Sleepy recovery?


Hi!! I’m 16 days postpartum/post op.

Is it normal to still sleep a lot? Although it’s getting a little better every day, I’ve noticed that I have little bursts of energy where I’ll want to do anything (today’s task is mail and filing haway any paperwork in the house), but between those moments all I want to do is sleep.

I’m not physically exhausted like when I was pregnant, it’s more just sleepiness. It’s like I’m recovering from a cold without the cold symptoms. I think it’s my body’s way of making me rest but I haven’t read about it anywhere.

I’ve had a good recovery so far and im not on any more medication except an otc strength ibuprofen occasionally. Also my babies are in nicu (they’re ok!) so it’s not the new mom exhaustion lol. I know that’s coming. ;)
