Poor millie, hope the doc can help her out today.

Good sleep for Flynn!

I am struggling with trying to get Poppy down at a reasonable time- she will sleep downstairs on the sofa or on Dave until about 10, i'll feed her, but she wont settle until about midnight! Mind u saying that she'll usually sleep until 5ish then, this morning was 7! But i would like her to have a more reasonable bedtime- but she cluster feeds so much i cant see how i can, and she wont settle upstairs earlier.

I think my scar is coming to a head today, i think the abscess has burst as a section of my scar is now full of blood and puss (bleurgh!!!) so now we have to see if it gets reabsorbed or whether its going to split the scar, its freaking me out, it looks disgusting!
Luckily Dave has taken today off again, i think i would panic slightly with that and having both girls to look after!

My gosh sarah what else do u need to do? I can't understand why your birth wasn't discussed before?! It could have been sorted before now.
So fantastic that u can now visit with neils dad and he will take care of logan when he leaves hospital, that's one big relief. And great about it being proven that u couldn't have shaken him. There was no trauma to his head so surely that proves it was something from the birth or a long time before u took him to hospital.
It must be so frustrating for u, everything is backing u up, with glowing social workers reports but still he isn't coming home? I really don't get it x

Blimey Sarah you poor thing sounds like they are making an absolute mess out of everything and the consequences of them doing so are so high you'd think they'd be doing a better job your update sounds so positive though, I hope they come to their senses soon and Logan is back where he belongs.

Ally that sounds so bad are you in a lot of pain? I hope it doesn't burst

Millie's swab came back clear, so looks like her belly button is just taking a bit longer to heal. The doctor agrees that it's colic/bad wind she has and he said to continue using infacol but also try it with gripe water and see how she gets on. If no improvement, or the crying becomes too unbearable to take her back and we can try prescription stuff. I bought some gripe water straight away and that plus the infacol has made a massive difference already... although I'm now sat relaxing in the tub and can hear her crying downstairs and OH trying to soothe her spoken too soon perhaps!?

Awwwww Lauryn- i hope the infacol and gripe water helps, colic is horrible, Izzy had it and the only thing that worked was colief. Glad Millies belly button isnt infected.

Sarah- i hope today goes ok xx

Well i woke up this morning, went to the loo and saw blood dripping down from my scar, so now its started weeping and is freaking me out even more! lol. I am sat here with a sanitary towel on it waiting for the doctors to open. I really hope the whole lot doesnt open as its about a third of my scar and in the middle section so it wont be pretty. Its actually not too painful unless i move so if i lay/sit still its fairly pain free. I feel dizzy and sick but think thats more psychological than anything else!

Oh sarah, im so pleased the shaking has been ruled out, and that neils dad has been made logans carer, its all steps in the right direction. Surely if there are no marks on logan there is absolutely nothing you can be blamed for and it should be straight forward from here? Though I guess not with all the procedures that have to be followed. Will you take things further when you are cleared?

Ally, I know I have been what apping you but sending another hug and get well from here.

Lauryn I think we have matching babies. I haven't wanted to write anything cos of what Sarah is going through, I feel I shouldn't complain at all but I am struggling so much. I just need to release this as I have no one else to talk to. This crying is destroying me, its been 4 weeks of up and down and getting worse. Im so lucky he is sleeping so well but the days are long and hard. 4 hours last night he screamed constantly. Every waking moment is just crying. I feel im neglecting luke as oliver needs comforting all the time and I hate hate hate it. There us nothing obvious thats causing it so I cant do nothing. Why have I got such another unhappy baby? Luke was exactly the same. I must be doing something wrong

Thanks ladies Kellie I definitely think we are in the same boat, you are not alone and it certainly is not your fault are you using anything for colic? I must say last night was so much better than she's been in a long while but I don't want to speak too soon! I also feel bad on Amber as Millie is pretty much all consuming and I seem to be the only one out of the 2 of us that doesn't get as stressed with her luckily Amber has been fine and is still her happy little self, so looks like it's just me feeling guilty ridden. I also haven't spoken about it too much, one because I've not had the net so couldn't get online but also because it is a little embarrassing. I am coping but its bloody hard, I was looking forward to this newborn and young stage so much when I was pregnant and now I just can't wait for it to be over!

Ally, that would freak me out so much. Did you have this last time too?
