Does anyone else actually miss the hospital stay of when they had their baby?

I must be crazy but I felt like I was on vacation..

  • Compared to my life, it is vacation.
    Room service, a bed you don't have to share, a tv you don't have to share the remote to, a view over the city(in my case it was the local park). You could set the temp in the room and not have people complain if they were hot or cold. Pain meds were administered around the clock, if needed of course lol Laundry was done for you, I had a house keeper (house keeping lol). If I needed a little time to rest, they'd wisk my child off to the babysitter (aka the nursery)......
    That's the life.

  • No I wanted out. Both kids were c-sections and I was begging them to let me go the next day lol

  • I had a stillborn in 05, I am now 8 months pregnant. With my stillborn I wanted to go home right away since there was no reason to stay. Also, I have a feeling I will want to go home right away with this one also but just because I have a lot of family to help me. I might miss all the expert nurse advice though once I leave.

  • I don't miss it at all....I delivered my son (now 3) at 2:52 PM, and left by that same time the next day. They were going to keep me another day, but I told them that I just wanted to go home, and since I had no problems they let me (thank goodness!). I was SO happy to be home, in my own bed, without nurses coming in every 10 minutes!

  • Yes it was wonderful! The food was great, there was no cleaning, the nurses were so nice, etc. For each of my 5, I stayed at long as they would let me.

  • After I had my son and we got to come home after 4 days, I really did miss the hospital. I thought I was the only one! lol I loved the food and the nurses were great. I also felt safe there, I guess. Sorta like if anything were to go wrong (as a first time mom, I was worried about everything), I'd be in the right place.
