probably no news anymore that i gave birth lol
5/5/2011 at 10.51pm
it was long and painful!!!
i went in at 8am, by 3pm i still only had 6cm so they broke my waters
then hell broke loose, contractions came very very heavily with little time in between.
after 4 hours i had only moved up 1cm and i was sooooooo tired!!!
asked for epidural, they didn't get me one... 2 hours later OH got angry and told them it had been enough, i needed epi NOW!
15 minutes later all felt better and things moved along very fast (my body was trying to stop the labour or something)
eventually time to push and not long after that (and a little snip) there she was.
some oxygen problems though, she got stressed in the end and her saturation was a bit too low.
they gave me extra oxygen while pushing and gave her some too after she came out.
but once she was on my tummy her levels shot up to 100% as if nothing had happened.
she measured 49.5cm and weighed 3.150kg (6.93lbs... how much is that said in xlbs x oz?)
she kept me up all night after she was born, then slept all day...so it's been hard for me to recover and get the sleep i need.
spent 5 days in hospital (the norm here) and drama drama...no internet!!!!!!!
OH tried to steal it from surrounding networks but it failed lol!
she's a week old today and doing really well!
breastfeeding like a champ, although i'm going to start pumping now too so OH can give her bottles and i can get more sleep at night (also, i was ill before giving birth and somebody with a bug must have visited us bc i'm ill again, which doesn't really help with anything!)
first days after birth were agony bc of the stitches and bc i also had a huge hematoma!
well, still have but at least i can somewhat sit on a chair today!!!
first two days she slept in the big bed with me at the hospital bc of that hehe.
then unfortunatly she was put under the lamp (just one day thankgod!) bc her bilirubin levels were a tad bit too high (12.4 and cut off was 12).
ok, is all for now lol
Aww Hun well done you sounds like a stressful birthcant wait to see pics .x
^^ this was about mixing breastfeeding and bottle feeding with expressing milk.
i plan to start the same, so dad can give a feed at night, giving me more sleep (our girl asks every 2 to 3 hours and it's not like she's drinking very little at all at once).
what should i be on the lookout for?
nono, no flat tummy yet, still looked quite big untill yesterday actually.
was a bit weird, after i had her it was pretty much gone, then it was like it was swollen up again the day after.
some pictures of my little girl (they're on fb too)
day 1 (just 12 hours old or so)
mommy... this is a picture from my first mother's day
in the crib at home (my old crib and my old bedding, hence the 80s look )
She is precious TB!
Beautiful TB! Great job!
Ah well done TB, she beautiful hun.
Hope your felling better soon
When you know she's going to go say 3 hours between feeds, try and pump waaay before the next feed so the milk has time to refill. I think my biggest prob was letting DH do night feeds on weekends so I could get some rest. But I would wake up soaked in milk, plus my boobs started producing less because it wasn't used. You SHOULD pump at the same time someone else feeds her, to keep up your supply... But it kinda defeats the point of someone else feeding her bc you're not resting IYSWIM?
She's stunning, as predicted darling - well done! xxxx
she s bloody gorgeous hun - well done xx
