Mally Mabel milky chops...
Mally is 10 days old today (how???)
Yesterday, I rang the women’s hospital because I had a persistent headache and my bladder hurt when I weed. I also felt exhausted and rather overwhelmed by everything. Mally is easy - she sleeps and boobs like a pro, rarely cries and, at night, only wakes at 2ish and then 6.30ish. I’m very lucky. However, I’ve not really rested since I came home and expected a bit too much of myself (going for forest walks and hoovering/cleaning straight away).
They told me to come in. My blood pressure was a bit high (140/92 - mine is usually on the low side) and they could tell I was struggling. Because I had a lot of input during pregnancy, there is a care plan in place for me postnatally, so I was readmitted. Initially, I was going to go home today, but they have advised that I stay here another night because my perinatal team will be in touch tomorrow. My husband is coping well with the toddlers and, even though I miss them all so much, I was so stressed out and it was having a big impact on Finlo, so I’ve decided to take the rest being offered.
I have an en suite room to myself and the staff leave me alone unless I need anything. It’s so peaceful. I’m so lucky to have such a wonderful team.
How is everyone else doing?
I know from the FB group that many of the babies are here now, but wondering who else is still pregnant and how you are doing. Hope everyone is well
Great to see you're doing better
Ellie, it sounds like it's just what you needed little mally is so precious! It's great she's a good sleeper. Lyra isnt too bad either!
Glad to hear your doing better Ellie.
