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.
