All good here, Darcy is feeding about every 2-3 hours at night. I struggled a bit on one breast and have got a bit of a sore nipple but we are persevering.
We are both so in love with her and I couldn't be happier.
F&C, how are you after your blood loss? I get so breathless just from walking from one room to another and feel so weak. The other day I could barely dry my hair as the hair dryer felt so heavy!
Blondie that doesn't sound good Are you still on iron tablets? I'm not feeling too bad now in honesty. I've been taking it very easy though and letting my dh do all the work. I'm very lucky.
We're doing well. Dreading my dh going back to work but at least it's only for a week before he's off for Christmas. My issue is that I'm still snoring and waking my dh up so he prodes me which wakes me up. That combined with the feeds is very tiring. I'm getting a good sleep in though. X
Yes I'm on a 28 day course of iron tablets and eating high in iron food too. My oh is also amazing and not letting me lift a finger bless him. He is going back to work next week for a week which my mum is taking off then he is home for 11 days over Christmas.
My nipple just needs to toughen up too, its the forst suck that has my toes curling! The hospital have given me some sample packs of cream which I've been using.
I can't believe our beautiful girl is a week old already.
F&C - I was still snoring too and dh would wake me up to get me to stop. I finally told him I can't have him doing that because I'm already not getting enough sleep - he's just going to have to deal with the snoring. Why don't they understand that we're woken multiple times during the night?! Funny thing is, I used to wake myself up when I snored, but I guess I've been so exhausted that I'm sleeping right through it now. Good thing!
