Every nurse here says something different. ): I finally got a catheter last night after begging for hours. They said I couldn't have one, felt my stomach and my uterus was way above my belly button. It had been over 24 hours but before I went to bed the nurse told me if I waited I might be able to go on my own. The nurse that cathederized me said I shouldn't have gone that long period but the nurse this morning yelled at me for getting it done. Ali stopped feeding last night so she's being switched to formula until my milk comes in. It's putting unnecessary strain on me and her not feeding properly is giving me sores. Sorry for the lack of info, I'm just starting to get my strength back.

Aww.. Breast feeding is hard. It'll come in and you made a good choice . The nurses secretly get very frustrated with the mothers not willing to supplement with formula till the milk comes in.. They can't obviously tell the patients this, but my mom would come home and vent to us about it .

From my wife, to my daughter, to my 2 daughters-in-law, it's a learning curve for both you and Ali.

Hey Flint, I have the same issues with the bladder not working sometimes after "trauma" to the body. And I also end up all the time with one nurse who is nice and one who yells at me. Exact same troubles as you!!

This will be a stressful time as you are new at this. Not sure what is right or wrong to do especially with the whole birth process and it's effects on your body, the hormonal changes that have/will hit you and the complications of the birth too. There will be lots of strange but normal things happen to your body over the next year, yes it can take that long to get back to normal for some. "Run over by a truck" describes it best!
Then there is baby and feeding. Read lots, talk & listen to experienced peeps and talk to Hubby, then decide based on what's best in your heart for Ali.

Moms need to have their 2nd baby first!! By the time the 2nd one comes along you have experienced it all and are much more laid back and can make confident decisions for you, birth and baby2. You have all that experience to draw from!! (Not to mention new Moms you will meet just from having Ali on your hip everywhere you go that you will share experiences with!)

Go kiss your sleeping baby and let her give you some pleasure and happiness in moments of stress. You'll need your sanity for when she's crying!!

She doesn't even cry when she's hungry lol. Very quiet baby. I have a cath in now and am probably going home with a leg bag. The mean nurse came in to do it, looked and got another nurse to do it. She was pushing so hard because she didn't know where to put it. .-. Hopefully we get the news I can go home soon. I wanna see my fishies!!!!!
