How long did you stay at the hospital after each birth?

I stayed the longest with my first and I think it was 2-3 days. The rest it was just overnight basically.

How about you?

    I was there 4 days and they wanted to make me stay longer but I begged to go home. I just wanted to have my stuff around me. And not get woke up every hour.

    I so understand that! I don't think I could have stood staying in longer than 3 days.

      Andrew and Adrianna were 4 days. Eva was 2 days and Grace was 24 hours-but only because they didn't want us to the bilirubin blood draw at the local doctor.

      I bet that meant a lot of trips back and forth to the hospital! I couldn't imagine how draining that would have been.

        Wow, that's a longer stay too. How did you do during your stay?

          We stayed for 2 days after I had my daughter. The hospital and staff were really sweet.

          That's nice you got some nice staff. It all depends on the hospital and shift. I've been in the hospital a total of eight times between my births and miscarriages and value nice, accommodating staff.

          My son's nurses and doctors were great they gave us just enough info to keep us praying and hoping for a miracle until he was released that didn't let us know the full extent of how fatal his condition normally is. But when they saw that he was here to stay they released him and told us everything about his condition. Now we're paranoid and are constantly checking on him to make sure his heart condition is completely gone and his lungs are getting enough air in them.

            What hospital did you have your kids in????? My mom had all 3 of us at northwestern. I think she is making us all go see her doctor when we come back to visit in September.
