24 Hours Postpartum
Regardless of how you birthed your child (aka watermelon), you can still look and feel like you have a watermelon (or two) inside you. It is often sort of lumpy and squishy too. There’s only one way that thing is coming down . . . hello, excruciating uterine contractions . . . may as well go through labor again. I gave birth vaginally (birth story here), and it feels like a truck, not a watermelon, ripped through me. Good thing is, I am so high on adrenaline and oxytocin nothing in the world matters except for my precious bundle . . . Two days later, it is a different story.
