    Well DD is above the 97th percentile for length and 90th for weight. So unless u have a big one too u should be right in 000 for at least 2 months and small bubs will still be in 000 past 3 months. Not to mention newborns can be very spewy and pooey. I regularly do 4 outfit changes a day for DD. bibs are my best friends

    Lol @gingermillie I told Matthew off a couple of nights ago, said come on that's enough we both need some sleep, felt guilty afterwards though. I had a better night with him last night and he has been awake for a little while today so hoping he will be tired tonight. I have used Infants Friend which I find good for settling his wind.
    @Essence08 yeah those feeding frenzies are tough, I usually find my boobs are quite tender afterwards even with baby attached correctly.

    Thanks @akakura for the tips. I have baby carrier, just need to start using it now, it will be so handy.

    We're in the other boat. Bubs is wee and 0000 is quite roomy on him. First stop on our way home from the hospital was baby bunting. I didn't have nearly enough long sleeve onsies in his size.

    @Nicky1977 how’s your little guy? So nice to hear you took Matthew out the other day and he was a little angel, what a good boy!!! My GD levels are more good than bad. It of course spikes up when I’ve been a bit naughty. But with 19 days to go until my booked in c-section I hope my doc isn’t too strict on putting me on any medication. I think I’m doing OK. For example, out of my 10 readings I’ve done so far this week, I’ve only been over once so far. My cold sore is still here, but slowly going away! I didn’t think I was stressed but maybe in the back of my mind I am!



    Congratulations @lileitak on little baby B, such wonderful, happy news



    One more week of work left for me!

    Sorry I've kept everyone in suspense (and worry) but poor Mummy has had not one minute spare to get onto the computer until today. It's a constant cycle of feeding, washing, crying etc and when I've had a moment to myself I plonk on the couch exhausted or fall into bed myself. DH has been great, getting up lots in the night to settle her, that I don't know how I will cope (or cope as well) next week when he goes back to work.

    Anyhow, the birth story. Baby Josephine didn't want to wait until 38 weeks to be born, which was when Dr M thought he would have to induce her. Instead, at 36 weeks 3 days, when I got up at 2.15am to go to the toilet my waters broke (these things always happen in the dead of the night). I didn't have any pain, but there was water everywhere. In my haste to get out of bed I also slammed into my bedside table, so my arm was in pain, but nothing else. We rang the hospital and they said to come in. On the way in the car the contractions started, at about 5 minutes apart. At this point I couldn't remember anything about giving birth - nothing!! By the time we got to the hospital contractions were 2-3 minutes apart - I'd remembered by now that one of DH's jobs was to time the contractions and write them down. This continued for about 30 minutes, but no-one (the nurses) seemed massively concerned, just kept doing obs. Then the contractions started to lengthen, 10 mins, 15 mins, 30 mins, until 5 hours later I realised they'd stopped. I was confused, as I thought contractions were supposed to go the other way. I was moved from the observation room to my own room, and told that since my waters had broken we weren't going anywhere.

    At this point though I remembered that we hadn't chosen a name!! DH pulled out his laptop and started reading through hundreds of names, while I vetoed them. I'd always liked Jospehine, and no others came close, so that was decided pretty quickly. The middle name was whittled down to three.Dr M came and said that a C-section would occur the next day if she decided she wouldn't come along naturally. An induction was now out of the question as my waters had broken.

    Nothing happened until 18 hours later the contractions started again on the Monday morning about 2am again, and this time they were much worse than the first day, that I thought it was actually going to happen. Same thing though, they started close together, and slowly over 8 hours became less often until they stopped. At 11am it was decided that a C-section would be scheduled for 5pm that afternoon, and frankly I was glad (if not a little scared) that finally my little baby would be here. A little later this was brought forward to 4pm and before I knew it I was being wheeled down at 3.25pm.

    DH was changed into scrubs and when he came back and we sat/lay waiting outside the anaesthetic room, I started panicing / getting emotional as my poor baby still didn't have a middle name. I was desperate that she had a name as soon as she was born, even though everyone else was saying that it didn't matter and her name could be chosen later. We quickly got rid of one of the names, and with moments to spare decided on the middle name, Jean, which is after both our Mums. I was so relieved and very happy that my little girl would have a name.

    The epidural was horrible!! Fireworks exploded in my left leg, but DH held me extremely tight and I just tried to concentrate on sitting still. However my legs remained in a bent position, well so I thought, even though everyone kept saying that they were actually straight, it was totally weird. Once the epidural was over, everything else went really quickly, and before I knew it, they were lowering the screen and letting me look at her head. The screen was really quite high on my chest, and because she was so premmie and had to go to the special care nursery I didn't get to have her on my chest or breast feed as I'd wanted, so just got a couple of kisses. In a way though I just wanted them to stitch me up and get back to the ward to start our new life together.

    Well, feeding time is just about around again, so I'll fill you all in later about baby Josephine's first ten days.
