Hi all! It has gone a little quiet on here, hasn't it.. It's those lovely babies keeping us busy!
How is Eve Laura? Eva seems to have settled back into a routine she will wake more often every now and then but it's not that bad! Had a scare this week.. Been feeling sick.. Thought number 2 may be on the way but all is ok..THANK GOD!!!!!!
Eva has jabs on tues luckily it's me, not OH taking her as he is a big girl when it comes to needles!!! Hope Charlotte's jabs went ok Claire..
Anyway hope everyone is well! I'll keep checking for more updates!
Well I said I didn't want to jinx anything ,I knew I would! Eva slept most of the day yesterday so I thought she would have trouble at night. She went down about 12ish after a bottle and a bit if coaxing, woke up at 4.30, fed but didn't settle until 5.30 and only when I put her in our bed. She then woke up at 8. Just shows they are still so tiny and run on their own schedule rather than the schedule we want!
The yoga sounds great! I'm thinking of joining a postnatal exercise group if I can find one as I don't want to jeapordise the healing after my c section , it still hurts sometimes...
I'm sure Eve will settle, she's still a few weeks behind the other babies, Eva was waking loads in the early weeks!
Hi Laura! Glad to hear you're getting on well an Eve is thriving! I am bottle feeding, Eva is 6 weeks old tomorrow and fingers and toes crossed seems to be settling into a routine at night. She usually feeds every 3 hours ish during the day and for the past 2 nights has slept from 10.30 until 5.30, sleeping till 8.30 after a feed. I don't want to jinx anything though but I would be so pleased if she settled into this routine!
We had our first smile the other day (non wind smile lol) was so cute! The last time I had Eva weighed she was 3 weeks abs weighed 7.5. I am expecting her to weigh around 9ish when she is weighed on Thursday.
I have friends who have expressed, and have got on really well with it. At least you can have a break maybe during the night.
I'm back to work a week on Weds. I only work a few hours in the evenings 3 nights a week and Saturday mornings so OH can look after Eva. I have a dance School, been closed for 8 weeks and I think people would go elsewhere if I left it any longer. I'm quite looking forward to it and I know Eva will be fine with her Daddy!
The weather has been great hasn't it? I'd bought quite a few cardi's for Eva when I was pregnant as I can't remember this time last year being this warm? I think our babies have arrived at a lovely time of year though.
I know what you mean about the saggy belly! I put on 3.5 stone in the end, I know some was water retention but I never expected to gain that much. Lost a stone and a half straight away but I think it will be a challenge to shift the rest!
How is everyone doing? Hope all the babas are doing well!
Aww congrats guys ... Well done Lisa, sounds like you handled labour really well. Benjamin is a really nice name . Congrats lolly, love the name Dylan too ...
Eva is nearly two weeks old already , it's all been a blur really but one things for sure I absolutely love being a mummy ! I'm still really emotional, don't think I have ever cried this much in my life! Do any second time mums remember how long it took for their hormones to settle down?
Make sure you let us know when your bundle of joy arrives laura and the best of luck
Been back and forward to hospital this week as had an infection caused by the c section, been taking antibiotics for 4 days so hopefully feel better soon. Good job OH confident with baba ad had to lie in bed for most of the week ... How depressing!
Surprised at how up and down I have felt, know it's only the hormones but can't wait to feel like myself again..,
Lolly, I feel for you I was 8 days over and it was hell!
Not long to go for everyone now ... Nearing the end of march now . I wonder how many 'due in march' babies will actually come in march ? !!
