I realised I haven't posted a photo of Freya, so here she isImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1408609347.062760.jpg
Sleepy after a feed! She cracks me up with her expressions and sounds.
Thank you @ purple lily! How is your little Sophie going?
Hi girls, nothing else yet just niggles here and there. Feeling a bit down in the dumps but hopefully it's not too much longer now. Need to try and stay busy!
Freya is so sweet
Just a quick update. Baby boy born 21/8 weighing 3.67kgs. Feeding right now and just gorgeous.
Very calm birth, will come back and let you know what happened when I get a chance.
Hope everyone else is doing well.
I don't have very good news, I won't go into too much detail because I'm exhausted to be honest, but it looks as though I may not be able to home birth. I have spent the last few days absolutely out of my mind stressed and in and out of hospital and scans. At the moment the hospital will not sign me off to home birth as the amniotic fluid around the baby is on the lower end of normal. Baby is totally fine and estimated 3.3kg (they thought she had growth issues but she is fine).
At the moment trying to cross my legs and NOT go into labour until I can get a second opinion on Monday.
I have gone from excited to birth my baby at home to facing possible induction with constant monitoring. I just can't believe it.
Obviously we will do what is best for the health of the baby but as far as I'm concerned the hospital is overreacting and just don't like home birth. Fluid levels are still within 'normal' just the low side of normal.
Please keep your fingers crossed for me
