Marking my place although I have quite a few weeks before I'm due.
Thanks for starting the thread hayley. So exciting that the first babies are arriving; I remember when you were one of the early ones for our April 2012 group!

Wanders in, bemused and oddly shy. So, er, this is what it looks like on this end then? Electronically it's quite similar, really..

mummytobejuly2014 Thu 12-Jun-14 23:30:18

I did think I was going to be very early this time round (especially when I was in hospital at 22 weeks and being told my cervix was already very short, but now I reckon I'm going all the way and will be one of the last to join this thread sad (due 24th)

Sparky321 Mon 23-Jun-14 11:07:02

So how's is everyone? are you breast feeding? I am and it seems to be going well at her 1st weigh in after birth she has only dropped from 5lbs 6oz to 5lbs 4oz. How many times are you waking during the night?

liquidstatehasrisenagain Mon 23-Jun-14 15:01:32

Message MrsB20** (cant remember the year) and she will send you an invite to the facebook group. Its private so you can post pics!

congrats to all new mums!!

elliejjtiny Mon 23-Jun-14 15:04:30

Yep, I'm breastfeeding. So much easier than expressing like I did with DS4. DS1 is very impressed that I'm doing it without the pump! Usually waking every hour until 3/4am and then getting about 4 hours so not too bad.

1st july baby, Rosie 5 lbs 12 on 7th June, breast feeding, and weighed in at 5lbs6, then 5lbs13, getting weighed tomorrow but i can definitely see a difference. Dd1 was 7lbs13 and Rosie still seems so so small! She gets up for feeds at 2 then half 4, total bliss was up more when pregnant! She is such a content soul! I know this sounds silly but i was the same first time, it must be hormones but i miss being pregnant. I packed away all my maternity clothes yesterday and cried, even although i couldn't be more smitten with Rosie! God knows what state i will be in when i know its my last baby, planning for 4 but dh has requested a break so we can factor in a holiday. 2 babies in 2 years so far haha!

Hello - I had a surprise arrival on Sunday. Baby Isaac Woodthorpe roberts, born 36+5, 6lb 11.

Although he was good to get going with the breast feeding, ans settled well in between feeds, I'm now on my second night of almost continuous feeding - shattered, with v sore nipples. Off to hunt some breast feeding threads to see what I can learn

FoxtrotOscarBackToEconomy Mon 30-Jun-14 21:42:52

Marking my place - Sophie was born on 26rh June at 39+4 weighing 3.3kg.

Sparky321 Tue 01-Jul-14 17:56:15

Congratulations to you all lovely baby names. Hope you are all enjoying every minute xx

My little one was supposed to be a July baby too. She isn't due yet but arrived at 36wks on June 10th.
Her name is Hope and she is just a little darling. She had a rough start, needing a ventilator but is thriving now. She gained nearly a pound in weight last week.
It is lovely hearing about everyone's new bundles.
How do I join the Facebook group?

Sparky321 Thu 03-Jul-14 08:22:48

Congratulations drama what a lovely name Hope is.

Is anybody else suffering with sore nipples, the midwife gave me a sample of lansinoh lanolin in a purple pack I went to boots to get some more as it is helping but it's over £10 there were cheaper alternatives but I wondered if anybody else had tried them before I splashed out?

ellentullo Thu 03-Jul-14 08:46:49

Sparky - my midwife said that Lansinoh can be prescribed and therefore free

ismarah Thu 03-Jul-14 10:18:11

Emily Alexandra, born via ELSC June 30th at 39w. Weighed 2.79kgs / 6lbs 1oz. Came out screaming and therefore pink, been relatively quiet since. I'd wonder how long it might last but I don't want to jinx it, so I won't.

DH in deep smit.

jbiscuits Fri 04-Jul-14 03:35:27

Congratulations everyone!

Christopher was born on 30th June weighing 7lb 11. Up breastfeeding at the moment (and loving my tube of lansinoh, although also finding that being topless and letting things dry out is also helping). Still can't really believe he's mine!
