I just remembered I had some serious bleeding after the babe came out - I had like 8 people trying to stop my bleeding for almost an hour. Poor hubby was TERRIFIED not knowing whether to watch the nurses handle the baby or stay by my side in case I die. No wonder he snored later like he had saved the universe from an alien attack.

And yes, checking my va-jay-jay became such a routine over those 2 days that I was almost disappointed when someone walked into my room and DIDN"T want to look at it (including my brother-in-law! :smileylol: )

Maybe it depends on the nurses, but I didn't have stitches with Jake (he was smaller than the other two and my OB was very anti-episiotomy) and they were still down there nosing in my business. My guess is they're checking on bleeding, maybe?

And now I'm remembering having to wear a pad for a week. Ugh. I just hate that!

I've delivered in 3 different hospitals, and it's always been that way in my experience. And, I understand they're just doing their job, and I appreciate them looking after me, but the sooner baby and I can bail, the better. :) It'll be interesting to see how they do things at this (another new) hospital.

After reading everyone's post, now I'm remembering all the pad checking and the "have you pooped" questions, and wanting to lie to them just so they'd leave me alone...maybe vacation was the wrong word.
