I had my little boy 10wks ago. Im still getting afterpains every so often, they are so bad sometimes im sick because the pain is unbearable!! Some times i can hardly walk around the house while having them. They only last about an hour the most. Could someone tell me what you helped them getthrough the pains?painkillers? How they felt?go.ivnoticed i have them when imdue on my period
Mine lasted about ten days (baby no2) this time around , less and milder first time. Worse when feeding, I would definotely be asking for a scan to check all is ok as doesn't sound normal to be having after pains at this stage.
I had what i thought were excruciating after pains two weeks pp. Dh almost called an ambulance but got me in with a gp urgently instead. I took a urine sample along which tested positive for infection.
Please do the same. If it's not retained products it could be a water infection..
I can only speak for myself OP but I got after pains when bfing in the first few days. They were like really bad period cramps I suppose. I can't remember exactly how long they lasted but def less than an hour.
I'd say what you're describing sounds quite different - do get this checked out.
Also if you've had periods in the plural at 10 weeks pp I'm guessing you're formula feeding? I only mention that because breastfeeding makes the uterus contract quickly hence can lead to worse afterpains. So if you're in this level of pain and formula feeding, that's something that would worry me even more. Really not normal at this stage, I've ff both of mine and afterpains were very long gone by 10 weeks.
