Keren,

These articles may help you:

Froman, T., & Shneyderman, A. (2004). Replicability reconsidered: An excessive
range of possibilities. Understanding Statistics, 3, 365-373.

Yuan, K.-H., & Maxwell, S. (2005). On the post hoc power in testing mean
differences. Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 30 (2), 141-167.

I'm pretty sure that one will tell you how to compute post-hoc power for your situation, but also that both will tell you it's a useless and misleading thing to compute. (sorry)
