I am back here too. The last two weeks have been a bit of a blur and we're still trying to figure everything out but we're getting there.

How is everyone else getting along? I'm tipping as we're all pretty quiet nobody has much internet time anymore.

Hope all mums and bubs are going well x

I'm still here!!

Master D is going well, just over 4 weeks old now!

He really is a dream baby. Sleeps, eats etc etc very well.

Breastfeeding hasnt been a very easy journey for us, but after talking with a lactation consultant, we have put some methods in place to try and make it a bit smoother for us both. It seems to be working well so far!

I am getting use to the sleep deprevation - lately it hasnt been so bad. He is leeping longer, so I am getting more sleep...yay!

We have another checkup on Friday, so cant wait to hear how he is going.

MrsMay, can I just say I am SUPER IMPRESSED that you are DTD...I read about it in another post. No way are we even close to doing that yet!!!!!!!!

Hope everyone else is well.

Quick question - how is everyone going with their bodies? I gained 11kg and have lost 8kg so far. Have just started walking today and will start doing some situps soon to try and get rid of my little belly...

lol!! Yep, we have been DTD since she was 3 weeks old a couple of times a week wink.gif we only waited that long as had to wait for the loss to finish. For some reason my libido came back after having Tabitha and because I had no trauma from the birth at all I was "ready to go" lol. Now I just need to get the depo-provera injection and we're all sorted! wink.gif

I am now a little lighter than pre-pregnancy weight and back to the size I was pre-preg. Some days I don't feel like I was ever pregnant lol until I see my stretch marks or catch sight of my boobs! Very weird.

Have just started the water tablets which have helped my feet immensley, I can actually get my boots on now!! biggrin.gif

Tabitha is doing well, still measuring in the 25th percentile which is fine.

We had a big day yesterday, miss T decided to start rolling over!! Scared the crap out of me to start with, I turned around to get the remote during tummy time, looked back and she was on her back!!! So I flipped her over again and watched her roll over from her belly to her back. Geez I'm in trouble now!!

So glad to hear everyone is going well and MrsMay - way to go on DTD, we're only two weeks in but I can't see myself being ready for that by next week! smile.gif

I am also glad to hear that you are all getting used to the sleep deprivation. I got a full night last night thankfully but the past few had been a bit full on and I don't feel like I can catch up.

Quick question - does anyone wake their little ones up for a feed every four hours or do you wait for them to wake up on their own? I've heard mixed reports and I'm not sure what to do.

We used to wake up Tabitha for feeds but that was only as she had jaundice and we needed to feed her often to get rid of it. Even then the midwives said to let her sleep as long as she wanted overnight as long as she was feeding every 2-3 hours during the day.

Now that her jaundice has gone I generally let her sleep as long as she wants during the day as well as at night, however if she is approaching 5 hours or so since her last feed I will go in next time she stirs and wake her up properly.

We have found in the last couple of days that Tabitha has settled into a routine of waking between 4:30-5am every morning for her first feed, regardless of when the last one was the previous day, ie: we can put her down at 10pm or midnight and she will still sleep through to 5am - bonus!! The next feed after that is 9am, so I will go back to bed inbetween those feeds too.

they are duiretics - the ones I am on are called moduretic. The doctor was a little hesitant to give them to me (I think he thought I was just trying to shed weight) but after explaining that I can't move my toes half the time he understood why I wanted them!! They also lower blood pressure so this was another reason he prescribed this one. I am now taking a half dose as the swelling has gone down and will keep decreasing until I find an equilibrium.

DTD?!?!? Are you serious? Bloody hell :-)

Actually we tried the other night and it was painful for me. I had some perineal stitching and I can still feel it sort of scar tissuey... it was kinda painful so we stopped. Oh well, I'll wait another couple of weeks and see what happens.

Mrs W - as for body going back, I feel like it's been pretty good. Im not sure how much weight I gained in the end, nor how much I weigh now but all my clothes seem to still fit again which is nice. Belly is still a little loose (will that EVER return?!? Probably not) and my belly button is strange - kinda stretch and deeper than it used to be?! All in all though, thankfully its not summer and Im not in swimmers, but Im pretty happy with my bounce back. Looking forward to being able to run with the pram in a few weeks maybe. That should sort it out.

As for waking for feeds - Im trying to get onto a 4 hourly feed. During the day it seems ok (I woke at 4.5 hours today) but at night its still pretty much 3 hours on the nose, give or take a few feeds here and there. Im not too concerned though, I'd love him to go longer at night, but he's still only 5 weeks so hopefully it'll plateau out shortly.

The clinic told me that most babies tend to have their biggest sleep before midnight which is true for us. We had 5.30 - 1245am the other night.. if only that was from middnight onwards :-) we'll get there.

Oh and Mrs W - careful on the situps. My friend is a pilates instructor and she gave herself a hernia by returning to sit ups too early (I asked her when I could try them and she said its too soon). Things like 'the plank' and isometric ab stuff is ok - fit ball balancing core strength stuff - but just crunches are the worst thing to do straight away.... Apparently.

Hahaha yep completely serious, however I'm sure it would have been a totally different story if I'd had stitches!! That reminds me, really need to sort out that injection lol or I could be in trouble!!

Hubby has a new work schedule, so now he gets every Sunday & Monday off which is working well as it means we can go places without the weekend crowds etc smile.gif also means he can look after Tabitha one day a week when I go back to work which means one less day at daycare! smile.gif

we went out yesterday and spent the afternoon shopping after a leisurely lunch smile.gif Tabitha must have behaved cos she knew we were in baby shops lol. Bought more cloth nappies (we use these ALL the time), a caddy for the pram which holds water bottles, keys, mobile etc, and another "cactus suit" hehehe. The cactus suit is actually a Love Me Baby wrap, but she looks like a cactus in it! She loves sleeping in it so now we have bought a 2nd one, just makes life much easier and beats wrapping any day!! One zip and she's done biggrin.gif
