    Op went well, a little bit of panic when she wasn't breathing and moving for 5-10mins. Was very stunned. She is fine now, a little bit of panic when I was bleeding lost half a litre but managed to not need a transfusion so far. Cut is a little larger I think, but all went quite well. Very tired so cannot post a pic tonight but I will hopefully tomorrow. I'm absolutely blown away with our little girl and just love her so much.

    She is having a little trouble feeding, being small but we will get there. Thanks for all the well wishes
    Congrats KM - fantastic effort and fantastic choice of name.hope you are bearing up after the operation. cant wait for the photos

    Hi Mrs S, I didn't have any colostrum till after Bray was born, then it came through. Usually your milk will not come in until 2-4 days afterwards so don't stress. It will happen when your little miss enters the world.

    Hi Mrs S
    Don't worry that you can't see or express milk before bub is born. Use the first day or so after birth to practice the latch (you will have colostrum after the birth) and then your milk will come. This is partly why babies lose a bit of weight after birth.

    I personally would not recommend formula in the first few days if you plan on breast feeding exclusively (an not at all for the first 2 months actually while you are establishing supply - if you can avoid it). While some do (and each to their own - I am not knocking anyone's choices) often the consequences (like birth intervention - for some not all) cascade and if you don't establish your milk supply adequately because you are comp feeding it can cause difficulty - leading to the feeling that you cant bf and then onto exclusively formula feed etc. also formula feeding can cause nipple confusion, change the flora of a newborns gut (which assists with disease immunity) and as mentioned affect establishment of supply. I would recommend talking to a midwife or lactation consultant before you decide to give baby formula - IF breast feeding is your preferred option! Sorry for the ramble, there is lots of research on this, I don't want to make it sound although formula is evil! Its fine if thats wht you decode, but can e detrimental if you want to BF. Just pays to be informed. Ps: my milk came in on day 3. Good luck!

    Thank you I'm just confused as their wife wants me to start expressing now I'm not sure why she said its for the colostrum liquid gold as they call it. But everyone I have asked have said just wait so thank you I'm also not sure if its due to being induced or me having GD ???

    The colostrum even though there isn't much of it at a time is higher in energy than breast milk and that's why lil bubbas need less of it than the milk.

    Your boobs will make colostrum which is high in fat and enough. Your milk will come in on day 3-4 depending on whether you havea normal or caesarean birth. I found that sucking colostrum is enough. Babies will loose up to 10% of weight bewtween delivery and milk coming in.

    You will be fine. i had no signs of milk before delivery either.
