MissDevilMonkey - funny how babies grow up so fast. i bet it feels like time has flown since you had Blake. feels strange saying Blake without talking about my own son lol.
Zinkles - your lucky you didnt get afterpains. i did and they were horrible. you're trying to feed a newborn but your tummies cramping up....not very nice.
C84 - congrats on the pregnancy. i think its normal to feel this way at this early stage in your pregnancy. i found it hard to bond with bubby in my tummy until i saw him on the 20 week scan. and as my bump grew bigger i grew closer and closer to my son. being a mum is great and may seema bit daunting. i know it was for me, but the second he was born it all just fell into place. i remember when DS was a few days old i said to DP it felt so normal and comfortable to have DS around....sorta felt like DS has always been in my life.
BabyBlueBird - ahh good to hear from you and little James! 7 weeks...wow o wow! he looks sooo much bigger than the first photos you showed of him! really growing up fast! what a brave strong boy!
Seeka84 - Congratz!!! no hamr in asking tonnes of questions! midwives and docs are always more than happy to answer them to put your mind at ease.
we just got back from a 2 days holiday in Tauranga. i can tell you all now a 6.5hour trip in a car with a 4 month old who would rather stand than sit is not easy! and he only sleeps 45 mins at a time. so we had a screaming baby every hour in the car. poor little man. but he loved meeting his Poppa for the first time. so cute!
Zinkles and KeirasMummy! - have you started oslids yet?
We just got back from afew days away aswell. 3 hour trip in the car with the baby that hardly sleeps was interesting lol. it was good on the way there tho she slept for 2 hours..to my suprise, but coming home we made quite afew stops. and she only had 2 half hour sleeps.She loved meeting all her great great aunties and uncles and the (huge) family. my two wee cousins (12 and 6) love her to bits they cant get enough of her. every little coo she makes they have to take a pic of her and let everyone know shes being cute lol. 6 year old izzy (miss "im never ever having babies cos you have to get a great big belly and push it out your diddle") has changed her mind about babies, she said "i want lots of babies, but only girls". i love kids lol!
Solids are officially on and going well. Bub is eating all her farex, licking mummys toast lol and tasting banana. She hasnt cut out any milk feeds so her cheeks are looking even more full and chubby now hehe.
Welcome new ladies!
-i think i have heard of placenta preavia..im sure its when the embryo implants too low down in the uterus/close to the cervix so you probably cant have a vaginal delivery..but dont stress as long as baby comes out safe thats the main thing eh smile
& i was chucky the whole 9 months.
BabyBlueBird- James looks amazing! Glad to hear your doing better.
MissDevilMonkey- i dont think i did have after pains..
&Keira had the gunky erye thing going on too, it goes away. the doc said to wash it with boob milk lol.
