The ped. nurse shot daggers into us with her eyes and told us to "think really hard" about what we were doing. Lady, I've got 5 kids, this isn't my first time caring for a newborn, mmm-kay? So we'll just take our baby and let you get on with your day. Go save the world somewhere else.
I was in the hospital for a little more than 24 hours with both kids. The first time was hell because I had to share a room with a super loud woman and her super loud family, the nurses were surly, dh didn't spend the night with me, and there were umpteen unwanted "visitors" (picture takers, social security ladies, etc.) bugging me starting at 7 a.m. after my dd had been born after midnight the night before. :
Second time around I was at a different hospital with a private room. DH stayed the entire time and the hospital staff was awesome. I was still pretty ready to go home, though.
