I cried alot that week. My husband was on paternity leave and I was desperate to go home, but I had to stay because of my pre-eclampsia.
My first few days as a mummy were on the recovery ward. I had to wear a catheter and was on a drip with magnesium to help reduce my blood pressure. It was hard to sleep as my arms and fingers were strapped to machines. I was also starving but I wasn’t allowed to eat for 48 hours which was the hardest thing of all.
