after your c-section?
My daughter was born on Saturday evening, and I think I took a shower Monday sometime. With her I was on magnesium sulfate until 24 hours after. It makes you very dizzy so it's hard to walk or even sit upright for too long. It was very nice to get a shower with her.
Francis was born on a Wednesday afternoon but I didn't get a shower for what seemed like ages. My long hair was as ratty as you could imagine. He was born unexpectedly at 35w so we hadn't had much of a bag packed. I didn't have shampoo or conditioner. The Friday after he was born, I gagged on a multivitamin and threw up spectacularly all over the bed. I showered then but couldn't wash my hair except to get it wet. I called my mom and asked her to bring stuff for me for the next day. She did, and I took a 25-minute shower. Then it took me 20 minutes to comb out all the rats' nests in my hair.

I confess that I took baths right off the bat. I just kept them really, really shallow, like two inches of water so there was no chance that it would rise to my incision.
