Elz I'm sorry for you feeling rubbish. I'm glad your DH is there for and a little cry helped your feelings. My friend was ttc for three and a half years, about to begin IVF and she fell naturally! Not that I think you need IVF- just wanted to share a positive story of ttc.
Oh Elz that made me tear up I can only imagine how upsetting it is to want something so much and still be waiting.
Like Jem a good friend of mine had been trying for a year with one loss on the way. Her and her husband were literally going ahead with some simple tests through their GP and they got their BFP. It will come to you I know it x x
Elz-I know from personal experience that nothing I can say will help. I just hope you see those 2 pink lines soon! you are very strong-I cried every single month when I didnt get a BFP starting at month 2 or 3 of ttc!!! The BFNs month after month take a lot out of a woman emotionally in my opinion, and it is no easy thing to cope with thats for sure! BIG HUGS
Thanks for all your kind words, Archie and I plus daddy are doing well. Midwife been today and she is happy, he is feeding well and feeds every 3/4 hrs, sometimes with a few little feeds in between followed by a big one and then sleeps for a good 4/5 hrs. Finding the feeding ok apart from the tender nipples but that soon goes once he is on.
I think Steve is feeling like a bit of a spare part as can't help with the feeds etc do I leave him to do all the other bits like nappy changes dressing etc do they can bond, I also leave him ho settle him once he's fed as he just smells my milk otherwise (Archie that is not Steve! Lol) and wants more, so Steve settles him which they both love.
Hope everyone is doing ok, I'll catch up on the thread soon x
So do I! The boy loves to feed and they are fine once he is on properly but boy are they sore afterwards. I think it's normal though isn't it? They aren't creaked etc just very tender. The midwife checked them and said they look fine so assume all is ok. I am worried that he isn't getting enough as he seems to feed a lot, I would say he cluster feeds, not sure if that is the correct term but he has 3/4 little feeds like ten mins each side and sleeps short periods in between or is awake and alert and then has a good 20/30 mins each side and then crashes for 3/4 hrs.
I've also noticed that his nappies aren't overly wet, I will make a note to mention it to midwife but she said you would know if he wasn't feeding because his colour would change, he'd probably be jaundicy and would be unhappy / unsettled.
I think it's going to take time to settle, am happy to feed on demand for now to make sure that he is hopefully getting what he needs when he needs it.
