I could die with excitement! How fantastic -and well-earned!!!!!!!!! Don't worry, you've got a thick cervix there to protect LO from the poking and prodding...Lord knows I did it to Summer when she was in there! Her b-day is Nov 16th -- what a WONDERFUL thing to log in and see! I remember getting my BFP on Mar 29 (she came early). So reminiscent!
Hi ladies I am so thrilled to read you got you puppy!!! That's fabulous news! It's great to hear everyone is doing so well too Jess, did you go for your first scan yet? Cant wait to see your scan pics both if you!
I barely get a minute to myself anymore so I'm really sorry I've not posted for ages. Today consisted of breakfast, swimming, lunch, museum, dinner, bedtime for boys, cleaning, sewing fancy dress costume for H, ironing, and now finally it's my bedtime! I wouldn't have it any other way though Olly is still piling on the weight, he is a beautiful boy though and not fat. I can't believe he is nearly 2 months old.
Hope you all have exciting weekends lined up xxx
Ps my sister had her little girl too a few weeks ago after a real marathon of an induction. She had a long stay in hospital afterwards too as they couldn't get her feeding established and baby became jaundice. But all good now and they are safely back home
Puppy!! Woo hoo!!! Congrats!!! Sorry I've been so silent lately. I'm finding it hard to have time on the computer or doing anything that requires two hands and my iPhone is so old it doesn't always like BnB during those middle of the night feeds when I actually do have free time. But what a fantastic thing to finally come on and see!! You must be so excited!! Try not to worry and trust in your body. It knows what it's doing so just enjoy. How are you feeling? I was so exhausted at that point.
Jess, how are you doing? How was your scan? I can't believe you're 8 weeks already.
Jen, Emma, Kerry, how are those babies? How are you doing?
We are doing well. Josie is just over 5 weeks now and I *think* we are slowly getting the hang of this having a baby thing and she is slowly getting the hang of the being a baby thing. She is gaining weight well now and we are hanging in there with the breastfeeding, which I'm really proud of. It's been a rough road, as I've had mastitis and now thrush and another plugged duct (which I'm really hoping doesn't become mastitis again), and we're still using a nipple shield for most feeds (it's still sore because of the thrush). But we're doing it and she seems happy. She's been quite grumbley this past week, which I've heard is very normal around 5-6 weeks as they get a growth spurt. We are trying our best to be very baby-led with her and it's a lot of work some days (I wish I could put her down sometimes and just have her sleep for hours at a time, but she tends to sleep best being held or in bed with us and that's fine with us). But she's so good and sweet when she's not grumbley, so I don't mind too much. My mom and stepdad are coming from the US on Friday, which will be the first time they meet her, so we're excited about that. It will be good to see them and have some extra hands. Mom is so excited that I'm going to let her clean the house, which she loves doing! Okay, off to feed the snuggle monkey, will update again soon. Here she is on Friday at 5 weeks, all 7 lbs 3 oz of her!
Mind - Josie is looking fantastic and beautiful! I think it was right around 5 weeks that I started to feel a trace of sanity and normalcy coming back into our lives....it only gets better from here on out. Congrats on surviving the hard part, and on your commitment to breastfeeding despite the struggles
Peanut - is your sister's baby healthy? How different is it being a mom of 2 now? I can't believe you're running around doing this and that already! SUPERMOM!
Anxiously awaiting updates from the rest of you...and new scan pics to come!
Emma you are supermom! I wish I could accomplish 1/4 of what you do! I'm so glad your boys are doing well!
Karen Josie is so adorable, she is just so darn cute curled up on you! I'm glad everything is coming together and that you have help coming so soon.
This post is a week late and I apologize but I've been busy getting ready for state testing.
My ultrasound was spectacular. I swear I could listen to that little heartbeat all day long. It was great. The baby's hb was 145 bpm which is great and the doc said everything looked good! Hurray! They did change my DD. When I got the scan I was 7 weeks 4 days, but my lmp put me at 7 weeks and 5 days so that's what they wanted to use. Therefore, it puts me at October 25th! That was fine with me. I also had blood drawn today and they took 4 vials! I thought I was going to be bloodless when she was through with me! Other than that, I'm still exhausted and my bbs hurt sooo bad!
I hit three milestones yesterday. I'm on spring break so I'm bored I bought the most adorable baby book based off the story "How Much I Love You." It tells everything about the baby's first year like a story about them. Its so cute. Then I bought a tunic/shirt for maternity that I can use throughout the pregnancy and after. Its supposed to be a cute empire waist tunic but as I get bigger and take up more material it will be a perfect maternity shirt. Lastly, I did 45 minutes of cardio at my dance class today. Its the first time I've worked out in 4 weeks. It felt good to get my butt off the couch.
I hope you are all doing well and it is warming up there. I live in Georgia and its flurrying. I don't think mother nature got the memo that it's supposed to be spring!
My next scan is April 13th so not to far off! I'll be 12 weeks then. I can't believe how fast its going!
Hey ladies! So happy to hear everyone is doing so well.
Jess - do you see any bump formation yet?!
I am feeling well most of the time, but seem to be a little sensitive to smells lately. Some smells really turn me off! I am always hungry, but can't eat a ton at a time. I don't have cravings, per se, but I do have a lot of food I just don't feel like eating right now. Other than that, I'm tired, but not exhausted. When I am at work, I am good, but once I am home, I am ready for a rest. I don't nap, but usually fall asleep quite early trying to watch TV.
I have my first appointment next week - but what I really want is my first ultrasound! I have a feeling that they'll book me a dating ultrasound, as I don't think they'll trust that I know how far along I actually am! haha.
We still haven't told anyone, as I was really hoping for an ultrasound first before telling parents, but if I don't get one soon, I supposed we should tell! I have to wait for a weekend that I can go visit my family, as I don't want to tell them over the phone.
So, other than all of the above, I am just trying as hard as I can to not stress about every little thing... which is hard, as it's just the kind of person I am!
