Hospital Clothes

I couldn't believe how "puffy" I was after delivery. I had a c-section and was on a fluid IV for 2 days afterwards. When it was time to go home I could barely fit into my 9 month pregnancy clothes! Note to others, pack something very stretchy to go home in. I could hardly fasten my pants

Much better now. Back to pre-pregnancy weight 4 1/2 months after delivery.

Re: Hospital Clothes

I had the same issue after my 1st was born. She was an induction and IMO they left the iv in me way longer than necessary after the birth. I was so swollen I couldn't even wear my slippers to leave the hospital, I had to go barefoot. I had 0 swelling after my 2nd, where I labored for the entire time with no iv and they removed the iv within hours after birth once they finished the blood transfusion. This time I'm dreading the swelling since I knwo it will be another induction or a section

Re: Hospital Clothes

I wore pajamas home I didn't have an iv, though. My husband actually said the I looked pretty good the evening after my daughter was born.He was probably just saying that, though! Lol.
