So, as expected, the happy effects of my massage have worn off and I’m left achy and stiff (and a little bit grumpy).
I’ve never been one to take a lot of baths. I’ve always been more of a shower person. But when I’m feeling sick, sad, cold or overly tired, sometimes all I want is to soak in a nice, hot bubble bath. I’m feeling all of those things right now but, of course, my post-op instructions tell me no baths, intercourse or tampons for two weeks.
On top of that, I’m breaking out. I’ve never had amazing skin, but I found a skin-care regimen that worked well for me when I wasn’t pregnant. My doctor had warned me that my skin would likely get worse when pregnant, but I was lucky enough to have better skin with pregnancy.
So now, I’m not pregnant, I can’t have a bath, I have bad skin AND I have to wear pads.
