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

Tues am - went to hospital in labour
Tues 9 pm - went in for c-sec due to FTP, already had epi, IV and cath in
Wed - cath came out, IV too I think, got up to go pee. Took a shower later that afternoon. Was getting ibuprofen, naproxen and stool softeners regularly. Eating regular hospital food.
Thurs - Had a BM I think don't really remember though it could've been the next day. Still getting meds, still eating food, just hanging around the hospital, getting up and walking as much as I could.
Fri - Another lazy hanging out day. Still getting some meds. We could've gone home but we were struggling with BFing so we decided to stay one last night so I could spend more time with the LC.
Sat - went home before noon. Walked out myself, no wheelchair like most c-sec moms.

Not terrible but the last few days were crazy boring, which is why I loved that with my VBAC we only had to spend 1 night in the hospital.
