Really? They gave me mine next to my belly button. Maybe slightly above.
The midwives were dodgy in several different ways though so I wouldnt be surprised if it was the wrong way to do it!
I don't remember getting any injections at all lol I wore compression stockings like a pp I guess different places have different ways of doing things.
When I had DS I had to give him formula top ups on day 3 (night 2) as his blood sugars were low and my milk was slow to come in. I was up and about but he was on the boob constantly and would scream whenever I tried to put him down so I couldn't prepare the formula.
I was told I could ask a mw to help me 'if they weren't too busy' and I did once, once I prepared it one handed and took ds with me down to the milk room the rest of the time DP just did it.
Maybe we were lucky that he was aloud to spend 2 of the 4 nights in hospital with me, I don't know if every hospital allows this, but its hard at night when you're on your own.
With my c sect I wasn't out of bed until about 36 hours after the op because of complications. It really depends on how things are going but some people are able to get up again that same day.
