  • Found out after i had my children, my kidneys are scarred. Only trouble i had was urinating after i delivered my daughter. They had to bag me...couldnt pee. I remember nurse telling me i wasnt that swollen after delivery. She seemed annoyed to catherize me. I didnt know i had anything at that time. This nurse made me feel bad. How awful. Regardless of whar her opinion was, i had a lot of pain because i could not urinate and needed it to be done. Second pregnancy i was ok. No problems.

  • Well, almost no problems. Lol! I herniated a disc during pregnancy. Joint pain and such. Felt like i had the flu after delivering her. But, all in all...was ok. You will be fine because you Know about your situation. I was also 36 and 38 years old when i had my girls. Take care!

  • Thank u... How sad that u were treated poorly by the nurse... But all in all u have 2 angels... May b one day even I can have my own children...
