i gave birth on thursday morning. (yay!) It was fast and intense but fine, at home, felt - well, good, all things considered, after.
two years ago about 8 hours after my son's birth, when i got up to use the bathroom, i had an attack of shakes/chills so bad I couldn't stand, that lasted maybe 1 minute or two. I was ready for that. but it didn't happen.
THen, last night, days after the birth, I woke after nursing the baby, with no covers on my chest and only a short sleeve shirt. I was a little cold, and cramped, and stretched my muscles and was hit with an amazing fit of chills and shakes. I was SO cold, and it was at least 72 in the room. I was shaking so hard I was bucking and afraid of pulling something. Couldn't stop. Rolled away from the baby but shook so hard pillows fell off. Felt cold to my core. Pulled all the covers on me and took over the cat's warm spot (dh was in another room with ds). It stopped after maybe 5 minutes.
It was scary but not repeated. No fever or anything. Anyone experience anything like this? it was just so odd...
