Was your first pregnancy/birth of your first child different from your second?
I had preclampsia with both & had to have them both early ( 3 weeks for daughter, 4 weeks for son.) But with my daughter, I remember everything just being so wondeful, I had an emergency c-section, but I felt like everything was so well taken care of, tons of people came to visit & brought flowers and gifts, and we had a great "home coming" and everything...... With my son ( 2nd) it was awful. I was soo sick and I felt like no one did anything about it ( the morning after I was released from the hospital, I was taken back in by squad, I had severe pneumonia, and almost died!) My mom and husband were the only ones who came to visit and since I had him so early and by surprise I was completely alone when I had him, a student nurse held my hand as they did the c-section.

All four of mine were very different. With my 1st I had terrible back labor and even though I didn't want an epidural I ended up getting one because the pain was so agonizing and I wasn't dilating very fast. My second was breech and they had to turn her and then they induced me right away so she wouldn't turn again. With my third the doc messed up my epidural and had to stick me again so I ended up in the hospital 2 days after I was released to get a blood patch for my spinal headache. And the fourth I didn't get an epidural (didn't wand to after the last one) but I was fully dilated so suddenly that it scared me when I transitioned so soon. With her I also had a 3rd degree tear that was not fun to deal with later. My youngest also had to go back into the hospital the day after we were released to be put under bili lights because her jaundice was so severe.
