Okay, I had lots of tubes during labor, and some after:
1) Antibiotics (GBS+)
2) Fluids (I was very dehydrated)
4) IUPC (after the monitor lost his heartrate a few times)
5) More antibiotics (fever)
6) Magnesium sulfate (rising blood pressure and swelling, and very low, concentrated urine output)
7) Foley catheter -- this was placed after Eli's birth.
The antibiotics, fluid and magnesium I wasn't taken off of for 48 hours, and I had to take an oral antibiotic after that. I begged for the removal of the foley cath after (I think) 24 hours, and they gave me a trial run... boy, I've never peed so fast in my life, let me tell you!
The IUPC came out with Eli, and the epidural came out about 6 hours after birth.
