How much longer after a vaginal birth were you able to shower? Once baby goes to nursery I'm sure I'll want to get cleaned up ASAP.
I was allowed to shower at some point the next day. I delivered at 7:04 pm.
Are you sure you can send your baby to the nursery though? A lot of hospitals don't do that anymore.
I showered the next day but could have done it earlier. DD1 was born at 10:34am and I had just showered around 8:15am. It was a short labor so I wasn't that sweaty. Same with DD2 since she was a scheduled c/s and I had showered that morning
BFP 5/21/10, Missed m/c 7/5/10 at 11w3d (baby measured 7wks), D&C 7/7/10
Aug/Sept 2010 - CD3&10 b/w & u/s, genetic testing, SA, HSG, & Lap/Hyst to remove septum
12/09/10 BFP -- 7/05/11 DS born at 33w5d. Came home after 23d in NICU at 37w0d
June 2012 - TTC #2! -- 10/05/12 BFP -- 5/23/13 DS2 born at 37w1d! Yay full term!

ilovemarfa:I delivered at sister's hospital, I see you're from buffalo too, and I showered within a hour or so? I delivered,
It was a few hours because I had to wait for the epidural to wear off before I could get up and walk around.
Also, many hospitals don't have a nursery. The baby stays with the mom the entire time at mine. In fact, I can't think of anyone I know
Also wanted to add that our hospital does allow parents to send the baby to the nursery overnight. Seems like it is not common across the board, but they do have that option where we deliver.
