evening girls

Claire WOW thats the best news ever!!! well done to the 3 of you! you must be walking on air! like you say its all new to him but i'm sure he'll settle in no time and soon be as good as gold!

Jem congrats honey glad your home!

Aimee hello we've missed you on here!! how are you?

Del get better soon hun!

tracy hugs for you think what youv'e decided is the best thing you can do! its all about finding a balance and its difficult enough with 1 let alone 2 babies to deal with! i really admire you for sticking with it this long- i gave up after 5 days cause i couldn't cope with Finn as well and he's 2!

Seth's been a good boy today he's still feeding every 2 hours but has been awake for a big part of the day so hopefully he'll sleep well tonight! fingers crossed x John's out at a works team building meal he didn't want to go but i made him as he is the boss!(looks bad if he dosent go!) plus i wanted time to myself to watch some of my tele! instead i've painted the kitchen wall can't believe it only took an hour(just got the bits up to the skirting and the ceiling to do! may need to give it a second coat tomorrow once i've seen it in daylight as its a dark colour and may look patchy in the  daylight)

right off to watch desperate housewifes love sare x

Well not feelig too good. Have an infection in my wound, feeling really rotten and very sore. Its like being right back at square one after the section. So, very down and upset, OH had to do all the feeds last night, so he`s grumpy and tired. He`s at work so i`m trying to get a few things done.

Archie is doing fine... he fed at 11.30 then he woke at 3 i usually keep him going until 5 but OH just fed him.. Archie was awake again at 6.30 but OH put him in beside me so fell asleep again. He`s been really happy and content this morning, he took 5oz at 8am. Just as well as mummy is feeling awful.

Hope everyone else is ok

Claire thats great news your all home xxxx

Morning All

Sorry Sarah, I ate ALL the cheesecake with only a little help from DH


Claire - what a great feeling for you all - I am sure you will be complaining about the sleepless nights soon!

Aimee - good to hear from you again - hope everything is going well.

(((Mo))) - hope your infection clears up quickly but at least it means OH has a taste of how much you have to do all the time and may be more sympathetic in future?

I think I must have fed Amelia in my sleep the other night as she was awake at 4.30am and my boobs were very grateful! We are going out for lunch with friends today (they haven't met her yet) so kept her awake until 11 so that she will sleep through lunch and I will be able to eat but she hasn't been dressed yet so I am looking forward to a cross baby in about 15mins!!!! She does cross very well

Hope everyone else is having a good weekend

Hi all, Hope you have had a good day.

Me, I am laughing now at the day I have had as Melissa is in bed..... but I have had the day from hell with the two of them. I swear Melissa is starting 'the terrible two's' early as she has had major tantrums today every time I was feeding or holding Isaac. I have not noticed her show any jealousy up until now but today she was really upset and frustrated poor little thing. I ended up sitting on the floor feeding Isaac and holding her at the same time. I am exhausted as was on my own all day with them crying was non- stop and it wasnt just me crying! 

Thank goodness oh is back tomorrow lunchtime so he can help me out as I really need a break, and my big boys are on school hols this week so that will be a reprieve for a couple of weeks as they are very good at entertaining Melissa.

Its funny sitting here now but it was awful earlier and I cringe to think what the message I left on my mums answerphone sounds like. I rang them to ask for help but they were out shopping and I was like please, please, come round at some point today. My mum was laughing when she rang me back eventually and everything had calmed down as I had managed to get Melissa to go down for a nap so it was crisis over. Did have the idea of taking them out for a walk but it was such rubbish weather couldnt face waking in the hail.

Anyway enough of the rant, tomorrow is another day!

Hope you all get a reasonable night. x         

05/04/2008 at 21:06

tracy hope issac is good for you tonight! Finn started his terrible 2's when he got to about 15 months he's still not talking(even tho he's 2!!) and its really difficult to communicate with him so he gets frustrated really easily and hits out quite a lot which i can deal with but he sometimes does it whilst i'm feeding seth which is really hard!! he's also a very cuddly boy and gets jelaous when i'm cuddling Seth and he want's one!

seths had really bad wind today so cried quite a lot but luckily John's been around to help!! going back to donny tomorrow instead! didn't get there today as weather was that bad decided to give it a miss

feel knackered tonight so gonna have an early bed especially as it would be my turn for a lie in in the morning but we've got a boogie birthday party to go to in the morning!

have a nice evening girls love sare x x x

06/04/2008 at 08:50

Amie.. Hi! Good to chat to you again. I`m doing ok, Archie is pretty good. He`s in a rountine of sorts and I am bottle feeding. My OH does feed Archie but thats about it. More of a confidence thing than anything else. But he`ll have to start doing more!

Tracy, hope you have a better day today x

I had a horrible night.. wound sore , night sweats.. just aching all over. Hoping the pills kick in today.

How is everyone?


06/04/2008 at 09:15

Hello everyone

Sorry I haven't been on. Baby Lucas McRae King arrived at 9am on April Fools' Day. I went into hospital at 3am and was told I was only 3 cm so was very relieved it didn't take longer. I used the birth pool and really liked it.

I haven't had chance to catch up on all the comings and goings but it seems that the honour of last March baby to arrive went to Jem - I'm so glad you didn't have to be induced!

Despite being 8 days overdue, Lucas is tiny - 5lb 6oz - so we had to stay in hospital an extra day as he wasn't maintaining his blood glucose levels. Since we got home it has been a nightmare of visitors and trying to feed him and sleep. My parents were so excited that they drove down the same day he was born (they live in Cheshire, we're in Hampshire) and have been staying with us - not easy when you only have a small house, they were sleeping on a blow up bed downstairs. They went home yesterday and today is going to be the last day we are inundated. Luckily (?) DH has an awful cold so we've cancelled one lot of the friends that were going to come over this morning as they have three kids under 5. We really should have said no to people but people don't even ask - they just tell you they are coming over!! DH is back at work tomorrow and I don't feel we've had any time just the three of us.

I can't help wondering why Lucas ended up so small and we are both worried about him growing - he's perfect in every way but just so tiny! Has anyone else had a tiny full term baby, or any positive experience that they can share to make me feel less worried? They don't help at the hospital when they use words like 'on the borderline of growth restricted'.

He was supposed to have his 5 day check today but there's thick snow here and the midwife rang to say she isn't coming. Got to go to the post natal clinic tomorrow instead which I'm not pleased about. Would rather be visited at home.

Sorry this is rushed, I will be able to come on more this week and actually read what everyone has been doing!

Congrats to everyone and lots of hugs for the babies.

Hello everyone.

A few of us have been talking on MSN about a mini meet up and we are hoping to meet up at Lakeside on Wednesday. Obviously anyone who can make it is more than welcome, the more the merrier really. If anyone wants further information you know where I am.

Which one of you has put a hex on me to have sleepless nights like the rest of you????? For the past few nights I have been waking every two or three hours, toss and turn for half an hour or even get up and have a drink. I don't always need a wee so I'm not incontinent lol. Come on own up!!!

I'm a bit depressed today as I have to go to work tomorrow and Dave is at home with Daryl for two wees, not fair

It's very quiet her today so hopefully you're all having a lovely roast, cooked by someone else, and having a restful Sunday.

Take care

Hello Girls!

Little one is asleep on his Dad in the chair, so thought I would make a nice cuppa and log on!

Didn't have a very good night last night, feeding was fine and the usual times of 11, 3.30 and 6.30, but he was really restless and crying lots! His colic is no better, but we went out this mornin for some fresh air - I have noticed that when I take him out for a walk, he is much more settled at night! Rich is doing ten nights in a row this week, so Mummy has got LO practically 24/7! Needless to say, I am walking around like a sleepless zombie! Still, looking forward to this week, am goin to get him weighed on Tuesday  as he is really filling out now! (I think that is Mummy's polite way of saying he is getting a fat little man!!!Am goin to get Dh to take some "Mummy and Harry" pics this afternoon, and I will put them on facebook

Hope everyone is ok!

Love to all,

Sarah x x x

Hi Girls, how are you all? It's been quiet on here today!

Mo - I hope you feel better soon! I know it's easier said than done but try not to worry about the housework or anything like that, just stay in your pyjamas and look after yourself and Archie until you are feeling a bit better and if you have any visitors ask them to do jobs for you!

Fiona - I don't think I have fed Willow in my sleep yet but close... I often wake with a startle and wonder where she is because I can remember getting her out for a feed but not putting her back so after checking in the bed I peer over and she's always back in the basket fast asleep!  

Amie - good to hear from you but sorry to hear that you are a bit down, one of the things you've missed not being online is the big ups and downs the rest of us have also been feeling, I think it's fair to say it's been a bit of a rollercoaster for a few on here and sleep deprivation is just awful and makes everything seem so much worse. I hope you feel better soon but in the meantime it's good that the HV is keeping an eye on you so that they can offer the right spport if its' needed. It's sounds like your doing a terrific job with Josh, Jayden and Chester!

Tracy - I hope today was better than yesterday for you!

Claire - Congratulations on the arrival of Lucas! I love that name! Don't worry about him only being little, I'm sure in the coming weeks you'll see him grow and grow!

Carol I think it's great some of you are having a mini meet up! I wish I could come but it's too far for me at the moment, make sure one of you takes a camera!

Hope everyone else is well!

Willow has been a little cutie today, we had a lie in together and watched the snow falling then OH came home early from golf (snow stopped play!) so we all had a nice lazy day. About an hour ago I was BFing and Willow suddenly just puked all over me and her, it shot out of her nose and everything.. I found it quite traumatic...OH found it quite funny!  

06/04/2008 at 20:40

Mo - hope you are feeling a bit better today.

Yes thanks today was much better altho Isaac is now constipated and seems very uncomfortable as hasnt had a poo since yesterday morning . ANy suggestions anyone? 

06/04/2008 at 20:58
