Hi ladies. Omg bobster love the costume. Arthur is so big now.

Mlm, still not sleeping much. Annabel just is hungry a lot, I barely have time to pump so I'm up all the time still. Getting nervous about going back to work in December. Really hoping she turns a corner in November and I start to sleep.

Awww bless little Audrey. She's so cute in her little Snow White costume

Doesn't seem 2 minutes since you announced her arrival to us. Time is flying by so quickly.

This difficult sleepless newborn stage will whizz by Mack. Try not to panic about work. Easier said than done I know. I can't believe how short your maternity leave Is there in the USA. You'd think it would be better. It must cause a lot of psychological stress on Families trying to juggle work and home life. It makes me realise how lucky we are in the uk and even more so for those working in the NHS as the maternity leave package is really good. What hours will you be going back on? Where will Annabelle go when you are working? Just try to remember that you felt like this after Finn and you got on with it and did so well so you'll be just fine again. Do you plan to express at work again? I'm nervous about going back too as increasing my hours to 30 for the extra money. Don't want to leave Arthur as love being at home with him but I know it will be fine once I've been back a few weeks.

Mlm any more ideas when you'll be ttc no.3? Are you on birth control? My coil is causing me lots of cramps so I might ask for it to be taken out and gone on something else

DH and I decided that we will start ttc #3 next spring/summer. Although if it were totally up to me, I'd love an "oops" pregnancy before then! I'm not on any birth control now, just condoms. And then when we are done with kids, DH will get snipped for sure.

So either of you have sleep issues with your older ones? Norah has been having terrible separation anxiety at night. She is literally almost having panic attacks and not falling asleep unless someone is in her room with her. She's also waking at least once over night and I am basically sleeping on her floor now. It's terrible.

Oh god that sounds awful. Jack has always been such a brilliant sleeper. Arthur on the other hand is up anywhere between 4-9 times a night. I'm so nervous about how I'm going to cope when I go back to work. We are co-sleeping still as he doesn't like being in his cot anytime other than his morning nap (his one and only consistent nap of the day). There's no pattern at all in his sleeping during the night. My OH is on the sofa most nights so he doesn't get interrupted.

I think he's using me as a comforter rather than needing milk. I've thought about taking the plunge and stopping bf altogether but if that doesn't work i'll be sad as I really enjoy bf and it's so convenient and easy.

So I'm Sorry mlm I can't advise you on what to do with her separation anxiety but hope its just a phase and will pass.

How are you ladies getting on? What are you both thinking about the election result? It shocked most people I know here in Britain.

Are you both ready for Christmas? Hope Jane comes back on here at some point.

I'm getting ready to go back to work in January which I'm dreading. Would love to be a sahm. Arthur's blossoming and I'm
Really enjoying spending time with him and Jack who is now a little man and no longer a baby.

Are your kids excited about santa? Jacks very excited. We are taking him to see him on Christmas Eve which will be nice. Hope it's colder at Christmas this year as it's been mild for the last 3.

Hope you are both well
