It could mean that your milk hasn't come in yet. It could also mean that you have a very efficient nurser! Just watch for wet diapers. Don't worry about anything else besides diaper count right now.

With all three of my pregnancies, it took around 3 days.

Give it time. Is this your first?

Never mind, I read your post again. This is baby three.

I've heard that you don't always get engorged with later children. Your boobs are more used to it by now. I'd go by diaper count and weight gain.

No pee at all? Are you still in the hospital?

That is normal, it might not be in yet. With my firs the milk was in before I left the hospital but with my 2nd ds I lost a lot of blood during labor due to a bad rip a because of the loss of blood it took longer for my milk to come in. I had to pump every few hours to help get it to come in faster, and I gave the baby a few oz of formula while I was pumping to make sure he was getting enough to eat.
