    Yes Jelly ha had her big beautiful girl!! So glad for her.

    I didn't update here yet so here it goes:

    Georgia Susie Schlamp was born on June 21 at 11:46pm. Weighed 7lb13oz, after the dr broke my waters since I was a week overdue. The oxytocin they had started me on did nothing but the waters breaking got things going fast! My one complication is a 2nd degree tear but I think it's healing nicely.

    I can understand wanting to give up on BFing, but my milk isn't even in yet so I'll wait and see. Formula just fills her up so nicely and zones her out, to do the same with colostrum/early transition milk takes like 50 mins of feeding! Then a half hour after to change her diaper and settle her, and then repeat again in an hour pretty much!! So much work. Hopefully milk will need a little less than 50 mins and leave her less fussy so she'll settle quicker. Hopefully milk is here today!!

    Last night I got to put dd1 to bed. She hugged me and said "best friend". Made me cry and realise just how important it is to maintain our bond.

    Now I'm sat cuddling dd2 while she sleeps peacefully on me.

    Love and quality time is more important than where the milk comes from. I already feel closer to dd2 and so much happier with how we are working as a family.

    Just a mw and health visitor to deal with now!

    Back from 40wk midwife app, baby is 3/5ths engaged so not much different to two weeks ago.

    Booked in for sweep next Wednesday but not 100% decided if I want it yet.

    Overall feel a bit crap, don't know why really. Think I hoped they were going to say "1/5th engaged, any minute now he'll be out! Yes the period pains and backache are are definite sign"

    My wishful thinking hey!

    Midwife said not to read into it really as he may not move now until I'm in full labour which is really normal.

    Had a very hot curry tonight, I'm not really a believer in things that bring on labour but OH thought it would be fun to try it! I can't imagine it helping...

    I've had a really lazy morning and feel a bit guilty about it, yesterday I was shattered after not sleeping so after actually having a good sleep last night I turned my phone off and stayed in bed till 11.30am! I'm now on the sofa in pjs watching tv and have no intention of doing much.

    I don't want to encourage myself to stay overdue by being lazy, do you think I might be? I've not bounced on my ball, not cleaned, not been for a walk etc.

    Anyone else having some lazy days prior to labour starting? I feel like I need to rest up and reserve some energy.

    I have been active all through pregnancy, prob more than I was pre pregnancy!

    Just had a bout of diarreah, wonder if it might be a sign of labour coming??

    Is this a good indication do you think??

    Anyone have any baby blues?

    What kinds of things are you sad about and if you're through it how long did it last? I know 6 weeks is normal to have the adjustment and anything longer isn't normal apparently.

    No baby blues here, but I've had loads of moments where I look at her with tears in my eyes cause I can't believe how much I love her and cant believe how little and defenceless she is, she's my perfect rainbow baby. Anyone else feel this too?

    ive had baby blues, but more about realizing that i will never experience pregnancy again, never feel the hiccups or kicking or hear the little heartbeat... and this will be the last time i ever have newborns, and this time flies by. i cant believe the twins are a month old already.

    pretty sure i might be getting AF already too which totally sucks!

    Wow, does it come this quick? My bleeding is stop/starting but wasn't sure if it was normal. DH refuses sex with me until we know for sure I'm out of the fertile window, how long are we super fertile for?

    I have baby blues... probably more than just that. I cry sometimes for no reason, and sometimes I just look at him and feel so overwhelmed with love and worry that I will let him down. I think a lot of it is that I wanted to breastfeed so bad and planned to and haven't been able to at all. I feel so guilty about it and like he didn't get the best :( Now he has started to get a bit colicky in the evenings and I just feel so responsible. I know that is silly...

    hello girls iv been off here for a while. missed yall. hope all is well. gotta catch up, in between night shift feedings i guess. lol my little angel was born on the 25th she weighed 8.6 pnds and 19 in. long... 13hr labor. i got sick at every contraction so i was miserable. had the back labor as they call it. but over all im doing ok after delivery. while at hospital i feel when getting out of shower from slippery floors so im in pain from that and the epidural and stitches. my little one is breast feeding so well. im actually ingoreged and having to express milk by hand to not get sore. til she catches up. her sugars were low when she delivered due to me being sick all day and so they made me give her 20mil of formula after each breast feeding to make sure her sugars were up in the first 24hrs. i cried but did what i was told. but now all is well and she is breast feeding like a champ. never give up.
