I have just recently (last week) delivered a baby girl.
I had a relatively difficult delivery. Natural contractions, epidural and quite a lot of pushing until i couldnt do any more and my precious baby was finally delivered by suction.
I am in recovery mode at the moment with the usual aches and pains. However, one thing that both my husband and i have noticed, and which we verified tonite with a measuring tape, is that i have lost 1.5 inches since giving birth.
This definitely just happened in the last week as i am now looking up at my husband where before i was level or slightly above eye level with him.
Can someone tell me if this is normal and what does it mean?
