6 week checkup Need some Advice please

Hi Persiankatz,
I'm glad the appointment went well. That GYN sounds like a true schmuck!!! One thing my doc did for me that has helped more than anything for all those mysterious aches, pains, twinges, etc...was send me to physical therapy. THat has been awesome. I'm feeling really good now. MY Physical Therapist has be do 10 kegals where I hold it for 10 seconds and then release for 20 seconds. Then I do 10 where I hold for two and rest for 4. I have been amazed at the difference it makes. She discovered that I was not releasing my muscles in that area (I think I had been clenching those muscles in an effort to hold my uterus up!). She gave me a big stretches band this also and I wrap that around my knees snug and then sit or lay with my knees bent and my heels together. Then I just push my heels together while I stretch the band to the count of 5, I do that 10 times. The other exercise is in the same position only put a big pillow or a rubber ball between the knees and push for 3-5 seconds 10 times. What a difference these make. Unbelievable! Well, I gotta go to work but I'm glad that it's over and you never have to go to beanbrain again. What did your daughter think of him?!
lol, Madelyn
