Hey March mommas. How are you ladies? Anyone feeling impending labor? Went to town yesterday with dh to get some last minute supplies. Now I feel like baby can show up. Hehe. Hope you are all well.
Sorry to hear you are sick Zoey. My husband and daughter are both sick with some cold bug. Coughing, sneezing... icky. For some crazy reason I feel pretty good even though I just had two rounds of antibiotics so I feel like my immune system should be wiped out. I've been eating lots of yogurt and taking probiotics to boost it. I've been having back pain the last few days.. also an increase in braxton hicks. Otherwise that's it. I keep thinking I'll go at night but nooope. My daughter was born 6 days after her due date.
hello hows everyone ? havent been on for ages How are all you new mummies xxx well i miss being pregnant lol, I had to be induced on thursday the 13th March due to gestational diabetes did not go well give me one tablet didint work tried another one on the friday that didint work checked me on the saturday and said i was 2 cms dilated so they broke my waters by 6pm at night they said i was only 4cms dilated they checked again at eight and i jumped up 1 cm they checked baby as heart rate was going up and down they decided to attach the heart monitor thing to her head as she kept moving from the one strapped to me tummy by ten they checked me again and some how I was undilating god knows how baby was getting stressed I was being stressed as they were poking and prodding me where only my other half should go I was in tears I was that far out of it with gas and air I couldnt remember screaming for my mum who seemed to appear out of know where bearing in mind she lives 30 miles away next thing i knew i was being given an epidural for pain relief and then told i was being prepped for surgery i was took down at half eleven the saturday night and Mary-June was born at 23.55pm it was hard to hold her as I was shaking so much I broke down in tears looking at her as at one point the consultant told me she was that stressed her hear rate dropped too low and we could have lost her I had a major bleed after she was born then another two once out of surgery and into recovery and another on the sunday afternoon.my boyfriend never left my side at all the midwives let him stay instead of walking the three miles back home even let him stay the night she was born so i could get some well deserved rest
But I would never change a thing about my little girl love her too bits she was born weighing 7lb 1 oz much lighter than the 10lb they had her at lol well I lie i would change fact that for 9 weeks I have had an infected c-section wound, which I found out last week after a swab I had a bacteria resistant to the antibiotics I had.
also has anyone here felt a bit down after c-section with not being able to do much with baby or around house i got upset all because I couldn't tidy up and I had visitors
First c-section with my son yes. It was an emergency and I felt awful for weeks if not months afterwards and developed PND. It took my ages to heal and feel normal again. Is it possible for you to go out and about and meet over mums in local baby groups? As soon as I could I got my son going to 2-3 clubs a week just so I could feel human again. Hopefully you'll heal quickly, but if you feel down for a while just mention it to the health visitor.
This time as it was planned the section recovery was quicker and was back to my old self a week later! I did have an infection, but twice daily baths and antibiotics soon fixed that.
yeah ive put my name down for a few groups where we live , Ive just started getting back to normal now the pain was awful docs had gave me 3 lots of different antibiotics before putting me back onto stronger fluxacillin which has finally started working the wounds starting to heal now so pleased about that xx
