Thank you ladies smile.gif

My birth story in brief: It started out naturally at the birth centre after 1.5 days of contractions at home that gradually built up. My waters broke on arrival and a complication arose where I needed fetal monitoring, so I was moved to the labour ward. I continued with natural birthing until 9cm and they discovered she was posterior (I'd been telling them I had pains in my lower back the whole time...) They gave me an epidural to get past the last hurdle - it was too numbing and I asked for it to be switched off. We had a breather for it to wear off, then I birthed her. It was rather painful, but the hypnobirthing breathing techniques made it bearable enough for me to get through it.

It's such a massive learning curve. Breast feeding really is an art form! I'm getting the hang of it, but my boobs are just sore and engorged. I've started expressing a bit by hand before she feeds to get things going. Getting the wind out of the little one is a challenge too.

It's funny how our days are structured now with lots of clock watching and scurrying to get things done in between feeds! I take my hat off to the ladies who have a newborn and another child(ren).

Congrats Creative - I second that on the hair - what a gorgeous little thing she is. I didn't realise this was your first baby am I right? I thought the little girl in your sig was yours smile.gif Well done on the labour, it sounds like it was a positive experience for you.

CC: the breastpump - I can't express - I don't have a let down - it takes me forever to get about 10mls. I haven't even bothered this time around. I had the medela first time - I hated it - it was too strong for me, but then my nipples were damaged. I also had the Avent manual - that was a little better but still no let down. I'm really glad your nipples are healing though, hopefully you can get back to BF full time asap.

Michelle woo-hoo on the moving dates! You're moving to Vic??!! Whereabouts? PM me if you don't want the world to know wink.gif How's that well-behaved little munchkin of yours going? WHat a dream sleeper she is - especially as she's so tiny! You are doing a sterling job at this mummy of three business! Flynn has to go back to the doc in two weeks if I am still concerned, he is happy to medicate then given the girls history of silent reflux. Hopefully it will all settle down for the little rabbit.

I love, love your new sig pic biggrin.gif

Flynn has gone to bed at 8:15pm tonight instead of 11:20pm. Uh-oh - could be in for a VERY long night now!! wacko.gif

Spoke to soon, I can hear him fussing now!! And he's up again!!

WHat's everyone else's schedules? I am trying to work out when an appropriate bed time is? The girls go to bed at 8pm so I'd love to get them all going the same time like now but I fear he will be awake at 11pm now, RARING to go for a couple of hours! Yikes.

CC - I've used the advent iq as electric and manual, and I used the medela when I was in hospital. I hadn't found any difference in the amount I was able to express, so not sure why that's happening for you?

Creative - Indi was posterior too, so I know exactly how you were feeling! But the midwife didn't tell me until after she was born that she had been posterior. I told her I'd had back pain but I thought that was because of my bad back! I hope I get to feel the difference between that and anterior in the future!

Michelle - wow, so are you excited about moving? Life's pretty full on for you at the moment. I can't believe I'm struggling so much with one little baby when you and B are doing so well with 3.

We went to the mall and had some dinner there. Indi dozed between 3 - 8pm before she finally went to sleep. She hasn't been too bad today, she still didn't sleep much but at least there wasn't as much screaming.

Hi Girls,

Wow, so this is where the conversations are at now! Its no wonder the other forum was so quiet!! hehe.

How are you all feeling? Hows the b/feeding and life with a new/ another baby going?

Ill write my birth story here:

Saturday 18th Oct, I had bloody shows, all day long. Sunday morning my DH and I went to the local markets for some breakfast and had a look around. I decided to try some Castor Oil earlier that morning to kick start labour hopefully. Then, at 11am I started to get some full on contractions. I rested all day, anticipating a big night of work. 7pm comes around and the contractions are becoming much more intense, and I ask Andrew to call the midwife as they were 3-4 minutes apart, lasting 1-2 minutes. She encouraged us to stay home as long as we can, and to call her when the contractions are 2-3 minutes apart, lasting 1minute. Not long afterwards, my water broke, and 'GUSH' all over the towels I had put underneath me on the bed. My waters were clear and the contractions picked up. 9pm came around and I was in tears saying to Andrew that I couldnt do it at home anymore. My midwife said for us to come on into the birth centre. We arrived at the hospital, and got settled. My lovely midwife had the room set up so beautifully. The lights were dimmed, the water was running in the tub, and there were cusions and mats on the floor. I laboured for about an hour, and then she decided to check me. We all thought from the intensity of my contractioins, that i would at least be a good 4cm dialated. She told me not to put too much emphasis on the dialation. So, she checked me at 10pm and I was only 2cm dialated, baby at station -2. I laboured for a couple of hrs in the shower then the midwife encouraged us to do the stairs at the hospital. So we did lots of stairs, and by then I was so exhausted. My midwife checked me again at 2am, and I was STILL only 2cm dialated. Seeing that I was so tired, she said that perhaps I should have a lay down and see if the relaxation helps to stir things up. I only had 2 contactions between 2-3am. Then NOTHING! It stopped!!

I woke up at 4am to NO contractions and some severe disappointment! My midwife told me that it was likely that the castor oil had sent me into labour but my body wasnt entirely ready. She said that because I had tested positive to Strep B, and that my waters had broken, then they could not let me go home with my waters broken as it would put our baby at risk of infection. So they organised for me to go to the birth suite with my midwife and start Syntocin.

So, we were in the Birth Suite now, and its 6am, and the Syntocin has started. Im fairly exhausted and nervous at starting the syntocin, but happy that soon Id meet my little boy. It only took an hr for the contractions to go from nothing to UNBAREABLE! I was contracting 2-3 minutes for 1 minute, and the pain was, well on a scale of 1-10.. it was 20! I was howling and screaming the walls down. 10am comes around and I was only 4cm dialated!! Another 4hrs (2pm) of screaming, crying, howling, panting and counting to distract me, I was only 5cm.

We carry on, time was flying, however my DH was struggling to watch me in this pain with little progression. He was amazing, encouraging me the whole way, and doing whatever he could to help me. 5pm comes around and I am only 6cm dialated and the doctors are concerned that this labour is too long, and for the babys wellbeing. My midwife negotiates more time for me to labour with them. So far I have tried to use alternative pain relief methods, as was my plan. 5:30pm, and I have had ENOUGH! I turn to my midwife and say that I cannot do this anymore, and that I want an epidural. She was so wonderful and understanding, she was non-judgemental, but she said, as long as this is what you want, I will organise it for you. She said I should in no way feel like I have copped out, and that I had done a great job lasting this long. Her words really helped me feel at peace with my decision. I had the epidural put in at 6pm, and OH MY GOODNESS, such relief!! I was so chatty and happy and relieved to be free of pain. I could feel the contractions but none of the pain. It was so AMAZING!

The docs negotiate with my midwife to give me until 8pm and if there is no change in the cervix then, we may need to look at some other options. So, I chew everyones ears off for the next 2hrs, high on the fact that I was pain free. 8pm comes around and the midwife checks me, and I am only 7cm, however, my cervix is swollen and odematous. She informs the doctors and they say it is too dangerous to deliver with a swollen cervix as it can interfere with future deliveries. By this stage, as long as the baby was safe, I didnt care how he came out. They said that they were doing an emergency c-section, then they would check me and take me for the c-section at 9pm.

So... my midwife attempts all she can. She does some hip manipulation, to try to open my pelvis. She does some leg lifts, to shift bubs head, incase that was bumping on an angle against my cervix.

9pm comes around, and no doctors. I was gowned up, preop questions done, and 9:15 comes around, still no doctors. I started to get this phenomenal pressure in my bowels and I told my midwife that I needed to push. She said, 'Just go with it'. I do a few pushes and I told her that I swear that there is a head between my legs. She had a look, no head... She got some gloves on and had a quick check and his head was about half a finger length up my vagina. She went to tell the docs, who didnt think it was his head. They thought it was swelling. I continue to push, and a doctor came to check me at 9:40pm, and sure enough, cervix was fully effaced and dialated, and head was poking out during contractions. So the c-section was cancelled and we were going to have this baby out in no time. I was coached by the midwife to push, when to hold off, and sure enough, at 10:13pm on Mon 19th October, my little boy, Jack Cayden Glenwright was born into this world. My boy was put straight onto my chest, and it was the most beautiful thing ive experienced!! Little Jack fed not long afterwards and it was such a special time. He weighed 8 pounds 9 ounces! This was truely the most beautiful experience of Andrew's and my life. The most painful and most difficult, yet the most rewarding. Thankyou for taking the time to read our story!

Hey Serenzy, Feeling good thanks, a little sore and mellow, but so incredibly in love!! Thats so great that Georgia loves her sling! You should get a photo of her in it!! I cant believe she's 2 weeks already as well!! WOW. Thats exciting about your move to Vic. Only problem is that you'll have to put up with Victorians laugh.gif joking guys.

Cass I hope that she starts settling better, pls let me know if you discover any tricks!

Its getting better feeding Jack. It was tricky to get at first as I expected him to latch straight on. But the midwives were so lovely and they were supportive and just said that it was all normal for him to suck and feel around with his hands. Knowing that made me relax and not stress, and since then, Im really enjoy his time when he is attaching.

Yeah Nadia is my first baby. The girl in my sig is my darling neice wub.gif
It was a complex delivery but I was able to come out of it positively. I would do it all again!

Cass, yeah it was so painful in that one spot! I'd like to think it would be much easier without that complication. If that happened again, next time I will trust my intuition and get her turned. The midwife didn't pick up on it... sad.gif

How is everyone going with settling and feeding?

Nadia was a bit restless today, but we had a lot of visitors over. Mums and MIL telling me how to do things didn't help. So much conflicting advice, and not helpful at the moment I try to feed!

Morning Mummies!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

We have been blessed with 2 nights of sleep from Charlotte!! She seems to have decided to drop her 10.30 feed and sleep from 7.30/8.30 through to 2.00 am!!! YAY!!! Makes for a very hsppy mummy! She appears to have her day/night sorted out and sleeps perfectly through the night - but refuses to sleep in her cradle during the day - never mind, i can handle an awake baby through the day if it means sleep through the night!!!

How is everyone else going?

I would love to share some pics of Charlotte - but I am not entirely sure how to post photos here!! All my pictures are on facebook.

Serenzy - Georgia is just devine! Can I ask which sling you are using? I really want to get one - but there are just too many choices!!

Creative - congrats on your beautiful little girl - I love her name - so gorgeous.

LL Jack is divine!!! What an incredible birth story...you are a champion! And how wonderful was your midwife persisting and trying everything she could to avoid medical intervention. wow. The whole thing sounds like my first labour, so long and incredibly exhausting.

I'm astounded at all these naughty posterior babies! I think we've had more posterior than anterior???

Michelle, I am so excited for your move! We will definitely have to catch up one day! Tell me what sling are you using for Georgia? I used the Baby Bjorn all the time with the girls but my little rabbit is just too small at the moment and doesn't really like being upright yet. He doesn't like going up on the shoulder either so I've been considering a sling. Plus I love that a sling avoids having people touching him and asking for a hold when I don't want them too!!! biggrin.gif

Flynn is still all over the shop during the day. I'm trying to just let him work it atm. Last night he went to bed at 10pm and woke at 2pm and didn't want to go back to sleep!!! He then woke again at 6am and 9am. We had a bunch of teenagers having a party in our court last night with hideous blaring doof doof music and they woke me up at 12:30am riding kids trikes down the hill screaming all the way mad.gif What the hell is with teenagers these days?! I'm exhausted today because I didn't get the long stretch of sleep when Flynn did!

Sara that is fantastic news on Charlotte sleeping so well! What good little girls we have in here!!

Hi all, how was everyones weekends??

Hi SaraSteve, did you have another name in our old thread or did u join this group? Im guessing you have a little Charlotte?? Id love to see some piccies! smile.gif

Hi Maman, Flynn sounds like he's having fun at all hours of the night!! wacko.gif You poor soul! I hope he settles better tonight for you!! How rude are those teenagers, you should have gone out there and put on the mother voice, "EXCUSE ME!!!" lol. laugh.gif Nothing scarier then a sleep deprived new mum!! hehehe.

Serenzy, thats so sweet that little Georgia is more awake now! Is the military going to move all of your gear for you guys so that you dont have to pack? I hear they try to make it as easy as possible for families to move around... How are your girls adjusting to having another sibling?

Creative, OOH she is your neice!! We need to see pics of your Nadia!! smile.gif Im glad that your experience of having Nadia turned out to be a positive one, dispite her being posterior. Conflicting advice is so unhelpful. Im sure you and Nadia will work out what works for you two! Perhaps you need people around who can encourage you a bit more instead of telling you what to do.. Everyone has good intentions but it can so become too much hey, esp with lots of visitors!!

Thanks for your nice comments about my little Jack. He is such a good boy and he is learning to attach so well, and so quickly. Im so impressed by him. Yesterday we had visitors all day and I was so exhausted! Then Jack wanted to feed for like 3hrs straight, or even longer. He just wouldnt settle, and he'd cry after I fed him. I ended up in tears in the bedroom thinking I didnt have enough milk, or that I was doing something wrong.. My midwife rang this morning and she's so wonderful. She was so encouraging and said its all completely normal for some babies to cluster feed at a certain time of day, and just to be aware and go with it, and that it will help increase your milk supply! But on the upside, he slept like 4-5hrs after he finally went to sleep at 11pm. Then he fed and had another 4hrs sleep. THANK GOD FOR THAT!!

How are you guys all going feeding and settling now? We need more piccies!! I think my little man has grown already!! Im with you Cass, I told him not to grow up!! wub.gif

I agree Michelle, what is it with kids these days?!!

Flynn is vomiting less yay!! No projectiles for two days biggrin.gif I think it's helping me being aware of keeping him in the cradle position after a feed instead of sitting him up. I am too scared to jinx anything by hoping he doesn't have the reflux unsure.gif I love those breeze slings, I may have to invest!

LL that is such brilliant news about Jack's feeding. Flynn was great at it too. Although I simply cannot believe how hard he draws down after latching on. O.M.G. it must be a boy thing, it feels like he is going rip my whole nipple off sometimes, he's such a strong sucker! wacko.gif Flynn definitely cluster feeds every night. But as you say, it's so hard but then they seem to have a bigger sleep. YOu sound like you are doing a marvellous job! biggrin.gif

Hello - thought I'd let you all know that I'm still alive!

I'm not in much of a state to do personals, though I actually read the wonderful birth stories yesterday (and Jack is just gorgeous!) and should add that people who have parties near new mums should be shot on sight laugh.gif

We're home and well. I had a few complications - lost 1L of blood again, and had to have surgery under a GA for the third-degree tear I gave myself; so I'm a bit battered and not up to much. But Imogen is beautiful, she's feeding well (she's mangled my nipples, but hey, pain helps me stay awake to feed her at 4am) and I'll post a pic or two of her to the FB group very soon. Hope everyone else is still doing well.

ETA - just wanted to say hi to SaraSteve! What's in a lactation cookie?

Serenzy - that would be awesome if you could PM the link to the FB group - that way I won't have to trouble my baby brain with learning how to post photos in here! Thank you!

And that breeze sling looks awesome!! Will be perfect for the summer heat - am definately going to look into getting one. Did it take long to receive after placing your order?

LadyLumps - I did join the other group at the very beginning of my pregnancy - and then I got shy and never ended up posting!! So I am making an effort to be involved in this group now! hehe!! P.S Jack is so handsome!

Well, today I got motivated and made myself a HUGE batch of lactation cookies - I have had some trouble with my supply - which I think stemmed from Charlotte being in the SCN (no skin to skin contact to start with and I was also so stressed so my milk never came in). The cookies seem to be working quite well!! So we will see how that goes.

Best be off...Charli is about to have a bath!

I hope everyone has a restful night.

Michelle I had a crappy night too sad.gif I hope Georgia is a little more settled for you today poor little poppet.

My supply has definitely settled though - Flynn fed every 2-3hrs from 5pm yesterday through to 5am. sad.gif My nipples feel like they are going to fall off. He has his days and nights confused so it's tough love today - I am waking him every 3 hours and am going to have to keep him awake for as long as possible. He's so sleepy in the day he just falls asleep after 5 mins on the boob and then tries to make up for it all evening and night! I can't believe how alert and awake he was last night. He was taking an 1.5hrs each time to settle - I was in tears feeling very sorry for myself by 5am. sad.gif He doesn't like sleeping in his bassinette in the day either the little munchkin but I have to strict today and no sleeping in arms!!
