"Hee, hee, hoo" are the gentle sounds of my breathing, the lights are dimmed with soft music playing in the background. My epidural kicked in hours ago and I am sleeping through contractions while my husband holds my hand. The Dr. arrives, and with just a few pushes, my precious baby is out and placed in my arms.
Oh wait, that was just a dream.
Although for many, labor has been known to be just as dreamy — for many, it has not.
If you deliver in a hospital, you will most likely be moved into a separate recovery room after your baby is born. Most woman stay in the hospital for 24 to 48 hours after delivery.
One thing is certain — your life will be changed forever, for good :)
stay tuned for tomorrow's post on what to pack for the hospital!
