1. Did you go to the bathroom? I went to the bathroom 3-4 hours after delivery. I had my first BM 3 days after delivery.

2. Did you leave the hospital/birthing center? 3 days after delivery.

3. Did your post partum bleeding stop? Around 4 weeks after delivery.

4. Did you dtd? 6 weeks after delivery. It was seriously the day I had my 6 week PP doctor's visit.

5. Did you start thinking about the next baby? I actually said that I'd have another baby when I was being stitched up, but I was only joking. I started really thinking about it a few days later. I've since changed my mind!

1. Did you go to the bathroom? within an hour or two, I believe

2. Did you leave the hospital/birthing center? 9 hours after I had him

3. Did your post partum bleeding stop? about 2 1/2 weeks pp with barely there spotting until 4 weeks

4. Did you dtd ? 4 weeks but I was a little too ambitious...5 weeks was much better lol

5. Did you start thinking about the next baby? when he was about a week old. I think we're going to try for the next one when DS is around a year.

1. Did you go to the bathroom? about an hour

2. Did you leave the hospital/birthing center? 2 days later - my insurance requires you stay the "alotted" time, and Brylie was too jaundice to be discharged anyway..she also was having breathing issues and being monitored as an "outpatient" to the NICU

3. Did your post partum bleeding stop? 17 days

4. Did you dtd ? 3w, it wasn't good until about 7w though

5. Did you start thinking about the next baby? the first thing I said when she was out was 'lets do it again"....we're going back to our RE the 24th of this month in hopes of an oct/nov IUI

1. Did you go to the bathroom? Within a couple of hours. I went a bunch during labor, so I didn't have to go for a while after the birth.


2. Did you leave the hospital/birthing center?
2 days later. I enjoy my hospital stays...so relaxing. Ahhhhh! Especially with Joel, because I knew I had a very active 20-month-old at home waiting for me. I enjoyed the break.


3. Did your post partum bleeding stop? With Cassidy, 5 weeks. With Joel, 2 weeks.


4. Did you dtd ?
With Cassidy, 8 weeks. With Joel, 6 weeks.


5. Did you start thinking about the next baby? Immediately. Serious baby fever hits when the baby is about 6 months old.

1. Did you go to the bathroom? She was born at 4:23am on Wed and my catheter was removed so I could pee on my own when the night nurse came on (so maybe 7ish?) on Thursday evening. It was pretty awful too bc I had to pee in front of one of the nurses in a measuring cup and if I didn't produce enough urine then they were going to re-catheterize me - only this time without anesthesia. I have never felt so pressured to perform in my LIFE!


2. Did you leave the hospital/birthing center?
I was discharged at noon that Saturday. I was very anxious to get home bc I had been in the hospital since 5pm Monday, but when I got home my baby blues hit full force. Next time I won't be in such a hurry to leave


3. Did your post partum bleeding stop? I bled really really heavily for about 4 weeks and then had spotting for another 4 weeks.


4. Did you dtd ?
4-5 weeks - as soon as the lochia was light ,.enough that my DH could ignore it


5. Did you start thinking about the next baby? The next baby or the next pregnancy? I was asking questions about VBAC while they were prepping the OR before she'd even been born. And I went through a period for months where I wanted a do-over! But I didn't really want another baby, I just wanted the birth that I had been cheated out of originally. Then when she got to be about 6 months old and we were packing up a lot of the newborn stuff, I got baby fever really badly. She was so perfect and I wanted another one! And then she got mobile - and I was collapsing into bed every night exhausted from the tips of my toes to the roots of my hair from chasing after her. And that KILLED my baby fever. And then I got sorta used to that and my baby fever started to creep back. Until about 2 weeks ago when she decided to enter the terrible twos at just under a year of age. ANY time she doesn't get exactly what she wants when she wants it, she shrieks at the top of her lunch and arches her back and flings herself on the ground. It's so obnoxious and she's too young to understand discipline so we're kinda stuck staring at this writhing demon creature wondering where our sweet baby girl went and when she'll be coming back. So baby fever is on hold again until the elves come and take back this hideous creature and return our angel.

1. Did you go to the bathroom?
#1-a few hours. I had to wait until the epi wore off enough that I could walk.
#2-maybe an hour after, pretty much as soon as the placenta delivered.
#3-I can't remember, probably as soon as the placenta delivered-so within an hour. It's possible I went right after delivering him though, I gave birth in the bathroom then hobbled to the next room to rest and deliver the placenta.

2. Did you leave the hospital/birthing center?
#1-not nearly soon enough. We had to stay for a full day after he was born and couldn't wait to get out.
#2-at home.
#3-at home.

3. Did your post partum bleeding stop?
#1-5w and I spotted for another week.
#2-2w and I spotted occasionally for a few more weeks.
#3-2-3w plus spotting for a few weeks.

4. Did you dtd ?
#1-5w
#2-2w
#3-probably 2-3w, I can't remember.

5. Did you start thinking about the next baby?
#1-I honestly can't remember.
#2-Right away, but suffered some major abuse from my (evil) mother the next morning and had conflicted thoughts for a while after that.
#3-the next morning. I felt like I got hit by a bus that night and swore I was done, but after a few hours of sleep (dd stayed up until 1am and I stayed up with her) I felt a thousand times better and couldn't wait to do it again.
