    April is definitely surging with girls (another icsi princess here!) but I think our thread will even out over May & June.

    So thrilled today that Annabel weighed in at 4.07kg! I can't believe she's gained over 1kg in 3 weeks. I'm so grateful for being able to top her up with formula - wonders of our modern world hey?

    Doc says my milk supply will likely dwindle early since it's never really filled bubs quota, but reassured me that I have done everything possible to try to encourage it - I can't force my body to do something it simply won't. The colostrum she's had though and every bit of breastmilk I've been able to give too has done her the world of good.

    I'm still breastfeeding and will as long as I can, but now I've adopted a much more relaxed attitude - for me it's become more about spending that special time with my little girl rather than her primary source of nutrition. She is thriving and I feel blessed to have had the chance to breastfeed at all

    Thanks Annerley very happy how things are going. Baby shower was great we got lots of beautiful gifts. Still have to buy a few things like a baby monitor and some clothes , bibs and cloth nappies. I think people stayed away from clothes as everyone was saying how hard it was because we don't know the gender lol

    Riss: ICSI here but baby's sex is unknown :-)

    congrats ngaiz and welcome baby Lexi :-)

    arlais is glad things are working out with the formula and that Annabel has gained weight.

    Berra congrats on putting your feet up and being on may leave. Hope your hips and leg pain settles.

    Sorry if I have missed anyone but I better get ready for work or I will be late again lol

    Ngaiz congratulations! It would be crazy to go to sleep and wake up seeing dp holding your precious bundle!

    ICSI here as well but gender unknown I have a growth scan this afternoon at 5, they want to check on minions size as i was measuring 40 at 36+1 and they want to see if its actually bub or if its the bottom of my belly adding to the sizing. (All my *belly cellulite has traveled to the front bottom of my belly for some reason and is just sitting there and going hard and painful. They said it will go away after labor though fx). So hopefully i can avert my eyes from spoiling the gender surprise!

    Good morning everyone.

    We had a pretty good night but I'm still feeling a bit wiped out from the GA. Waiting for my catheter to be removed so I can have a shower. Sitting on my puppy training pad isn't as bad as I thought it would be, lol.

    Anyway, after two spinals I could still feel my lower half and had full control of my legs. Almost half an hour later I was still able to lift them 2 feet off the table. I bawled my eyes out when they said GA wad the only option. I swore I would never be the person to say I was upset that my birth didn't go to plan but I just feel ripped off right now. But she is here and we are both well.

    My not so little chubby chicken.

    From what I'm reading not much in labour goes to plan and I'm sorry to hear you feel upset by your experience but look at that beautiful little girl who made it safely into the world xx

    Lactation Cookies taste YUM!! Made some this morning, similar to anzacs in taste. I left 1 tray in oven longer so more crunchy and don't taste as sweet. Keep size small and leave space to spread, mine kinda joined together
    Dh had to try 1 or 2. Told him to be careful how many he eats or he might start lactating too
    The recipe should come with a warning as they are quite addictive


    Erin managed to latch on and suckle off both breasts at last feed for 10mins each side, using nipple shields. So happy right now but I'm being realistic that this might be a one-off. I'm going to try again at next feed and see how we go. Maybe it was the cookies I ate first Started her off with a bit of ebm, bottle fed whilst holding her very close breast, skin to skin, paused for a burp then placed shield and let her "search" for it. I found me leaning backwards propped up helps stop her head dropping back so much as she's not having to fight gravity, good tip from nurse yesterday. She's a noisy eater so I could actually hear some go to her stomach If I can get Erin to latch and suckle properly with the shield every time, then the trick will be to gradually take away the shield until she gets used to the feel of my nipples. Not really concerned about this and not sure if I will even try.

    I have a PPL question for those in the know...

    I filled out the form online and got told to take the proof of birth into centrelink. I now have the proof of birth but it is basically the whole form again. Do I have to fill it out again or can I just take it in as is cause I did the rest online?

    Thanks ladies!
