As of right now, I have requested a c-section on a Wednesday as DD2
goes to daycare Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. DH will sleep at home
with her, and drop her off at daycare each morning. He'll work for a 1/2
day and spend a few hours with me and baby at the hospital before
leaving to pick up DD2 from daycare.
When I'm picked up on Saturday morning, DD2 will come with DH at that point and meet the baby before bringing us both home.
Does this sound like a realistic plan? My in-laws have offered to take daughter who will be 24 months old for the days I'm in the hospital, but I am concerned about breaking her routine and disrupting her further. I truly don't mind being at the hospital myself, I did it when DD2 was born. I'll be recovering from a c-section and working on breastfeeding, I don't know that I need someone sitting around watching me lol
