Nope I'm looking forward to it too. It's my mini-vacation from my other kids. I just have to deal with a newborn baby which is easier than dealing with the other 4, while nurses bring me the food that I will eat that I don't have to prepare. I so understand.

I think you're both crazy! I strongly dislike the hospital. Especially the food! I actually don't eat it, I had my ex bring me subway etc with my last. I shudder thinking of it...

I am as well, a little bit anyways. But that is because this time around the only people I'm allowing as visitors are my mom, DH's local parents, and possibly one of my old high school teachers. Everyone else can just come see us after we get home, dang it. With DS I had him at 3:09 am and I think by 3 pm that day all 20+ members of my DH's extended family had come to see us. I want to sleep damn it, giving birth all natural is friggin exhausting, lol.

I don't know how the food will be at the hospital I'm giving birth at, but if I ask my husband or my mother they'll bring me good food.

Oh yes! To the point where I want to do the tour again (I did one 3 years ago when my daughter was born) just to look at their current menu :smileyvery-happy:

And this time I'll ask my hubby to please not stay over- he did the first night when my DD was born and he snored so bad I almost moved to the hospital hallway :smileyfrustrated: And this time I know I could really use some alone time - once I go back home I won't be able to enjoy me-time or me-and-new-baby time anymore.

I hope I have the baby at night, so I get to stay at the hospital an extra night hehe

While I don't think you're crazy, the hospital stay is never fun for me. I don't like the prodding and poking and checking my pad every time I turn around. I don't find it remotely restful.

I push to get out of the hospital NLT 24 hours after I deliver, sooner if possible. I have everything I need at home, and it's more peaceful for me to be around my own belongings. I've got lots of help with our 3 older children, so I'm not staying any longer than I absolutely have to. :)

OMG I almost forgot haha 'HAVE YOU POOPED?' :smileylol: I always felt like asking back 'No, have you?'

But now when I think about it - when I had my daughter we had bought a house and weren't quite moved in yet. After I came back from the hospital I still didn't have a kitchen (instead I had a team of contractors outside of my bedroom door, where I was with my baby, building the kitchen cabinets. And one of them told me how chubby I've gotten
