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.
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 was released after a 24 hour stay. But my son wasn't released until he was 28 days old. So technically I stayed at the hospital for 29 days!!
It was exhausting especially when they put him on life support that's when I refused to leave the hospital. I had my husband bring me the things I needed and we would go out to eat close to the hospital everyday but I had a hard time even doing that much cuz of my son's condition.
We stayed for 2 days after I had my daughter. The hospital and staff were really sweet.
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.
*they didn't let us know*
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.
I stayed for 3 days since I didn't have a C-section.. but coming home was very hard without my baby :(
