    MCB - don't worry re-night positions and breast feeding. Once you two get the hang of it, which was a few days for DD luckily, you'll be able to do it in your sleep! Cute DF is so clucky too!

    AFM - not much happening. Just when I think maybe I'll take a day or two off from the MS pills, I wake up and 3:30 and run to the bathroom and throw up water. How unfair is that? The most benign thing you can put in your mouth and every 2 weeks that's the vomiting trigger! I can start to see the babies kick now. Funny to watch 2 different places on my tummy go up and down.
    Aw hugs squiggs xx

I actually got more from watching YouTube videos of people demonstrating feeding real babies. Im not expecting to get much out of it this time, just got some questions I want to ask the LC that are specific to my situation as I had terrible feeding issues with DD that Im trying to prevent this time so want to put strategies in place early on while in hospital too to try to prevent issues again. Im not saying that people shouldnt go to them, I just feel that trying to "remember it all" just puts too much pressure on yourself now (I speak from experience here cos its what I tried to do last time...). I remember being shocked at just how simple it seemed in the class - boob out, position, baby to open mouth, bring baby to breast...... yet the reality in the early days it was like trying to wrestle with a crocodile. Arms and legs going everywhere (and not just DDs!!) screaming, wriggling, mouth snapping baby.... arrrghhh such a contrast!

    My suggestions for 1st time Mums (feel free to ignore, but its things I wish I had known before DD):
    - Relax, get what info you can to be informed now rather than going in blind but dont expect to have all the answers. I found that once I had a real baby, the sleep deprivation and overwhelming hormones caused me to forget everything I had learnt in class anyway!!!!
    - expect to hit speed bumps along the way because no matter how natural breastfeeding is, it doesnt always come naturally to mums and babies!!! It is a learnt skill! (and not all babies can b/feed despite what people say).
    - Every baby is different, what works for one doesnt work for another
    - HARRASS the midwives or see if you can see a LC when you are in hospy once you have had bubs. Help with positioning will probably benefit you much more then with a real live baby.
    - Enjoy it, dont stress over times, how much they are feeding etc etc. If baby has wet nappies, is gaining weight and is content, then you are doing a great job.
    Im sure you will be fine
    Thanks for the tips Waiting very much appreciated
    I have watched a few videos on breast feeding and I found them quite informative which is good. I'm much more of a hands on learner and I don't except it to be easy! Definitely not like they show in movies anyways

    I'm looking forward to the classes just to see what they say, who else is there and just getting out of the house to be honest haha. DF just wants to feel included I think as he misses a lot being at work. Luckily the baby is kicking stronger now and he feels her a lot but he always says he wish he could feel it like I can.

    Not like this and it was gone by week 14. I went from 8mg twice a day to 4mg once a day. So it's much better. It's just when I think, hmm, maybe I'll skip a day and see if I can make it through is when I have that first sip of water in the morning and it comes back up. Fortunately I am fine after that and just take a pill and I'm fine the rest of the day. The joys of extra hormones.

    My midwife suggested he come along even if he just sits off to the side.
    hope your back feels better! Nothing worse than not being able to move properly.

    Im wearing pink undies! No point wearing lipstick around the house
    My BF class was women only. Hubby learnt a lot about BFing from the midwives during our hospital stay. He was great when we were home and Sienna wasn't latching.
