    DS1 I can't remember - I think I walked pushing him the the plastic crib thingy
    DS2 I was in a bed - I had a PPH, then fainted so they cathertered me and didn't allow me to get up for a day (when I did I fainted again so wasn't allowed up for another day)

    DD1 - i was 'stretchered' from the bathroom floor to the ambulance (holding DD1), taken into hosp, i spent the first night and part of the next day in the birthing suite as the ward was full but the next day i walked up (barefoot cos in the rush we forgot shoes & slippers).

    DD2 - i had a shower, got dressed and then walked up, it was about 1am in the morning, it was so peaceful!

    DS - 22hr labour, episiotomy, epidural, I walked from the birthing room to my room after a shower. I wasn't even offered a wheelchair.

    DD - about a 5hr labour, 2nd degree tear, I walked from the birthing room out the front door. I went home 6hrs after dd was born.

    i was wheelchaired. totally didnt like it but was hospital policy.

    DD1 I was wheelchaired over with a catheter and all the rest after having a severe PPH. Couldn't get out of bed for 24 hours minimum after the birth and it suuuucked, I still had two cannulas (sp?) in my arm and reeked of assorted fluids despite a nurse giving me a wipe down with a wet flannel It was so disgusting, laying there in my own filth with no pants on for 27 hours

    DD2 I gave her a feed before DH cut the cord, then when she fell asleep I handed her over for weight and measure, hopped out of bed and grabbed my bag and hit the shower. Then I toddled (I was a bit sore!) over to my room and found breakfast waiting for me, wolfed it down and had a nap It was awesome, I went home that afternoon.

    DS I was wheeled on a bed, post c-section. I had DS in my arms the whole time though.

    DD after a shower I was wheeled to NICU to see her and then wheeled back to our room for the night but was up and about quickly.

    First two I walked the last one I was in a wheelchair as I had severe SPD. My second was the best, I had a induced 3hr labour with no stitches and a epidural. After she was born I got up and showered, shaved my legs and washed & blowdried my hair before walking back to my room!
