only have a couple of minutes... will respond more later, and so will others.
sounds like you have things under control - even with all that stress you have. as for the recovery - you will not be able to lift anything heavier than about 15 pounds for a few weeks. fortunately, tiny babies don't weigh that much [do they?????]
but you'll need a whole lot of sleep for yourself, especially the first week.
so DEFINITELY you'll need help the first week you're home, both for you and for your daughter, but i doubt that you'll have to send the baby away... except for the time you're in the hospital.
and you'll LOVE the help the second week, especially for the baby so that you can get the sleep you'll need [but unless something weird happens, you should be OK taking care of yourself - a bit uncomfortable, but mobile and functional]. and you'll APPRECIATE it the third... <see where i'm going with this???>
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
