Hi wow already new thread and thanks for list twinklegreen must have took you ages.

thanks everyone for advice about bf.HV came today and Nathaniel is now 9lbs 1oz from 8lbs 10oz so am relaxed now as he obviously getting enough.He`s got funny spots on his face and HV thinks its start of eczema which is shame its starting so early.Not sure whether to try and cut food out and see if it makes a difference.

Hope more of you waiting will be popping soon.Off to bed now x

princessmel Tue 20-Oct-09 22:10:07

Thanks for adding the early and late dates Very chuffed!!!

I am off for another uncomfy night's sleep

Oh before I do , I agree that Metatium(sp) cream is fab - it stains stuff yellow so be careful though.

HMHB - didn't really leave MN for long to give birth, let alone after wink

Sugarkane Wed 21-Oct-09 00:09:15

Congrats to HalfMumHalfBiscuit on the birth of Bethan Rose (from previous thread)

littlepea72 Wed 21-Oct-09 09:02:18

Loving the title of the new thread!! Its great grin

Well done to any new mothers....hope you are all ok.

God i wish someone had told me to get up an hour earlier, trying to get DS to school, and forgot about the baby! Was so late, had to get her changed, into buggy etc.....so late lol..didnt think 1 more could cause so much panic in the mornings.

Anyone else having problems with crying? Faith, when sleeping is great, when awake, just wants to cry! Night time is the worse, and DH has had to start sleeping in spare room now to get sleep, so im now one of the living dead. Nothing seems to be able to stop her.

Right...cup of coffee & then back to the school for yet another meeting. But at least we are closer to finding out what is wrong with DS, but i could do with just putting my feet up!

kowaikiwi Wed 21-Oct-09 09:41:03

Hi all, glad I found the new thread.

Sadie May entered the world 9 days late at 10:49pm Monday night weighing 8lb 9oz. Not quite the birth I wanted (but how many people get one of those!) and I think it freaked DP out a bit but we are all fine. Sadie has a full head of hair and is absolutely gorgeous, even when she cries!
Will post more later once I've had some sleep...
Congrats to any other new mums and babies.

Sugarkane Wed 21-Oct-09 10:30:13

Congratulations to kowaikiwi

NewbeeMummy Wed 21-Oct-09 10:41:03

Hi all, not been on here for over week as had nothing really to say other than feeling fat miserable and uncomfortable, so decided not to bore you all with the details.

Congrats to all of you that have had new arrivals and thanks so much for the birth stories, the good, the bad and the ugly, they're really useful to read.

Finally due today so hoping that the cramping, back ache and inability to get comfortable actually means something (fingers and everything crossed - well not my legs, I want this baby out now)

Am currently burning an entire battery a day with calls and texts asking "Any News?" think I may change my message to if there is any news I would have told you

Fingers crossed for all those due today and overdue. hoping there are some signs of imminent arrivals.

sammysam Wed 21-Oct-09 10:42:45

Morning all!

Mornings are a nightmare!!! Don't think i'll ever get dd1 to pre-school on time grin mind you I did have trouble when I was pg so no chance now!!!!

Congratulations kowaikiwi!!!

Would love more car reccomendations smile

Will try and pop back later to write what I wanted grin

I can'r believe how many people have had their babes early! I am third from bottom of the list and my DD1 was 11 days late so I guess I might be the last one to pop!!! I am so scared this time around

hackneybird Wed 21-Oct-09 12:59:15

Loving the new thread title, smallone, Twinkle, thanks for taking the time to set it up. I'm pleased we are still all together.

Still no news from me, I am now 40+6. Am trying to remain positive and banish thoughts of failed inductions and emcs from my mind. I am starting to feel really frightened.

Am now so enormous I am finding it really hard to get around and am incredibly uncomfortable. I feel as though I am becoming a bit mentally unhinged with it all. A day on the sofa awaits.....

Many congrats dizzytrout! Another early oneenvy. And to you too Kowaikiwi - how did you cope with being 9 days late?

Congratulations HalfMumHalfBiscuit Dizzytrout and Kowaikiwi*

*newbeemummy
hackneybird and ronniemummy hope its not long to go fir you now.

littlepea oh yes,Joseph has the mad crying fits as well-see below.

Pretty grim morning here, Joseph had a colicky meltdown at 4.40am and then again at 8am.First time DH had really heard them and he got really upset. He took him off in the car and that sorted it but we were both shattered. Registered the birth so Joseph is all official now.

DH always calls in on his mum on the way to work and at 12 I got a call from her, v concerned asking if I was ok and then if the baby was ok and that she'd take him if I needed a break. Its like she thinks I can't cope, I'm just tired ffs. She has had a massive hand in looking after my neices since they were both 7 months old and even now they are there 6 days a week. I feel guilty that my own mum is so far away and am trying to negotiate this delicate situation where MIL (who is lovely btw) understsnds thst he is just nanna and not carer. SIL keeps ringing up to see when she can bring her girls round to see Josdeph and I just want her to give us some space. Sorry to rant, I'm just knackered.And I do know she's trying to be helpful.

CalypsoFramboise Wed 21-Oct-09 14:35:00

congratulations to dizzytrout, kowaikiwi and Halfmumhalfbicuit

HMHB sorry to hear that your stitches hurt so much, mine did too - best advice m/w gave me was to shower (a bit like a bidet wash) my privates with tepid water EVERY time I went to the loo - they healed very well and very quickly and at 2 weeks were almost no bother at all.

dizzytrout you are absolutely NOT a faliure! Well done for trying for 3 days, that must have been very stressful and your tears are completely understandable {{HUGS}}, no-one should EVER feel bad about not breastfeeding for any reason whatsoever, I'm sure little Emily Mae will be just fab either way

twinklegreen bravo for updating the list!

womb noises for sleeping!
littlepea sorry to hear Faith is crying so much. Annalise doesn't really cry (just sounds like she's a dying banshee when sleeping - not sure which is more frustrating!). DH has made it his mission to find ways to get A to nod off fast, and we've found putting her moses basket under the extractor fan in the kitchen extremely effective as it mimics loud womb noise. He's also downloaded ambient womb noises from cantonbecker.com - sends A into a very deep sleep very fast!

newbeemummy & hackneybird sending you both very strong postive labour vibes! x

Annalise seems to be developing cradle cap, saw a baby with really bad cradle cap at busy babies yesterday. really shocking, poor mum was obviously upset by it Anyone have experience of this - whats best to do it avoid it getting worse?

osteopath Someone mentioned a school in Farringdon, London - please can you be a bit more specific? Only know the osteopathy school in Southwark, and would love to try to address Annalise nocturnal wretched noises!

Have a good afternoon everyone X

twinklegreen Wed 21-Oct-09 16:19:23

calypso you can get cradle cap cream on perscription from the HV.

Congratulations dizzy, kowaikiwi and hmhb

Congratulations to Flame, Halfmum, dizzy and kowaikiwi smile

dizzy-don't feel bad about not being able to BF. My nephew couldn't latch on however much my SIL tried.

littlepea-welcome to the world of us zombies. My mantra is that this phase will pass. grin Sleep deprivation is turning me slightly mad. How can such a little person turn my life upside down so much?

HT-keep strong and say no to anything you don't want.

Big yawn wave to all.

HappyTangerine Wed 21-Oct-09 18:04:35

Right, feel half human now. Drum roll please...Joseph slept in his moses basket earlier for 45 minutes! I didn't know what to do with myself-was so busy watching him in amazement that I forgot to get some shut eye.

HC Thanks for the empathy. Yawning with you-when I typed my earlier typo filled post, I dropped off to sleep with my finger (rather appropriately on the z key) Woke up with a start to find I had 70+ lines of zzzzz to delete!

HMHB Pain from the stitches is shocking isn't it? I took a glass of warm water in with me each time and poured as I weed-it helped a lot.

dizzy pleae don't feel bad about the bf. You tried(and well done for trying) and Emily will be wonderful on breast milk or formula.There is way too much pressure on women to bf these days

Littleblessing Wed 21-Oct-09 18:07:30

Hey all
Will try some better typing with this post. I am now 40 + 2 staring +3 in the face. I feel soo fed up today and I'm only 2 days late but really felt baby would bed here by now. DS1 was 5 days late and I never felt this fed up when I was waiting for him to arrive. I just can't shift this bad mood today maybe its just as I'm so uncomfortable!

So jealous of all you lovely ladies that have your lovely newborns to cuddle and wonder at. Congrats to you all!

FlameHasAnotherChick Thu 22-Oct-09 10:04:26

Littleblessing - the foul mood is still very very fresh in my memory. I took a very grown up approach of lots of glaring and crying

littlepea72 Thu 22-Oct-09 10:27:10

2 hours sleep last night, sick after every feed, dont know what is wrong with her. DH is in spare room & getting sleep, he might get a bucket of cold water round him tonight! wink

HappyTangerine Thu 22-Oct-09 13:11:37

littlepea Could it be reflex?Maybe have a chat with gp or hv. I have a thread going in "sleep" which has had a lot of helpful suggestions for sleep deprived mums of newborns.

I left Joseph with MIL this morning while I went to dentist. 1 hour and 1 root canal later, I picked him up, had really missed him!

Miracle of miracles, he went down in the moses basket for an hour yesterday afternoon. I didn't know what to do with myself. We also got a bit more sleep. Massive improvement since the cranial osteopathy.

Am wondering what to do re moses basket and sleep. Joseph is already starting to roll onto his side when I lay him down, hates being swaddled and likes to fling his arms about a bit before he goes to sleep. In the moses basket, his arms hit the sides and he seems to get frustrated. Do I try him in his cot? Its huge in comparison. I really want an Amby but DH thinks it will be a waste of money as there's no guarantee he'l sleep in in.

HumphreysCorner Thu 22-Oct-09 13:41:46

littlepea complete symapthy with you, Matthew was on an every half hour wake last night, all down to terrible reflux so being hungry still. My DH is not allowed in another room, share and share alike and all that. grin

HT-leave Matthew on the sofa and the other day he had managed to roll on his front and was happily asleep curled in a little ball and cried when I turned him over. Infact, he is happiest asleep on my chest face down with his feet curled under him. Hope your teeth are not too sore. Will have to check out your sleep thread as I have forgotten what sleep is. grin Oh and PMSL at your 70 lines of zzzzz'z, made my day that did. smile

LittleBlessing-a foul mood is a sure sign of imminent labour for me. On the night I went into labour I lost it with DD1 and DH, infact DH stormed away from the tea table and told me I would be going it alone when I had the baby. Little did he know 1 hour later we would be on the way to the hospital.

Anyone else due this week? Can't believe Matthew is 3 weeks old today, where does the time go?

Big wave to everyone else. Better go as sicky, pooey boy needs a feed.

HC

HalfMumHalfBiscuit Thu 22-Oct-09 13:59:31

littlepea - not much sleep here either last night. DD keeps falling asleep on the boob (despite me prodding and poking her constantly) and as soon as I put her in the cot she wakes up and wants more. Seems to be feeding for AGES. Up at midnight, 2.30am and 5.30am for an hour each at least. I will defo need a nap today.

DH in same room as us, borrowing my eye mask and asking 'has she gone to sleep now?' after I've done 1hrs breastfeeding and just put her down. Thanks DH.
