I was booked in at 7.30. They came for me at 7, had my spinal block at 7.15, they started cutting about 7.30 and my daughter was born at 7.37. They held her up for me to touch straight away, then took her away and wrapped her up. I got to cuddle her for a few minutes then they took her to weigh her, cut the cord (closer) etc. she was then handed back to me for cuddles. I began to feel nauseous after a few minutes so gave her to my sister who took her through to recovery while I dry retched, the doc gave me drugs to feel better and they finished stitching me up. I joined them about 5 minutes later and she was put straight on the boob.
I was in recovery probably an hour maybe? Lost track of time cuddling my baby! I was back in my room about ten. I didn't have any pain straight away, it was worse later that night when the spinal block wore off. I did however get the shakes REALLY bad, that lasted hours. Not painful, just annoying.
I was pretty much better a week later and back to driving.
