I had rough postpartums and it seems that I hear very little about postpartum. After my first child, I had a thyroid crisis. My thyroid became very overactive for several days. I was so weak from it that my baby was three months old before I was strong enough to push the vacuum cleaner.
After my second baby, my immune system was low. I was sick and running a fever for ten days of every month for six months. I ran a fever as high as 105.
After my third baby, I had arthritis for eight months.
Did any of the rest of you have problems for several months postpartum?
I had easy, vaginal births. The birth was the easy part. Postpartum was what was terrible.
