Hand holding here too. Really wanted to be well rested for tomorrow as SS are paying their visit.

Izzybuzzybuzzybees Wed 27-Mar-13 03:48:02

Yeah it wasn't pleasant and completely out of the blue. I was very unlucky, it happens to 0.1% of new mums. We were brave or stupid to have another!!

We never have failed transfers either but in still hand holding which is keeping him quiet. Just need him to drop back off now. Ewan is beating away, I'm freezing and DH is still oblivious! In fact Ewans battery appears fucked....great! I bought new ones today but you need q fecking screwdriver to replace them and I am not going downstairs looking for one at this time!!! Argh!!!!

Izzybuzzybuzzybees Wed 27-Mar-13 03:49:02

Try not to worry about SS. Just be honest. They ate there to look after you and baby first and foremost.

Izzybuzzybuzzybees Wed 27-Mar-13 03:53:22

I've made it back to bed. DD will be up in 3hrs. DS better not be up a minute before her!!

Lily311 Wed 27-Mar-13 03:57:29

Signing in, O is asleep but I'm not. Grrrr

kirrinIsland Wed 27-Mar-13 04:20:16

Second feed of the night here and I'm in serious need of matchsticks.
Hopefully it's a quick one.

Hope you're all back in bed and sorry to those having trouble sleeping themselves sad

I'm here, E is awake, but quiet. I know he's awake as he keeps twatting his cot mobile. I figured if I'm as quiet as a dead pissing mouse he'll not know I'm awake so might just go back asleep! Sending sleepydust to the awake people/babies!

So glad it's sweary bastarding weds!

StuntNun Wed 27-Mar-13 04:35:43

Fourth feed here hmm I missed the dream feed because J has been very sicky today. Izzy will your J latch in at all in the day? Can you hand express just enough so there is a little milk on the nipple to entice him in, then use a breast compression to stimulate his sucking. Breast massage beforehand would help you to letdown quickly which might help with daytime feeds.

If my husband doesn't stop snoring then god help me...

ValiumQueen Wed 27-Mar-13 04:47:08

4 hours this time. Would have been longer as he self settled but I did not realise until I had got in his room. Twat!

Been awake though as DD2 is unwell. She was off her food yesterday which is always a sign. Sounds like a croupy cough. Great. Fucking cole weather.

ValiumQueen Wed 27-Mar-13 05:14:20

He is wide awake after a nappy change as it was sodden. Muppet mummy puts him down to self settle and forgets to put the fucking angel monitor on. Twat. Cue disturbing him again.

Hope everyone else is asleep. The girls will be up very soon.

luis nice thread stealing btw.

PurplePidjin Wed 27-Mar-13 05:34:37

Daisies they may very well be coming to assess your ability to protect yourselves from twatweasel. Hopefully your having to let him in will prioritise you on the housing list. What time of day do you take your tabs? I found morning minimised the insomnia, just make sure you have a bit of toast first, they're unpleasant on an empty stomach.

Please please please let this be the third feed of the night and not breakfast!!!

Sophiathesnowfairy Wed 27-Mar-13 06:42:37

I love the shipping forecast, is like a comfort blanket. confused have funny desire to have a dog and name it after a shipping area.

Northern Ireland gets colder.

Boys are managing great though like some of you said I think we could all do with some time outside. We spent an hour up at the house yesterday with the kitchen woman and honestly it was unbearable, the wind.

Today is picking the cooker, fridge etc and choosing wet walls for the bathrooms. I won't be back now till we move in as I go back to work in two weeks. Eek. So need to make sure most of the vital stuff is ordered.

In other news. Today I am 40. shock this is the first time ever it has snowed on my birthday. Other than looking at white goods ( there is a theme here as or my 30th my mum got me a washing machine (upon request) what will my 50th bring i wonder? grin ) I don't know what I am doing, but I am just happy to be with the husband.

Sophiathesnowfairy Wed 27-Mar-13 06:44:15

chasing yes, what everyone else says. See them as your aly not your enemy they could really help you out. Will be thinking of you. thanks

Catbag Wed 27-Mar-13 06:53:03

Happy Birthday sophia! thanks

PetiteRaleuse Wed 27-Mar-13 06:57:55

Happy birthday sophia and happy sweary fucking Wednesday to the rest of you fuckers.

I swear I will restart the dream feed tonight in an attempt to stop this new waking for a quick feed at three habit. Have to crack it before DH realises he is getting up far more often than I am.

In other news I can't find the remotes for either French or English TV. Stuck on Bbc Breakfast at the mo which is fine but need to find it before Heir Hunters comes on.. Yes, I am going to depend on daytime TV for my sanity today.

MadamGazelleIsMyMum Wed 27-Mar-13 07:12:21

Morning fuckers! Was going to do a training walk on Dartmoor today but the snow may mean that's not possible. May have to be South Devon coastal paths.

PetiteRaleuse Wed 27-Mar-13 07:14:05

envy gazelle

StuntNun Wed 27-Mar-13 07:19:38

Love that idea Sophia, you could have a few dogs... Come here Bailey, sit FitzRoy, Viking fetch. Happy birthday - will there be cake?

Chasing one thing my mum said was when assessing a baby's welfare they often pay disproportionate attention to whether they have received all their immunisations. So don't be surprised if you're asked about this.

Pikz Wed 27-Mar-13 07:20:32

Happy birthday Sophia xx

Morning cocksuckers!

I think he heard my crying yesterday and did 8-4-6.30 I'm in bed as DP got up with him as I think he realised I am at end of tether and as I have done every flicking night feed ever he needs to start helping.

Sorry to hear of insomnia and crap nights. They will all sleep through soon won't they!

YellowWellies Wed 27-Mar-13 07:36:15

Fucking whoop whoop fanny-wearers! 8.30-3.30 then 4-7.30 and am even going to see if I can get a cheeky extra half hour after this feed - given it was DH's alarm what woke him.

Another shipping forecast (and R4 generally) fan here - North Utsera the dog - I love it! smile

Catbag Wed 27-Mar-13 07:45:01

Weirdly, despite having listened to the shipping forecast for YEARS, the only places I can ever remember are South Itsera and North Itsera. I'd have to name my dog one of these otherwise I'd forget its name hmm Which reminds me, DH won't let me have a dog <<sad, dogless emoticon>>

Catbag Wed 27-Mar-13 07:48:38

And you can tell how half-asleep I was last night; I did not notice luis the thread robber extraordinaire pulling the rug/ thread out from beneath me. Had to go back and check this morning!

Catbag Wed 27-Mar-13 07:51:42

Ha! Fastnet, Lundy, Irish Sea. Can also name my non-existent dog one of those too...

Sophiathesnowfairy Wed 27-Mar-13 07:57:01

There is always cake in Annalong stunt!
