I'm not there yet but am wondering the same thing! I don't want it to hurt or be awkward since the last thing that will have been down there is the baby!

Every one is different just see what happens and worry about the what ifs if they come up. You might dry up fast so just be prepared with a water soluble lube but really just relax and try to keep your mind off of anything feeling different

For me it actually felt really good but like I said everyone is different. You never know what itll feel like until you do it. Just take your time with foreplay get into the moment before you go for it. Dont try to just get it over with cuz it may hurt at first and feel better after a sec

Make sure to have lube just in case. It can ne dry down there and that will make it more comfortable. For me, it was really uncomfortable going in, but once he was in all the way, it was good.

With my first i had sex after 3 weeks abd i had tearing but i healed really quickly. I needed lube as i dried up alot after birth. I found it a bit uncomfortable at first and positions that worked for me before birth didnt wotk so well after but thatd the fun part... you get to experiment again!  Take it slow and easy abd if ur not quite ready then give it a bit more time. i found me and my hubby reconnected once we were able to have sex again and it made me feel more confident.
