    The twins are now 5 and a half weeks old and doing really well. They have finally made it over the 3kg mark and are now sleeping four hours between feeds at night which is great for this mummy 😀

    Looking forward to seeing all the new newborns soon!

    @SugarBerry, has that little bubba of yours shown anymore signs of saying hello soon? Are they still considering a ceasar for you tomorrow?

    Hi everyone, sorry the past few days have been a whirlwind, finding it hard to keep up with everything!

    Bubs has arrived! Liam Robert arrived via emergency csection on 20 February! He is a great weight for his gestational age of 35w5d, weighing in at 2.7kg or 5.9p! Although he has since lost alot of weight he is still doing ok. He is in special care nursery and as lve been bedridden l only really saw him 2 times since he was born but last night l was able to get up and visit him for feeds and start the skin to skin cuddles.
    A quick birth story, warning its not too nice so l hope l dont freak anyone out!
    My csection was horrid, in the end he had to come out quick quick, my labour started and with each contraction his heart rate dropped so we were down in theatre within like an hour.....no time for an epi so they did a spinal block which apparently is faster, but it only numbed my left side and hardly numbed my right side, they started the csection and l could feel them cutting me so they tilted me a bit to my right to see if the block would move across and then they tried again, l still could feel them cutting me, was so awful and distressing! After that they had to knock me out completely and do the csection under a general. Recovery for me was a nightmare l was there for 3 hours before my pain was under control.
    I didnt get to see Liam until l was wheeled past the special care nursery on my way to the ward.....thankfully l did get to have a 20 minute cuddle a few hours later.
    Ive been on the biggest cocktail of drugs so lm a bit out of it still so l hope that all makes sense!

    Hope everyone else is doing well!

    Hi Everyone, congrats on all the new babies :-)

    I haven't had time to do anything since baby has been born, i had no idea it was going to be this hard & crazy! India was born 10th Feb via C section. We have not been able to breast feed at all since day 1 and it has been so devastating. After being in hospital for 5 days and with at least 15 different midwives advice we checked out with still no success. Since being home I have been trying to get her to latch during day time feeds and in the meantime pumping and feeding her with a bottle. I have seen a private lactation consultant and still no success. We have no idea why, it might be my flat nipples but we have tried nipple shields, syringe feeding, pumping before latching and nothing is working. I feel like such a failure as this whole journey has been so hard, first with the infertility, then the C section and now she is here I can't even feed her and we both end up in tears every feeding. Anyway hopefully everyone is doing better than me at the moment and congrats on everyones deliveries xx

    Yeouch sugarberry!! I'm glad he arrived safely in the end though. They let my pain meds start to wear off between my move from recovery to the ward due to delays with a shift handover. It is the worst pain ever and took a good 24 hours to play catch up and keep it under control. Make sure you kept up with the drug schedule they set, even hit your call bell to remind them if they don't turn up on time. Even if you think you're starting to feel better, trust me, keep up the meds!

    Hopefully he is out of special care soon x

    Congrats @SugarBerry and @LisaMaria.

    Sugarberry, what a horrible experience for you
    Hopefully it's all smooth sailing from here for you both!
    @LisaMaria try not to be so hard on yourself. You're amazing and strong and India is lucky to have a mumma who cares so much.
    You are far from a failure! Sounds like you are doing all you can to try get breastfeeding happening, and if it doesn't, while you might be disappointed, you are in no way letting your Bub down. Everyone has a different path with different challenges. I have no doubt that every decision you make/have to make will be the best for your child. Love is the main thing - and it's clear you've got that bit down pat!

    ps lovely baby names guys! Xx

    Congrats on the new bundles of joy! Sorry to hear about your rough experience @SugarBerry but so glad the little man eventually arrived safely.
    Haven't been feeling the greatest as of late and a bit concerned I may have retained some placenta (if that's possible after a C section) I hardly bled for the first week, then a week of nothing, to now getting smashed, bright red blood and clotting. Can't get into my GP in next couple of days but I'm taking Zarli to get a referral on Wed for specialist to do tongue tie so if still not great I will ask GP about it then.

    A bit of 3 weeks difference... The morning of the day I had Zarli to 3 weeks post. Haven't done anything special to loose the weight as I was mainly all baby.
