I gotta be honest….this still sounds horrifying to me. Kudos on the great disposition…but this was AWESOME birth control for me.

It hurt me to read that!  I was like clinching my vagina the whole time haha.  Kudos to you though for being such a trooper!  P.S. “pain in the ass” references are hilarious ;]

I love you. 


I did experience tearing when I gave birth, but I maintained two separate entities in my downstairs region. However, any time I have to tell the story, it sounds very much like this (with a lot more of that “cooling spray in a can stuff” tossed in).

@iarebridezilla:  Thank you for the update! Glad to know you are doing better. But I’ll admit when I got to the part about you jogging 3.5wks PP, I yelled at my computer screen saying, “What the hell are you thinking?!””

SO glad you posted an update! I was alarmingly, bizarrely interested in the condition of your former vaganus.

I’ve heard the “it wasn’t that bad” comment from women with 4th degree tears before, but none of them ever elaborate on it! So I’m gla I got to finally hear someone’s whole story!

holy hell you can say “It wasn’t that bad” until the cows come home, but I never ever ever ever want to give birth.  Ever.

Glad you’re doing well though.

@iarebridezilla:  I had a weird hormonal melt down when I ran out of that spray. What if I had to go to the bathroom before we could pick up more?! Its not like you can just run to the store with a newborn and a mangled vagina.  🙁


I also had an unnaturally long discussion with my husband about whether or not I should use the last ice pad thing. Did you get those?! Like a pad with an ice pack? There was no better feeling than snapping them in half and straddling them like they were going to get away. I really felt like I should save it in case there was ever another vagina wounding incident, but he talked me into enjoying that last one. Here’s hoping I have no future need for that thing.
