Sorry for being rubbish at keeping in contact on here lately, it's all been a bit manic! Since coming home with the girls, things have been very hectic!

Generally things have gone well, although we had a four night stay quite early on at the Children's Hospital as Eva developed silent reflux and was having what they call desats, which basically means she wasn't breathing properly. All very frightening at the time, but she's sorted now. Esmé has also started to get all the symptoms of reflux, so we're off to the docs on Tuesday. It's really common in prem babies, but a real pain!

Unfortunately after a week of being at home I had to stop breastfeeding. I feel really crappy about it, but Eva wasn't putting on weight, and they were both having real issues latching on as their little mouths were so small. I felt like the breastfeeding was my one 'normal' thing to happen after having the girls, so to fail at that was really tough, but I know now I had no choice but to stop.

I've been struggling a bit to accept how things happened with the girls' birth and the aftermath. I know that lots of people have to put up with much longer stays on the neonatal unit, and much poorlier babies, but I still feel really quite traumatised by everything that happened. I hate the fact that I didn't get to see my little ones for the first 48 hours of their lives, and I hate the feeling that I missed out on so much whilst they were staying on the unit. I think it's almost only now that I'm at home with them and living a normal life that I can see what I missed out on. I know I'm so lucky to have them, but I can't help feeling sad about the way it all panned out.

Sooz and Luvbug, it sounds like you're both doing so well with breastfeeding. It's so much tougher than anyone tells you, so don't beat yourself up about needing to use a bit of formula. As long as baby is growing and happy that's all that matters.

Jo, I can't believe how grown up Felix is now!

Honeybee, congratulations! Sorry to hear you had a rough time of it, lots of hugs coming your way.

Mini, so many positive thoughts and hugs coming your way.

Cake, hope everything goes well at your appointment.

Snuffles, how are you 20 weeks already?! That's flown by! Can't wait to hear the gender!

Mojo, you're so close now! Fingers crossed that baby plays ball and gets into position.

Hope I haven't missed anyone out! Lots of love and hugs to you all.
