Molros! Congratulations and all the very best.
Yes my c section is scheduled for the 10th of June. All is going well except that I have late onset of gestational diabetes which was picked up by my GP when I went in for a simple uti and they detected glucose in my urine. Had to do another GTT and just failed at one hour after so now have to monitor blood glucose levels. This is my last week of work! I will be 36 weeks on Friday when I finish up.
Hi lovely ladies I can't believe I haven't posted in over a month I literally just went back because I was sure I had posted more recently but I hadn't :/
So I have a spare moment in crazy mum life to write on here, it's crazy how little spare time you have I never realised even when breast feeding I can't do much or he dozes off so no phone calls or googling much I find myself having to keep rousing him.
I've been really well but also having my days where I'm struggling, just when I think o yay we are sleepin longer or feeding longer he throws a spanner in the works and I'm lost with what to do. Most recently is him no longer sleeping 4-5 hours over night and also wanted to feed sometimes 2.5hours where he's always done 3hours or more so I'm unsure wether to hold him off or just demand feed any advice??
He's smiling heaps which melts my heart and he actually laughed today for the first time.
Also still trying to find my way with doing things, breast feeding and fitting in day time naps.
He's been gaining weight like a porker and not sure if I mentioned but had his tongue tie snipped.
Literally in awe of all you ladies who do it with another little one running around!!
Won't be long and we will have more babies to welcome in this thread.
And he just woke up for a feed!!! That's my cue lol will be back shortly with personals xx
@miissalina so glad to hear from you, I was a little worried!
I don't have much advice on the feeds unfortunately, just that you are supposed to feed on demand for a while but I can't remember how long for! Depends who you speak to. My little guy was never a big feeder (but frequent). He is incredibly fussy and still doesn't eat much now at 3.5 yrs old and is quite skinny : / but is perfectly healthy. His cousin doesn't stop scoffing (18months old) and will eat anything. It always amazes me to see how different children are even at such a young age.
Are you still around @frogpossum? We are coming to the UK over christmas, I am pretty worried about the long flight and driving around in the middle of winter with a baby and 4 yr old. My parents haven't met my son yet. It's going to be a bit painful as my mum is in a home with dementia and schizophrenia and my dad is a hermit living in a tiny one bedder in a grotty part of london. So not sure whether to go for three weeks or two. There must be some things to do with two small kids in the middle of a British winter?! How are you going in Ireland?
@Bongley how have you been feeling, has the morning sickness settled down?
I absolutely hate the cold so I can't imagine how it must be over there, hopefully it's a nice experience visiting ur parents
Yep I'm still here @Bongley. I'm just back in Ireland after 6 weeks in Australia. I flew both ways with 5 year old and 15 month old by myself! If your going over Christmas there should be heaps to do. Even though it's cold the kids love the lights and Christmas festivities in the streets. It really is magical and there is heaps on for families. Also they have really cheap warm clothes or snow suits here everywhere for the kids so they are always warm. I picked up great ones from tescos!
With flying my advice is check if your bubs will be too big for the bassinet before you go. Corry was but they still sat us there. The arm rests don't come up in those seats so we could spread out. On the next flight I asked to be moved to seats where the arm rests can be lifted and they gave us a row of 4 seats to ourselves so Freya and Corry could spread out flat and sleep. Also specially request a child meal through the airline or you won't get one! The baby gets nothing. I took heaps of fruit and vegemite sandwiches to get the kids through. Good luck!
hi to everyone else. I've been reading along and enjoying all the great news!!
Hi everyone just a short update from me. Af arrived today so this is officially day one of our journey for number two. Let's hope it is a short one! @Bongley sounds like a difficult trip but I think one day you will be glad you made it. As @frogpossum said, the U.K. Does Christmas well so try to get out and enjoy some of it in between the family stuff.
@frogspossum sounds like an interesting travel experience you had how was it being back in Australia? Loving the Warner weather I'm guessing, it's just starting to get cold and I hate the cold so I'll be living with my heater on lol going up the coast this weekend for mums 50th so I'll make the most of everyone watching him while I catch some zzzz's lol funny how that's the only thing I'm looking forward to on a holiday. @Bellydance good luck for ur cycle it's so exciting watching everyone cycle again xx
