Sex before 6 weeks postpartum??


So my birthday is tomorrow. And hubby and I have special plans and a babysitter tomorrow, we may not be away from the kids again for a little while. I gave birth oct 19th and had an episiotomy, and got dissolvable stitches. Since it has been about 5 weeks, would we be able to go ahead and go for it yet? Or is it absolutely necessary to wait? Any other mommas with stitches that had sex a little earlier??
