Re: Visitor's after C-section? how long to wait

I asked the visitors to wait in the waiting room. They can go see the baby when the baby goes to the nursery (after I see the baby - and if I decide to let the baby go but i don't tell them this ). I let my mom and dad come in to see me for a bit so they can see for themselves I'm ok (I am still their baby after all). This also gives DH a chance to eat something NOT in front of me. Most of the time it's DH and me and the baby or my mom the baby and me...depending on how things go. I tell everyone else to wait until the following day to come and see me. They are welcome to stay in the waiting room until they can see the baby in the nursery and I even let DH take the baby out so they can see the baby and hold the baby...but i need my rest and don't feel like entertaining. If people other than family ask I tell them I don't like visitors at the hospital - come see me when I get home.
