The glimmer of hope is that they do tend to rapidly get better in the first week or so - lots of feeding helps the uterus to shrink, so at least you know it's doing good work! I also found that ensuring I had an empty bladder was helpful (it meant the pain wasn't exacerbated, at least!), and also gently massaging from the top of my abdomen (basically you can feel the 'fundus' or top of the uterus still, in the early days) downwards while in a hot shower gave me some relief and seemed to help with the lochia as well.

The things they don't tell you about *after* the birth, hey? :shock:
