birth was FAB
6 hours at home, with dp and doula who were magnificent
I stood up for most of it! loved it except when the gas and air ran out

at 2 days he was feeding poorly and didn't seem right, cue 2 nightmare days of tests and treatments in hospital before he started to pick up
we had to stay in a week for him to have IV antibiotics (just in case was meningitis or infection)
we are just about recovering from the upheaval

FrannyandZooey Thu 31-Jul-08 20:45:30

ooh hello people
LL ds1 is 5 the picture of him beaming is when he came in in the morning to see us in bed and found his new brother what a lovely moment

FrannyandZooey Thu 31-Jul-08 20:47:04

my stomach is still humungous
I don't think it will ever go back to anything resembling a normal stomach, ever

yes lots of people I know assumed I was not having any more I think
I was just not ready till now - it still felt like ds needed me very intensely until a year or so ago and I just wasn't ready to have a second needy person around

FrannyandZooey Thu 31-Jul-08 20:52:13

mind you when you wait 5 years you feel farking OLD when pg with the second one
I was / am knackered
mind you I am old, maybe you are not wink

congratulations smile!
Do you know what was wrong with him? We went through the same with dd and never found out what was wrong with her. It was horrible.

Bubble99 Thu 31-Jul-08 20:53:33

Going from two to three is even easier. wink grin

popsycal Thu 31-Jul-08 20:54:37

hangs onto bubbles last post.....

franny - glad everything is ok nowe

onepieceoflollipop Thu 31-Jul-08 20:54:39

A "slightly bigger than average" gap has worked out brilliantly for us as well. (almost 4 years between them).

p.s. Franny my stomach took longer to go back 2nd time round so it will happen soon enough.

Bubble99 Thu 31-Jul-08 20:54:39

I'm still considering a DS5.

And I'm 42.
