yeah it is a hormonal thing. It will go away but it will take awhile.

Your body has retained alot of extra fluid in those 9 months...
And I'm sure you got a ton of fluids in the hospital. It's totally normal and healthy to diurese after the form of sweating and peeing. It's annoying but it should slow down soon..

Totally normal, your body trying to get rid of the extra fluid. With my middle daughter her dad (a total jerk if I could only give you all the examples) refused to sleep in bed with me for 7 weeks after our daughter was born because he said I smelled all the time.

This is also the guy who told me I was too fat 2 days after our daughter was born.
