bernina- i started pumping in the hospital, got really overwhelmed with everything and decided to stop until i got home. getting my home pump tomorrow but because i started my milk has come in and now my once huge boobs are now ginormous and hurt like a sob. hot wash clothes helped a ton tho.

hard to imagine my life without my lil peanut, so glad i decided to become a mommy. so fulfilling.

emmysmommy - I am worried about juggling the 2 children too, especially as I will be breastfeeding again and know how attached babies can be in the first few weeks, my little man is only 2 and a whirlwind!!!! I am dreading it! LOL! But he is helpful and i know he will try and help, although sometimes it doesnt! How are you finding it so far?

I love the photos of all gorgeous bubbas - I am still getting booted from the inside. I have one stubborn baby on my case!

Ohh for breastfeeding mummies - I use these and got some new ones this time round. They are gel-filled and can be both thrown in the freezer and left to defreeze for a few moments before placing on breast to cool down when in pain with engorged breasts, or can be warmed up and placed inside bra. They are a bit steep at around 10 pounds but i gopt them from sainsburys when there was a third off. Here is a link..http://www.oscardehn.com/showdetails...reast+nurse%99

Does anyone need any breast pads? I've got 2, maybe 3 unopened boxes that I can post out when I'm in town on tuesday. THINK there's maybe 1 box of asda little angels and maybe a tommee tipped box if i can find it amongst all the other stuff!
I had a big supply issue so stopped BFing early and gave dried up already.

My little girl seems to be adjusting ok to the baby. She did start striving for attention when we got home, which i expected, and while dh is home he plays with her while i tend to the baby. It will be interesting to see how things go starting next week when dh is back at work!

That is what I was thinking - when DH returns to work!!! Although in all fairness, he is self-employed so doesn;t get paid for paternal leave - therefore will be returning quite soon after the birth - eek!

Aww Cottles - Toby is adorable
Emmys - Ava is so pretty!
Absolutely gorgeous babies x

Ah Im really proud of Ollie today. The least hes taken by bottle is 30ml Hes taken 3 full bottles all on his own!
He needs to take 24 hours worth of bottles though fully and easily before hes allowed home. Fingers crossed he keeps it up and Ill have him home before I know it

Sooner I get him home the better aswell as things with FOB are starting to turn nasty 3 days out of 7 hes had me in tears and enough is enough.
At least once I get Ollie home I can control who sees him and when, but in the hospital even though they know FOB has threatened to take Ollie away from me they still let him in without me :/ I cant do anything for worrying!

Aww Gem I'm so sorry you have the added stress of FOB to deal with. Just try to focus on all the progress that Ollie is making and like you said once you have him home you can control who gets to see him and when.

It really sounds like Ollie is doing great and getting stronger and stronger. He's a tough little guy for sure!

Here's a pic of Lizzie I'm thinking of using for her birth announcement.

She is so cute, currently cuddled on Daddy's chest while they're both sound asleep.

Bernina, I'm breast feeding and at the moment it feels like Matilda is constantly latched on! The midwife said it's normal in the early days as they are trying to establish the supply. As I've written this OH has just handed her to me, she only stopped feeding about 20 mins ago and he has been trying to settle her ever since!

That picture is adorable, look at all that hair x
