How many days for C-Section Hospital Stay

I just got my c-section date and wondering how many days do you usually stay in the hospital for? I am going on November 24 and hope to be home on Thanksgiving Day. I thought it was four days? My friend told me 5 days. TIA!!Chat Icon

I was in on a Thursday and out on Monday. I could have left on Sunday but Andrew was still in NICU so I chose to stay.

Re: How many days for C-Section Hospital Stay

I got 4 nights but was outta there after 3. I was feeling better and was basically on my own in terms of taking care of Emerson anyway since I kept her out of the nursery all day so I just wanted to be home where we could relax, get comfortable, and be with daddy. Chat Icon

I milked it and got 4 nights. I also knew that Abby wasn't going home with me, so my doc made it easier for me to stay with her.

Re: How many days for C-Section Hospital Stay

3 nights sounds good. I just do not want to be stuck in the hospital on Thanksgiving. It would just be so depressing. It would be nice to go home and enjoy and yummy meal in my own home in my pjs!!! LOL

Re: How many days for C-Section Hospital Stay

My doctor told me that I could go after 3 nights, but she gave me the option of staying the 4th and having my staples taken out before I left the hospital. If I didn't do that, they I would have had to go into the office 2 days later and have it done. I figured that it would be easier to stay as opposed to having DH drive me to the office with my 1 week old.

If it was Thanksgiving though, I would probably have felt differently Chat Icon

I think it depends on the hospital. At Good Samaritan, it's 4 days.

me too!

My OB did tell me that if I wasn't feeling well I could stay 1 more night..I felt fine and went home after 3 nights. When I had Hayley, I stayed the 4 nights, the Dr asked me if I wanted to stay since she was in NICU.

Re: How many days for C-Section Hospital Stay

4 days with both of my kids, you can go home when you want, but its best to stay the 4 days to recover and get the help you need from the nurses.
