yes it all sounds very normal have you had your 6 week check?. Have some lavender baths and don`t expect to be "right" for a while its early days. Stiches always take longer to recover from.

I had a second degree tear (though refused the stitches). At 6 weeks it was still sore and I got the gp to check it at my postnatal check. He said the very top of the tear still hadn't healed but the tear was healing and to give it a little longer. It was fine a couple of weeks after that.

I had 2nd degree tear with ds1 and was still a bit sore for quite a while after. It was a bit longer than 6 weeks, I remember because I bled for just over 5 weeks, had 1 day blood free and had my first period and was still a bit achy for a long while after that, mostly if I was standing up holding the baby, I could feel a pressure on the stitch site, but it did get better.
