About 48 hours. He was born just before noon on Thursday and we went home Saturday early afternoon.

5 days, but dd2 was a crash cs, I had a GA, and I felt like I needed to be in hospital for the first 3 days.

Only had 1 cs - ds was born 1pm on friday, left hospital at 7pm on Saturday, hate hospitals, begged with consultant to be let out, he agreed when I overtook him in the corridor on the way back from the canteen!

2 days both times

3 nights both times.

three nights for second.
first was emergency, and I didn't get out for a week.
btw i think they count the day of delivery as day 0 so it doesn't count. I was nice to have the quiet time with ds2 to be honest, though it was god to get home

pinkyminky Thu 16-Aug-07 17:12:13

that's good to get home!

PestoMonster Thu 16-Aug-07 17:12:23

4 nights, by choice. They said I could leave after 2 but I loved not having to look after my toddler or cook meals!

2 nights both emergency and elective CSecs. Second hospital was so understaffed I was desperate to get out of there but it took ages to find someone to discharge me!
