Your Fourth Week Home With Baby Post Pregnancy

What you may feel

  • Your muscles should be feeling much better by now.
  • You should be regaining control of your bladder
  • Your baby should be settled into a routine by this stage
  • You may have your first menstrual period at any time now.
  • Blood in your urine, or dark and cloudy urine could be signs of a urinary infection.
  • You may want to start doing some light exercise now, such as walking.

What you should do

  • Check on your post partum appointment.
  • A night out with your partner may be a good idea, so get the grandparents involved.
  • You may be returning to work soon, so spend as much time with your new born.
  • Although your muscles may be feeling better, it may still be easy to pull or strain a muscle, so be careful.
  • Keep making note of any questions that you may have for your post partum checkup.
