Day 6 - Stitches issues

Everything is still going well. Little Elvis is an angel. Even his angry face is the cutest thing I've ever seen. Seriously. We've been trying to catch it for a picture and haven't managed to yet. Just you wait....

Last night, he started crying and I sat up in bed fairly quickly, so I could reach for him. That was a mistake. At the hospital, I had that special bed that would sit up for me. I felt an intense ripping pain on my right side where my stitches had been. I immediately fell back to the bed and Bob had to go change Little Elvis. I took my pain medicine, which I had been putting off and rolled off the bed the next time he started crying.

I called the nurse line at my doctor's office this morning and the nurse thinks I just stretched it when I sat up so quickly. She said to call immediately if I had a fever or chills, because that might mean something else.

Now I'm taking my pills a lot more regularly.

Any of you experienced this? Have any advice?

No because my staples were in for alot longer than yours! It was a constant reminder to go slowwww. As for the diaper changes, I always put a wipe over the offending parts before I start cleaning lol It catches things a lot faster than you can :)
