be 6 weeks tomorrow

Congrats on the new little one...I had my little girl on Nov. 15th.  I did tear but they did not tell me how much.  As far as peeing I don't feel the urge as much as I used to now that you say it but never have wet myself.  It could just be because your muscles down there are a little weaker and it's just not keeping it in like it should.  As far as the periods I am still pumping and have not got mine yet.  Not looking forward to stopping just for that fact alone.  I think it's just a waiting game until your body decides to ovulate again.  Good luck.
