Re: What did your c-section stay look like?

Day 1: Went in around 3pm for pre-op. DS born at 5pm.
Day 2: Hooked up to IV, cath and leg pumps all day. Removed leg pumps in the afternoon because they were bothering me. Clear liquids all day.
Day 3: Removed cath in the morning. I walked around room a little. Air pocket in shoulder (thought I was having a heart attack!).
Day 4: I lost a lot of blood during surgery so they were giving me iron in the IV and didn't remove it until about 8pm. We were discharged around 11pm so we didn't have to pay another day in the hospital (no insurance).
