and what is this name you are calling Eliza ? laugh.gif
I keep calling her Eliza Jayne ph34r.gif It is funny actually, as I have no idea why, but Brian also has said it, and so has my dad. I really don't know why we do it though, as I never even considered the name Jayne.


And as for typing and feeding, I can only do it when she is on my left breast, but I can only read a book when she is on my right. Must work on my ambidextornous (sp?)

We are doing this too!!! It's bad. blush.gif We keep calling her Mia - our niece in the US.


Same, We've gotten better but he's been called Finlay, Miles and Sam (!) our nephews name! And FInlay and Miles are geting called Ben now too!

Everyone busy being mum or are you all still in the pregnancy thread?

All is well here. Typical 3 week old really.

Still getting used to managing my time between the 3 of them, Miles especially as he's been a bit unwell. He is throwing some awesome tantrums. Not sure if it is just him/his age or due to the arrival of Ben..... I'm thinking all of the above.

Finlay adores Ben and always wants cuddles and is helping to burp him and tucks his blankets in and holds his hand when he is crying in the car wub.gif I have had to fish some food out of his mouth a few days in, but he knows now!

I've recovered really well from my cesearian and im feeling great. Much better than after Finlay's birht! Just a bit of swelling and tenderness (didn't help that I got kicked in the scar by standing too close behind finlay on the swing today - ouch!)

Better go, Miles is screaming again.

Good to hear from you Liz, had been wondering how you were. We are currently still hanging out in the pregnancy thread, just until Chiara pops. Just between you and me (and the whole forum) I am predicting we will be here within the week wub.gif

That is so cute about Finlay wub.gif how lovely that he adores his little brother. Miles will come around, it is probably just an adjustment thing, and as you said, probably an age thing too.

Just gorgeous wub.gif.

You have to tell me how you do it, Liz. Take care of a newborn and two other littlies. I am quite overwelmed with just the one and I don't think I can go through this again.

D you still feel pain in your scar? My external scar is fully healed but the internal one still feels very tender and painful at times. It doesn't hurt as much if I've been active. Maybe that's why you've healed well. Three kids will keep you active!

BB- not much tenderness any more, only above the outer scar where it is still swollen and tender inside.

Not sure how I do it, I went to play group this morning and stopped in at the supermarket to get a few bits and I had, miles in the trolley seat, Finlay in the trolley and Ben in the capsule balanced on top! Even I was thinking I must look like a sight and WtF am I doing! blink.gif

It certainly can be very overwhelming especially when it is your first as you just have no idea what to expect. Honestly, it does get easier, just don't expect to everything to be text book. With my boys the 10-12 week marks a real turning point.

If Miles wasn't being a hedevil the whole time and Ben not crying as soon as I put him down, it'd be a walk in the park!

So cute, I've just realised Finlay has fallen asleep next to me on the couch with his head on my shoulder wub.gif

A friend once told me that she found going from 2 to 3 kids easier than going from 1 to 2. I'm not so convinced yet...

You're amazing, Liz. I have so much admiration for you. Hmm if you're driving around with three bubs in tow, I don't know what's stopping me then. I do find it hard to coordinate going out around feeding time.

I guess i should stop worrying about my cut still feeling tender because it sounds just like you described. it must be normal. it does hurt when i get up in the middle of the night. It might have something to do with the way i sleep maybe.

Gosh I'm jealous of you ladies who are recovering so well. The blood clot they found on Friday is now making it's way out of my body by seeping through my incision sad.gif Its very painful and uncomfortable - they told me to use sanitary pads on it so now I have a careful arrangement of pads all through my granny knickers. ph34r.gif I would be lost without my mum's help.

Erin, my mum had a hystrorectomy a few years back and had to use samitry pads on her scar too. Just be really careful, as her site then got infected. Also, let it air during the day too. Prob impossible with a baby and 3 year old, but the air will also help.

Where is FoF Mel?

Erin, I'm sorry you've had this set back. Make sure you air it as well and don't let ithe area get moist. Exposing the area to sunlight for around 5-10 min might also help. It's a good thing your mum is thereto help you.

I better have a shower and wash my hair while E is asleep.

I'm here! Haven't run away!! Just been busy.

Things are much better with my family - mainly because I did my usual "turn the other cheek" and invited them all over on the weekend. It annoys me that I always seem to be the one who has to do that but it feels pretty good to be the bigger person. I saw a Psychologist yesterday and it went well. He said some things that really made sense. I've made more appointments to go back fortnightly.

My Dad minded Ava while I went which was nice. He is 71 and I don't imagine many men his age would be comfortable and confident with a 3 week old baby.

I have a yucky cold that just keeps coming and going. It started before I had Ava and keeps dying down then flaring up. It got worse again last night - sore throat, bad cough, headaches. Such a pain. Even Ava sounds a little congested. One good health breakthrough though is my blood pressure - it's back to normal and I am off the meds - woo hoo!

Ava continues to be a lovely little girl. She never cries all that much so my only frustration is when she doesn't do what I think she should (or what the books say)!! She has some long stretches of being awake during the day and the last couple of days she has woken at 4:30pm and won't go to sleep til 7:30/8. Is that normal? Mind you it probably doesn't help that when Brian gets home he revs her up!!

Sorry for lack of personals - I am thinking of you all though and I raved about you when the community nurse asked me what support I have!!!

Totally normal!! It's called the witching "hour" Ben is awake and unsettled from about 5-10pm. So tiring.

I find its easiest going out once they've just been fed, burped and are about to be asleep. Crying in the car is so painful to have to listen to. I'll get Ben into the capsule to go out well ahead of going out, so he's ready to go when I am finally able to get out the door.

I'm sure I've said it already, but you all really must join a mothers group, in real life thru the community health nurse. It is invaluable! I'm still the best of friends with all the ladies in mine from 3.5 years ago, and we still meet in the park every week, we've all been camping together and have ladies nights all the time. We've all cried, screamed and been there for each other when we've all been at breaking point.

Mel and I forget who else is in Sydney, if you ever want to meet up or come to my place, you're more than welcome.

Thanks Liz. I will take you up on the offer eventually. I feel like having a good cry right now! It's not that things are particularly hard but it's still an emotional time. The family stuff still hurts too. sad.gif

It's just taken several attempts to get Ava down for a sleep. We tried the bassinette a couple of times and now she is in the pram (thought I could take her for a walk if all else failed).

When I put her down and she fusses I don't rush to her straight away but if she starts properly crying I will pick her up and cuddle her for a bit before trying again. Is that the right thing to do? (I'm nervous about creating bad habits).
