Hope the feeding works out Toni! It's one of my concerns too as I have big breasts. I've heard that the football hold can be easier for bubs with big breasted mums x

Toni- I hope you get the feeding sorted out soon. The ABA have a helpline, could you give them a ring for advice?
Hope you manage to get some more sleep soon, I remember that first night alone in hospital with bub and I got a similar amount. It's really tough but hope you'll feel better soon!
I managed a good hypnobirthing practice session with DH last night. He was really good, back to his old self, so think the other night was just tiredness on his part. I needed the relaxation to be honest as before that I had watched a birth documentary which brought back some bad memories. One lady had a c-section and the anesthetic made her very sick, just like me when I had Toby, so she was vomiting and felt very ill after her baby was born. Then another lady had a very low iron count after birth and needed a blood transfusion. I had a similar iron count to this lady after birth (around 7 something) but didn't get a transfusion as they said it wasn't low enough. Wish I had, because I felt so incredibly ill for over a week after Toby was born...nearly passed out one day...and I really don't want to feel like that again. So seeing all this on TV made me feel very worried that this might happen to me for a second time. I never want to feel ill like that again. But odds for a VBAC are on my side, so fingers crossed it won't happen. Plus I would push for a transfusion this time around if my iron went that low. I wonder if I did have to have a c-section, if a epidural rather than the usual spinal block would have a different effect on me? Not make me so ill? Might ask my midwife at my appointment next week.

Michelle: not offended at all. Not many people have connected the name with either show.
Rainbow: yes I am trying normal and football hold. Hopefully something works. She is also just very snoozy.
Bond: Last night was hard on my own. I really wish that DP had been here. She has such an upset belly and I was feeling completely useless. I'm glad you got a good session in with DH. Midwives here are really helpful and she isn't even a day old yet so will just keep persevering but will call someone if I'm still struggling.

Oh good, I worry about offending people a lot!
I'm sorry DP didn't get to stay with you last night, is he allowed to stay tonight? How long do you have to be in hospital for?
Hope Rivers belly gets better soon and she takes to drinking a bit better. So amazed you have a girl, I was really thinking boy for you!

Bond, that's great that you got hypnobirthing practice in. Maybe try not to watch birth shows until your bub is born. My hypnobirthing lady said not to watch anything but hypnobirths, because the others will only increase my fear and anxiety
Toni, that sux that you were in your own and DP was home. When do you get to go home? I hope River's belly settles soon.
AFM, 36 weeks today! Only 1 week til maternity leave.
