    I was in the night before because of the gestational diabetes (they had to keep me on an insulin drip) but after the actual c-section I was in hospital for 27 hours! It was my 2nd section, the first 13 years ago was an emergency one.
    In Basildon hospital once you can get up and about and have produced 3 wee samples and eaten and drunk something, it's home time lol

    I had an emergency section on the Sunday afternoon and went home the following Saturday!!!! They weren't even keen to let me out then but I insisted! I did have very severe pre eclampsia though, so there was a lot more to keep an eye on with me. xx

    I was in for 24 hours at the first hospital. I could have gone home, but opted to transfer to a birthing centre for a further night to help with breast feeding, which was a complete waste of time.

    I had Ryan by planned section on the tues morning and they would have let me go home on the thurs at lunchtime. I didn't really feel ready as it was my first baby and I still wasn't happy with bf so I got transferred to my local birth centre for a further night.

    Isabella was born at 22.15 on the Tuesday evening by emergency c-section, and I went home on Thursday lunchtime. I felt ready to go home by the wednesday evening, but I'd only just finished IV antibiotics and we were still waiting for a paediatrics review and hearing test, so we stayed another night.

    I was in for 5 days as I had an emergency c section and I lost a lot of blood, 2 litres apparantly, also I picked up an infection due to them leaving me so long when my waters had gone. I absolutely hated it in there, I wanted to leave on day 3 but they wouldn't let me.
