Do you wish you could relive it?

  1. The first few days I mean... not the birth:rofl:

    Its only been two months but looking back at pictures I got all teary. Shes changed soooo much I dont feel like I took it all in at the time I was too overwhelmed.

    yes, every day! :cry:

    worst thing is, I didnt even get to SEE my Brooke in her first few days. I have to go by pictures, videos and my families accounts of what she was like in her early days. :cry: :dohh:

    Iv learnt to enjoy every single day with her from then on-I hope you manage to do the same. It does go waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too quickly doesnt it :sad1: :hug: x x

    Yep, I didn't really get much part in the first few days as I was so ill so would definitely relive it.

    I was doing the same the other day. Looking at her newborn pictures and getting teary. She looks completely different now, it's like she's a different person altogether. I would turn back time if I could. It's gone too fast! My baby will be 1 year old before I know it. It's completely opposite when you're carrying them though aint it? It felt like I was pregnant forever! But these 4 and a half months have gone by so quick, I can't believe it. :(

    I would love to...as long as I wouldn't be ecclampsic at the same time. I was so sick the first week that I couldn't get out of bed and I have no memory (at ALL) of the first week and a half of her life. :'(

    Brianna is only 7 weeks old and I was looking at her today and realized how much she's already grown. While happy about it I couldn't help but think about her while she was a newborn and just cry :cry: So yes I'd LOVE to go back to those first couple days.

    Yes and no really.....the first few days were just a blur to me and me and my partner just felt totally out of our depth and i was suffering quite badly with depression and alls i could think was "what the hell have i done?" and Patrick just didnt sleep...at all! So i wouldnt wanna go through that again but to see him all tiny again then yes! I would like to have the last say 15mins of my labour again....it was a total blur of pushing and people talking to me and before i knew it he was on my chest but i was just totally spaced out (not of drugs) just like i wasnt me...and i refused to feel his head coming out which i really really really regret.

    totally! i wish i could go back and not be worrying about stuff - like if I was doing it right and whatever. I would go back in time and just cuddle her all day long (pretty much what I did anyway - but I'd do it without worrying).

    Definitely! The first days of her life were so amazing!

    Plus, the first 2 weeks of her life to me weren't that much hard work to be totally honest... she slept 22 hours out of the day and didn't cry nearly at all. I mean, it was a big adjustment period definitely but not that hard. Though every baby is different...
     
  19. I had it easy like that too... I was lucky

    i would, mainly just to be able to hold her breastfeeding without her being too bloody long for me to get my arms round her in a comfortable way lmao

    i miss her being really tiny, she was soooo small for the first few weeks, now shes a little fatty hehe, but i think i would relive it all, up till now cos she has learned so much and shes just amazing
