Ooh, have always fancied a hot Christmas. Maybe one year. 4pm darkness is definitely not the way to go. I suffer a bit with SAD type symptoms so always make sure I have at least half an hour outside in the daylight. This involved a relatively brisk walk with the pram today . Quite chuffed I managed to get out my own! Ben is back at work today so it our first big test. Not feeling too bad, although young lady did decide to do her mad cluster feeding session this morning, so was pretty wiped out by lunch (which was a bowl of porridge, eaten one-handed - better than nothing, I guess!). Hopefully this means she will sleep well tonight?! She was weighed again today and has gained 11oz in 6 days so I must be doing something right. Touch wood, the bf is going really well and I am actually enjoying it this time.
Sorry if none of that makes sense. Sleep deprivation!!! Well, she isn't bad, but I do like a good 9 hours. Hmm, may be a while before that happens all in one go again!
The thought of the blisters makes me want to cry...bad enough after a marathon! Although I didn't suffer the last time I did one (3 yrs ago now - need to sort that out!).
looks like someone might be awake soon so I had better dash. Currently having our windscreen injected as we got a nasty chip on it yesterday. Was worried it might need to be fully replaced, but fortunately not. Giovanna is being a very good girl today and has been the most alert she has been so far. Lots of eye contact Can't believe she is over two weeks old already!
Know that feeling, Vixo! My little baby is a poo factory!!!
((TT)) How awful Hope she gets the support she needs in the days and months ahead. Cannot begin to imagine.
£20 for my subs too. We get some people running who aren't paid up but the club secretary is pretty good a chasing them. Does take the mickey when people don't pay. Makes me grrrr.
Good luck Lotte!
Yay to weight loss, EF . I am amused every time I get on the scales just now. have lost 9kg in 10 days, lol.
Boo to the comment, JG
good news on the bum, Hoggle!
Have come to the conclusion that we have an easy baby. I know, shouldn't curse it, but so far so good! I realise now that JP was actually quite hard. I thought colic etc was normal... Last night she fed at 8.30, 12, 4.15, 5.30 (after making room with three huge poos!) and then 8.10. The only time she didn't go straight back off was after the 4.15 feed. Seems to be most awake at that time of the morning! Ah well.
Hello! Loving all of the Santa smileys Thought I had better pop in and update you all on little one. She is just fab and we are all besotted. She is a very calm and content baby (so far a lot easier than JP was, but I think that my being relaxed has a lot to do with that) and she is sleeping for 2-3 hr stretches at night. Most nights we're getting a total of 7 hours, which I am very happy with!
The birth itself was amazing and I am so glad I went for the C. I guess otherwise we would still be waiting! I was first in theatre at 8.45 and she was born at 9.11. I really enjoyed the whole experience and felt calm right the way through. I haemorrhaged quite badly (1200mls) but they managed to stem it fairly quickly and I had a syntocin drip in recovery. That was probably the worst bit because I was there for five hours, but we did do lots of skin to skin to pass the time Six days on and I cannot believe how good I feel! Tummy is looking less pouchy (you know what I mean!) all the time and the wound is healing brilliantly. All worth it though!
