He's gorgeous! I hope you have a lovely supper this evening, even if you are a bit tentative with it! grin

Congratulations, Waves! What a gorgeous boy, love his name too smile

Hope your eating gets back to normal asap. Eat small, regular meals to begin with and let your stomach get used to food again.

Another de lurker who's read all your threads in awe... Gorgeous name, gorgeous little boy. You rule!

Beautiful, beautiful boy smile

Congratulations Waves. I've heard a lot about you on other threads and just wanted to add my good wishes flowers

Lovethesea Sun 28-Jul-13 20:09:39

Congratulations Waves! Incredible end to that chapter of your story. Here's to the next one!

Welcome Caspian, hope you get your own Dawntreader when you get older.

Must be amazing to have the nausea receeding, I'm sure it'll take a while to feel normal again but you have been so strong to get through.

Just found the new thread Waves and am so overwhelmed at your birth story. You've done amazingly. And I salute your decision to let stbxh be part of it - a tough call and one that not many people could do in your position, but definitely a mark of you being the bigger, better person. Hats off to you m'dear.

Absolutely chuffed to bits for you - and your beautiful crown Prince Caspian (I loved the Narnia books too!) is just so, so gorgeous. A truly beautiful boy.

Well done you, you fabulous lady. flowers

<sniffles a bit, quite overcome>

He's absolutely gorgeous xx

I managed some tea - really basic, a bit of breaded fish, some new potatoes and peas. With a milk shake too. I know how important it is to get calories and fluids in to aid with milk supply, so there is a very good motivation for doing my best.

I am actually exhausted now and going to bed with my gorgeous newest son shortly. I decided that it would be good spirited to let twunt bring his sons to meet their baby brother today, and they ended up staying for 2 hours. I even helped them make footprints of his feet as a keepsake. Then a couple of hours later he came back with his mum and sister who stayed about 2.5 hours. At least it is all done now, and there can be no hard feelings anywhere.

I cleaned the lounge, and did a couple of loads of washing, but just made cheese on toast for the DCs tea. I probably will do less tomorrow, just stay in my pyjamas until lunchtime.

My blissful moment was having a proper bath. No PICC line so I could properly soak, and give my left arm a really good scrub - it has been under dressings for 3 and a half months!

Thank you for all your lovely messages flowers It is so heartwarming for me.

Ezio Sun 28-Jul-13 20:54:07

Im glad you've eaten and had a good soak, you deserve it after it all.

Im pleased that tension hasnt marred little Prince Caspians first precious days on this earth x

SwedishHouseMat Sun 28-Jul-13 20:55:51

I have to say Waves - I think you are a bloody saint to have all those visitors!

bunchamunchycrunchycarrots Sun 28-Jul-13 21:01:59

I second that Swedish! But at least it's all over and done with and you can just rest now. Enjoy your sleep waves.

vole3 Sun 28-Jul-13 21:02:34

Fennel tea is good for milk supply and digestion. Oats ate also good for milk, least that's the reason I used to justify my hobnob habit smile

minkembernard Sun 28-Jul-13 21:11:26

yay..crying at your birth story.
so relieved for you although probably not nearly as relieved as you!

dark chocolate is good for all kinds of things. or slopes i tell myself and my sis says so. she is a doctor so it must be true.

MissStrawberry Sun 28-Jul-13 21:28:27

Yes yes

I am sure it is the law to eat chocolate daily after giving birth.

Forever winkgrin.

Tamdin Sun 28-Jul-13 21:34:20

Delurking to say huge congratulations! You've been so strong. Hope you and the DC are all well and supported. Take care smile

SwedishHouseMat Sun 28-Jul-13 21:51:59

It's definitely the law that you have to eat lots of chocolate and more chocolate hourly after giving birth. grin

MoreThanWords Sun 28-Jul-13 21:59:05

Congratulations and total respect for what you have achieved waves .

Caspian is a truly gorgeous baby smile

Stopsittingonyoursister Sun 28-Jul-13 22:13:29

Caspian is gorgeous, Waves, congratulations on his safe arrival. Your birth story is wonderful xx

nowwhat Sun 28-Jul-13 22:27:16

I have read all of your threads today, another one in a long line of people in awe of you and all you have coped with.

Congratulations on the birth of little Caspian, your photos are beautiful and I wish you a lifetime of happiness with him x

Jux Sun 28-Jul-13 22:36:19

Yes, dark chocolate - the more cocoa solids the better, 70%+ - is good for you. It was on tv the other night. Can't quite remember why though blush and nor can dh, but it is anyway.

So Waves, you poor old thing, you have to eat chocolate now. Aw shucks. grin

And don't go around hoovering and stuff. When people visit, you have to cuddle your little Caspian looking serene, while they run around making drinks, washing up, cleaning the bathroom and so on.

Congratulations waves. You my love, are amazing. I have never been quite so proud of a person I have never met. You have shown such quiet grace during the last few months and after all that has happened you had the courage and kindness to share your birth experience with your STBX and opened your home to his family.

I'm so glad for you that at least in this one thing he proved worthy.

Your beautiful boy is just scrumptious, you deserve every second of the joy he will bring you. DH and I have wished so many times that we could get to you, if you ever end up in north east Scotland shout up!

minkembernard Sun 28-Jul-13 22:50:41

jux iron and it keeps you regular...so more fun than iron tablets. that and apricots. and I think zinc. plus it helps alleviate coughing fits...so in fact it is good for everything and should always be taken for medicinal purposes of course!
