Have added photo in file of Ds2 - Max

for those of you who don't know.

Birth :
Post 36wk scan and diabetic clinic, admitted into Kings tue , last week, 21/10/08 because blood sugars had beeen low.
Taken to labour ward to be given 2 steriod injections ( labour ward so that I could get hourly monitoring of blood sugars and other stuff). Cs planned for friday.
regularly CTG'd. Had 1st injection.
Then wed night 11pm. had ctg, started to contract. Phoned dh ( remember he is 2 hrs away)waters broke, man did they whoosh - they did say I had a lot of amniotic fluid. 2cm dilated. examined again within the hour 9cm !!!!1 now that is QUICK.
Started pushing. Told to stop. said there was a problem. lost the trace. dh had arrived. a decision was taken to go for general anathestic. music to my ears. I wasn't in real pain. But I just wanted someone to turn the light off and for my baby to be born, and for me to just wake up again !!!!

Dh had to stand outside. He said it was all very calm. He said he saw more than when he had been in, holding my hand, for my calm elcs for ds1. They got him out. He cried immediately. Everything was fine. Dh held him for an hour. He said it was th ebest time of his life EVER. He had never known happiness like it.
So ds2 was born at 1.43 am . 7lb 3 oz.

It had agreed to be sterilised at cs. But apparently I didn't mention this, so no consent form was filled in.
Funny that. Cn't imagine why I failed to mention it, when I was pushing, 9cm, ONLY concerned with the welfare of my baby.
Stupuid people. ha ha. grin

I stayed in till tuesday. They were very very short staffed. My diabetes was o.k.,. The diabetic team visited my twice daialy and were fab.

But ds2 - we have called him MAX. was sleepy, thick blood. He kept me awake all the first night. they said he had jaundice. heel pricks. then they took bllod from the vein on his top of his hand. oh my god did I sob. It was so awful.

My care was good. But overall a bit pants. because they were short staffed.

Local midwife came to take out my cs stitches yesterday. I am fine. I feel great. I feel on fire.

MW said ds2 is SEVERLY TONGUE TIED. She can't believe Kings missed this. Explains his not feeding properly, getting tirred, thus the sleepiness, exhaustion, the jaundice, becasue not feeding properly.

She said that they have a great breast feeding clinic - I went to this with ds1 actually, But MW has JUST phoned to say it has been cancelled today.
Shame becasue apparently the fab woman, is the quickest way to a referal, to get the tongue cut, by the oral surgeon.

I am very cross now. With Kings and upset bf clinic has been canceeeld.

Must go. am off to investigate what to do.

Congrats Oblomov! Welcome Max!
