    Hi ladies! It's been a while! I hope you are all enjoying your little bundles of joy! How are you all doing? As a first time mom these past couple of months have been amazing! I've never been so happy and so tired at the same time in my life. I am so in love with my little baby. I still can't believe she is here and she is mine! The other night I had a dream that I had just found out I was pregnant and that soon after I had a miscarriage! I woke up in tears and saw her sleeping in her bassinet next to me and realized it was a terrible dream. Can you believe that? I guess it really shows that our previous losses will always leave a scar on our hearts. Just had to share that.

    On a more positive note! Any updates? Are you adjusting well? Are you breastfeeding? Are your babies sleeping through the night? Any good stories? I'm happy to say my little one is sleeping for 6 hour stretches at night and I am getting much more rest these days.

    Looking forward to hearing from you! ;-)

    Hi rosebud thanks for the update. So sorry for the dream I just past my last anniversary was a sad and happy day. X

    I'm adjusting to life with two its very different the second time around. Isla is doing great I'm combi feeding both breast and bottle as I didn't want to pressurise myself too much like I did with Emily and gave up. I'm struggling with the bf at the moment as my milk has reduced this can happen with combi feeding. She's still gaining weight at the same rate and is 12lb 11oz now.

    She wakes most nights every three hours so not. Much sleep here plus she has her fussy nights where she cat naps most the night. During the day she fights sleep too. Wouldn't change any of it.m

    Wow, I can't imagine how busy you must be w/two kids! How many years apart are they? My daughter also weighed in at 12lbs her last visit recently. The doctor said that is a great weight. :) My supply was a little low too. I tried "Motherlove - More Milk Plus" supplement pills. They gave me the boost I needed. I'm not sure if they sell them in the UK? I have oatmeal in the mornings too.

    She literally just started sleeping 6 hrs a few days ago so she will probably get there very soon! :)

    all is well here :) I can't believe Anneliese is already 7 weeks old. I feel like I haven't even had time to really bond with her since we closed on a house when she was 8 days old and it's been non stop with renovations and moving :( and now I have to go back to work soon and leave her with someone else. I make myself cry every time I think of it. Off to shower before heading to the old house to hopefully finish cleaning it out. glad you guys are well <3

    Hiya ladies its great to read how your all getting on my ds is doing very weel a big boy at 14lb and his 3-6 month babygrows are getting snug its mad. Hes just had his first set of injections today i almost burst out crying when they did them and he screamed...he wont settle at all today so lots of mummy cuddles today. He wakes up every 3-5 hours of a night for a feed but hes slowly stretching them out. Ive never experienced tiredness like this before but its worth every second of it..i dont get it when people say lifes over once u have kids....lifes just beginning for me now ive had ds ive never been happier. :)

    Hi perpetual- Congrats on your new home! I hope you are settled in and into your routine soon. You are doing so much right now. I hope you find some time to rest and cuddle with your little one.

    Debzie- I wish I lived in the UK so I could have all that wonderful maternity leave! I hope one day my family can move to Europe. I visited Paris and London a few years back and fell in love. Everything is so beautiful!

    Hope- I totally agree with you. I've never been more tired but its totally worth it! Life just has a new meaning now. :)

    Wow all our babies are growing up, Aidan will be 9 months on the 25th can't wait for Christmas, we are blessed he's slept 12 hours right through since 12 weeks old, he doesn't sleep much in the day really but is a pain to get to bed, he fights and has to be rocked to sleep, but generally that's the only downside, we struggled really badly up until a few weeks ago with horrific reflux but he's much better now. So lovely to hear our gorgeous rainbow by as are doing so well.

    No crawling here hopefully Christmas will be gone before then so the tree isn't attacked LOL xx

    Hope are you expecting again??? Xxx
