    I was told no driving or heavy housework for 6 weeks. I started driving just before 3 weeks - but I lasted out the housework one as long as possible except washing - I would carry out the washing in 2 small baskets instead of one big one, but my Mum came & did all my floors for me \/

    I waited the entire 6 weeks to drive! LOL our insurance refused to cover me & we decided that it probably was a good thing too.

    I think I waited more than 6 weeks, only because I was too terrified to drive!

    Hi girls,

    Just thought I would share this with you all, My hubby and I were being asked questions by family member about the birth and my Hubby now just tells people that his son is making his way out via A) the emergency hatch B) the alternative entrance to the world or C) Hes a new age baby and hes making his own exit.

    What can I say MEN they have there own world.

    Have a nice day Girls

    I usually advie no driving for 2 weeks and no housework for 6 weeks.

    Also most places do not put a drain in.

    I leave the baby with mum as soon as she is back on the ward and I try to encourage/help her to breastfeed as soon as possable.
    If mum is very sleepy I offer to look after her baby for a few hours so she can get some rest, but the decision is hers to make.

    The sunroof!!!! LMAO - Hubby thinks that one is tops!!! Good one Barley.

    It seems that if you tell someone something funny like that it distracts them from the actual event, Maybe less negitivity that way?

    Yeh I know what you mean Lindie.I wish I knew these before I told people that I had a c/s as it would have made them laugh instead of frown and say oh you had the easy option then!ARhhh!

    Corey only managed to get one week off and even then he had to keep going into work to check on things as there is noone else to do his job.We stocked up the freezer with those micorwave meals, they were a god send!Otherwise I probably would have not have eaten at all when he wasn't there!

    I was lucky in that DH had a month off work. It was a real help!!!

    I quite often refer to the c/s as "the pouch" LOL like a reference to how Kangaroos carry their Joey's LOLOL.

    DH said to me after i had Alexander that they should just put a zip in so it easier to get the baby out next time.

    I definately could not watch the next one. I didn't like the fact that Dh watched the first (neither did the theatre staff, but they could not stop him).
