Still doesnt seem real sometimes that i actually have a baby now!!!! Will reintroduce myself then im gonna cheat and repost what i just wrote in our other thread!!!
Im Emma 26, i live 30mins out of chch nz, with my partner Steve my 4 year old step-son Jayden (we have full custody) and my beautiful daughter Briar who arrived on 9th dec.
Hey Everyone, whoa i cant believe how hard im finding it to get on here and actually post!!! i have been trying to read posts each day, but by the time i hve done that i'm needed else where and its usually Steve or Jayden, Briar's been really easy (apart from the feeding). Think the lack of sleep and Jayden playing up is starting to take its toll, Steve and i have been arguing heaps over the stupidest things usually ends with me in tears and him going outside, so hope things settle down soon. I know jayden's attitude is because he hasnt seen his mother in over a month now!!!! we told him as much of the truth as we thought he would understand so at least now he doesnt think its our fault hes not seeing his mum, as much as she is screwed up and messes with his head i feel really sorry for the poor kid, its hurting him real bad.
Congrats to the ladies who have had there bubs since i last posted. Amber and Kel how you guys geting on???? hope your little ones make an appearance soon cant wait to hear the news.
Briar went on her 1st picnic yesterday went to a place called Mt Thomas with my parents and Jayden rode his bike and paddled in the river and Briar pretty much slept the day away in her pram, and even tho she had 2 wraps drapped over her pram she still managed to get a bit rosy on the face and i feel sooooo bad cos i was making sure she was kept out of the sun all day so i really dont know how it happened!!!
I finished my thank-you cards today just have to get some envelopes to post them off. really happy with the way they turned out.
I better get going Briar is ready for her next feed and i need to see how much milk i can express this time!!!! getting about 40mls now so gone up 10mls so hopefully it keeps creeping up slowly!!!!
ps does anyone no how i can relieve Briar's bowels??? she is really struggling to the point she screams in pain and her face gets all red and the veins in her head stand out she has quite solid poos when she does squeeze them out, hate seeing her in pain!!
