Oh gosh she's a perfect little miracle!
Like @Degrassi, your story is so eerily similar to mine (including the pain issues and recovery) and seeing your little girl has sent me straight back to four years ago!
I'm so glad you'll get to see her today.
Thinking of you and here to listen anytime xxx

She's doing great in nicu it's very sad leaving her in there though....I'm ok I fainted in the shower yesterday morning after my c section and lost consciousness had 10 docs in the room giving me X-rays discussing what went on and they put me on oxygen. They then said I could have a blood clot in my lung and took me for a special radiation scan lucky it came back clear. So that was all stressful they said it could of been a seizure. But now they said it's because my blood pressure dropped and they didn't take me off my medication. I had a clexane injection this morning.
Pain wise I've just been trying to get by on Panadol and was doing pretty well. Last night I had one endone and I got another tonight my boobs are killing me I've been trying to express and they've gone rock hard and are extremely sore. Is that normal?
When you were home from hospital how often did you see your ds? And how long was he not home with you for?

When did you stop seeing the lines or spots after labour

When I got discharged from hospital it varied how much I'd see DS as we had a 2 hour round trip to the hospital (it sucked) and I'd be reliant on others to drive me in because I couldn't drive for a bit post c-section.
Sometimes I'd only be in for a few hours, other times it would be several hours. I never went a day without seeing him though. He was in hospital a total of 5 1/2 weeks.
I found the day I was discharged from hospital and had to leave DS there was gut wrenching. I bawled my eyes out for hours.
Sorry to hear you fainted, a bit of an unwanted scare for you I'm sure

I'm expressing every 3-4 hours with a little bit coming so that's good and they're giving it to her.
I'm discharging myself today because lm going crazy suffering from anxiety, crying not sleeping and not getting over what I've been through. It's going to be so hard to leave her here.
Hardest thing I'll ever do.

Hi, the main effects for me were blood pressure. I had high blood pressure plus protein which is why our dd was born. As soon as I had her my BP went down.
I was re admitted to hospital 6 days after having her (literally 1-2 days after I was released!) as my BP kept going back up again. I was at home & felt awful, just really off. Headaches, seeing dots etc. Did my BP at home & it was super high. Went back to hospital & I think it went to 160/110 (I'll have to double check that). It increased while I was in hospital but they were able to get it back down while there with different medication. I was on it for a couple of months after having dd but no longer need it.
